The Slovenian wine growing region of Primorska, directly on the border with Italy, is home to some of Slovenia’s most renowned wineries and winemakers. Discover the region’s exciting wines on this private wine tasting tour from Ljubljana.
After breakfast, your guide will pick you up at your hotel for a full day wine tasting tour. Your first stop will be at the picturesque village of Šmartno. Enjoy magnificent views from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea from a 144-metre-high viewing tower.
Continue driving towards the Italian border and the wine producing region of Goriska Brda. This region is linked with Collio in Italy and is considered one of the best white wine producing regions in Europe. Visit one of the area’s finest wineries and learn about Brda wines, followed by a traditional lunch with wine pairing.
After lunch, follow the Italian border to the south to discover the wine region of Vipava Valley, situated between two limestone plateaus that capture the whole of the Mediterranean climate. For centuries wine growing has been deep-rooted in this tiny piece of Slovenia. In the Vipava Valley, in addition to the established white wines of the region, you can also taste indigenous wines, such as Zelen, Pinela, and Ribolla Gialla. Visit a selected winery where you will have the opportunity to sample some of the much-loved local wine varieties and compare them with wines created from more well-known international grapes.
After your wine tasting, return to Ljubljana.
