Slovenia's Wine Region

Slovenia happens to be one of the top wine producers in the world and has a rich history of wine making. That being said, the country has 3 main wine regions: Podravska, Posavska and Primorska. For this post, I will focus on the last region as it happens to be where we visited.

Goriska Brda is a sub region of Primorska and is referred to as the Tuscany of Slovenia. Tanja had booked a one night stay in a hotel in the region and the plan was to do some wine tasting and visit a Vineyard. The area we stayed at was so pretty it actually looked like a scene from a story book, that's the best way to describe it. 

After we had checked into our hotel we went out to get some wine at a nearby winery. I am not much of a drinker nor do I know much about wine but I certainly enjoyed partaking plus Tanja was also schooling me. We drank, loosened up a bit then made our way to dinner at a restaurant close by. The food was good and we had more wine before heading to our room.

The following day after a hearty breakfast, we passed by a winery owned by a local family that has been in the wine business for several generations. We got a taste of several wines then we were shown the wine cellar which was pretty cool, as one of the owner's sons explained the process they use to produce wine. There is so much that goes into it!

We left the place with several bottles of wine and headed back to Lubjlana. It was an amazing experience indeed. Right now I am tired so I have tried to summarize the experience because I am feeling sleepy but I will leave you with some photos to enjoy.
