Goriška region is known among Slovenians as their version of Tuscany. Its endless hills with medieval fortified settlements on hilltops and nearby Italian border prove they might be right. However, this region deserves not to be compared to any other place because of its unique character.
Our first stop will be brand of Slovenian wines that goes beyond borders. They were the first in the area who took grapes of Slovenian and Italian land, added love and knowledge from both sides and made top quality wine called Sinefinis – no limits, no borders. After the tour of the winery and tasting of 5 finest local wines accompanied with local delicacies such as prosciutto, home made cheese and bread, it will be time for lunch in the local restaurant. Afterward, we will visit Šmartno fortified medieval settlement, and learn about the history of the area.
Our next stop will be the house of sparkling wines. Their top quality sparkling wines are highly ranked at international competitions and their estate – mansion from the 13th century – was proclaimed as an Italian UNESCO site. The famous wine maker will take us to his wine cellar and share with us knowledge about his old way of making sparkling wine and the magic he put into it.

I was very fascinated by visiting the local beekeeper. I did not know that Slovenians were so developed in beekeeping and emotionally attached to these small creatures. I learnt so much about bees and how important they are for all of us. Such a nice experience. Lake Bled was also very nice, the scenery was stunning. Thank you Eva for taking us to such lovely places.Sarah, Netherlands
