Ok, I'm definitely interested. Tell me more about the area.
Goriška Brda (the so called ‘Tuscany of Slovenia’) and the Vipava Valley are both located in the Primorska wine region of Slovenia.
You will be able to sample a good range of red and white wines, from grape varieties you will be familiar with such as Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Pinot Grigot, Pinot Blanc,
Chardonnay and Sauvignon. Also lesser known grape varieties for your discovery and enjoyment, including Zelen, Rebula, Pinela & Malvasia (whites) and Barbera,
Teran & Refošk (reds).
The scenery of this region is absolutely stunning, characterised by rolling hills, cypress trees, medieval hill top villages and lush green vineyards – all sandwiched between the dramatic mountain peaks of the Julian Alps and the Italian Dolomites to the north, and the azure blue Adriatic sea to the south – providing contrasting backdrops to the fairytale landscape of this beautiful wine region. The area is also reknowned for its fantastic cuisine where you can enjoy a good variety of traditional Slovene dishes with hints of Italian influences.
The Istrian wine hills of the Slovenian Adriatic are also
located in the Primorska wine region of Slovenia, where the Italian influences on the wine, food and culture are again characteristic of the area.
This region is located directly on the Adriatic coastline, nestled between Trieste to the north and the Croatian border to the south,
historically being part of the Venetian Republic and Italy itself. The ‘terroir’ of the region, with its rocky landscape, chalky soil, infamous ‘burja’ wind and a dry climate lends
itself perfectly to the most popular Refošk (Refosco) and Malvasia grape varieties. Other popular varieties in this region include Cabernet Sauvignon,
Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Grigot, Sauvignon

"We LOVED our wine tour! It ended up only being 2 of us (one friend had to cancel last minute sadly) but Graeme was still very accommodating as were the vineyards.
Graeme was really informative, knew so much about the history of the region geographically/culturally/politically and also about wine, we walked away having learned a lot!
He also made sure we got our coffee fix in the morning and took us to a great place for lunch, if only I could remember the name!
Our favourite vineyard was definitely the first stop at Sveti Martin with our host Peter. The setting was incredibly charming, both the location of the vineyard and the cellar,
and Peter was very gracious and generous with the wine and home-made nibbles. I think we could have stayed there all day if I'm honest!
I have to take some time to write a proper review on TripAdvisor but did want to get back and say thank you for helping to arrange such a great day for us!"
