Avoiding the pay toll highway, Matt and I stumbled upon the hilltop town of Buje. We parked in an empty lot at the bottom of the hill and hiked our way into town. To our surprise, the town was in festive mode celebrating this year’s grape harvest.
Local merchants where selling olive oil, honey, lavender, soaps, candles, woodwork and of course wine!
Make shift wine bars where erected through out the town. Everyone and their dog was tasting wine and eating grapes.
Fried cabbage, sausages and pork chops on the grill.
We turned a corner and found this, lovely ladies stomping on grapes along to “umpa” music played by a live band.
Can you say National Lampoon Europe vacation!?!
