December: The celebration of wine in Hlohovec

December: The celebration of wine in Hlohovec

The traditional consecration of wine on the feast of St. John, the Apostle, the Evangelist takes place on 27 December in honour of St. John, to whom a cup of poisoned wine was served. John blessed it and drank it, and the poison did not work.

Therefore, on his feast day the wine drunk is traditionally holy wine. This tradition is also maintained in Hlohovec. Local winemakers bring their young wines, which are blessed by the local priest. The event also includes a show and tasting of homemade spreads. The particular and traditional Cimbál music is played and a local folk ensemble performs.
