This year’s Saint Martin’s wine launched in Brno

Thousands of people attended the launch of Saint Martin’s wine in Brno on Monday where the first wine of the season was blessed by a priest on the city’s central square. In a revived marketing campaign, Czech winemakers offer new wines on November 11, the day of Saint Martin. Events featuring Saint Martin’s wine take place across the Czech Republic on Monday; in Prague, festivities are held in Náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad and other places. Last year, some 2.2 million bottles of the wine were sold.
