WhereKarst Wine Route
Osmica is the traditional sale of wine and other agricultural products directly in homesteads. In the past, this period of ‘sales without taxes’ could only last 8 days a year. That is where the name osmica (‘eight’) comes from. Today, this local peculiarity is a popular way of selling homemade specialties to farm visitors, topped off by socialising and music events.
Karst osmica – some farms organise them twice a year – attracts guests with excellent wines and typical Karst dishes. They are recognised by a wooden signpost and an ivy sprig that remains fresh for exactly eight days.
