The colourful, lively landscape with a Mediterranean character and intoxicating flavours could easily be called the “Slovenian Tuscany”. We will get to know all the corners of hills and valleys of this region, the energy of the friendly locals and their farms. While visiting the wine cellars, you will get to know the tradition of wine production, which is passed down from generation to generation. Each homestead has its own philosophy of wine production, so we will organize a visit with tasting of two different cellars with different approaches of winemaking. The invaluable knowledge and hard working hands have taken these wines to the world's top quality. However, when we combine a top-quality noble drop with old traditional recipes, we experience a fantastic combination for true gourmets.
