Walk in a straw hat between the rows of vines, cut ripe bunches of berries, feel like a midget near huge oak barrels, and then pour cool champagne into glasses ... After watching the films "Good Year" or "Walk in the Clouds" only such desires and appear.
Fortunately, you don't have to fly to France or Italy to discover the secrets of the tastings. The proximity of the seas and mountains, over 300 sunny days a year, suitable soil - all this made the Krasnodar Territory ideal for winemaking. Now isabella and nutmeg are grown there by about 50 companies, 19 of them conduct excursions. Wine tours around the Krasnodar Territory in 2021 provide an opportunity not only to learn how to reveal the bouquet of a drink, but also to knead grapes in a vat, like the hero of Celentano in The Taming of the Shrew, or to take a bath with the addition of sparkling wine.
Vineyard plantations spread out in the cradle of two seas at once: the Black and the Azov. The names of these areas, fertile for the production of chardonnay and Riesling, have probably heard even people who are far from the concepts of "terroir" and "blend". The trip itself along the Taman Peninsula, Anapa, Abrau-Dyurso will bring incredible pleasure. Green valleys, azure waves, sandy beaches, blooming gardens - gorgeous pictures in a vacation album. But the cherry on the cake, of course, will be a tasting overlooking the coast or mountains. Chin-chin!

Many cities located on the seashore have their own "fish" talisman. In Sevastopol it is red mullet, in St. Petersburg it is smelt. In Novorossiysk, this role is played by the hamsa. It is also called European anchovy.
During the Great Patriotic War, the inhabitants of the hero-city mostly ate hamsa, it saved them from hunger. There is even a monument dedicated to this fish. Now the festival is a kind of visiting card of the autumn Novorossiysk. At this time of the year, the anchovy gains fat for wintering, which makes it even tastier.
"Hamsafest - 2019" will be held on November 3-4 on the city embankment. Guests will see performances by musicians and professional chefs, attend master classes and taste fish delicacies.
