The unlocking of the Grape Goat Nature Trail in Vrbovec, together with the carrying of the Grape Goat into the vineyard, is an opportunity to walk this 5 km long trail, leading through the vineyards and cellar alley of Vrbovec, in the company of members of the Friends of the Grape Goat Society, accompanied by the singing of a men's choir, to witness the revival of ancient traditions and to taste the wines of local winemakers.
At each stop along the route of the nature trail, a tasting of wines from one of the local wineries will be prepared. At the church square, at the start or finish, there will be a wine tasting of wines from the Guild of Willow Winegrowers, seating and hot refreshments, and dulcimer music will play.
The route is partly on paved and partly on dirt roads, in good weather it is passable by bike or with a baby carriage.
