“The castle cellars will be also opened in Červený Kameň and Smolenice castles,” said Jarmila Dudová from the Small Carpathian Educational Centre in Modra, as quoted by the TASR newswire. “People can visit the cellars and wineries in 38 municipalities, from Bratislava, via Svätý Jur, Limbach, Pezinok, Modra, Doľany, to Trnava.”
For the very first time, people will be able to use the Small Carpathian express expected to simplify the travelling between Bratislava and Modra.
Among the biggest attractions are young wines from the Small Carpathian region as well as “the honesty of winemakers and friendly encounters”, Dudová said. The regional gastronomy will be offered by 61 cellars, she added.Read also:Read more
