Description

This genuine gourmet experience of some excellent local wine and the region of Goriška Brda will enchant you forever!

Goriška brda region

Forget Provence and Tuscany; Slovenia’s region of Goriška Brda is Europe’s next hidden gem, waiting to be explored.

This is a land of gently rolling hills, covered with orchards and vineyards and dotted with small, forgotten villages.The gentle climate assures ideal growing conditions for grapes and Mediterranean fruits: cherries, peaches and apricots.

There is no mass production here, but the wine growers of Goriška Brda are world famous for the quality of their wine, and wine connoisseurs will recognise many of the names as we travel through Goriška Brda.

Dobrovo castle

Built on the ruins of a 13th century castle, this 17th century Renaissance structure is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the region. It housed different counts, marquises, and noble families, and today it offers the visitors an exhibition with different cultural and historical artefacts, beautifully painted walls, and an exhibition of a Slovene painter, Zoran Mušič.

Šmartno medieval village

Šmartno is one of the best preserved medieval villages in Slovenia. Built as a military border fortress in the Middle Ages, Šmartno’s name derives from the Church of St.Martin, the largest church in the region. Its bell tower was one of the seven fortification towers. St. Martin is the patron saint of wine-makers and St.Martin’s day on November 11 marks the point when must turns into wine. This day is celebrated in Slovenia by a traditional feast nation-wide.
