Description

Take a perfect combination of five different daytrips to completely different wine areas of Slovenia. 

Explore and experience Piran 

Piran is a tourist highlight of the Slovenian coast, strongly influenced by the old Venetian Republic. Walk through its narrow medieval streets wedged between beautiful houses, churches and squares and enjoy the breeze that blows from the sea. The main square is named after Giuseppe Tartini, a famous violinist and a composer who was born in Piran.

On the hill above the square you can see the signature Church of Saint George, who is also the patron saint of the town. The small town is still partially surrounded by a typically Venetian wall which used to serve as protection of this marine and salt trade hub in the Bay of Piran.

Goriška Brda is Europe’s next hidden gem

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.

Maribor and the Old Vine

One of the main tourist attractions of Maribor is the Old Vine, the Guinness Book-certified oldest grape vine in the world. The Old Vine is more than 450 years old and it still bears fruits, which are festively harvested each year and produced into wine. This exclusive wine is used as a promotional gift for visiting state dignitaries, but the Old Vine House has a winery where you can taste regional wines. There is also an interesting exhibition on the history of the Old Vine. We can enjoy a wine tasting at this magical location.

Visit to the Slovenian oldest city

The oldest and quite possibly the prettiest city in Slovenia is built upon huge wine cellars on the banks of the river Drava. Laying by the Drava river, Ptuj was an important station on the prehistoric Baltic – Mediterranean amber trading route. Historically, it is one of the most important places in the country, and its 2000-year history can be felt as you walk through the town. You will admire the elegant city squares and townhouses, rich in architectural details and incorporated archaeological pieces. A view from the castle above the city is simply breath-taking.

Bizeljsko sparkling wine

Bizeljsko is one of many wine regions of Slovenia, mainly famous for its sparkling wines. However, other sorts thrive in this part, which has one of the kindest climates in the country. Some of the wineries hide another ethnology gem - repnice cellars, with centuries long tradition which was revived in the last couple of decades.
