Welcome to the land of the golden rebula, the scented zelen and the velvety teran.
Nowhere in the world can so many sublime tastes and so much carefully preserved ancestral heritage be found.
Embark on your journey into this colourful experience from anywhere - be it at the springs of Vipava in the “Venice of Slovenia”, from where the river will take you past the steep slopes of Čavno overlooking one of Slovenia’s greenest valleys; among the secrets of the underground Karst in Škocjan Caves or in the saddle of a white Lipizzaner; in Nova Gorica, with one foot in neighbouring Italy; protected by the walls of medieval Šmartno or Cerje with their magnificent vistas of the three beautiful natural landscapes of Brda, Vipava Valley and Karst - everywhere you go, get ready for a unique experience.
The uniqueness will be guaranteed by the region’s hospitable locals and providers of comfortable accommodation, either in the prestigious Hit hotels or the romantic countryside, by trained guides with minute knowledge of all the secrets held by our attractions, and our vintners who have endured blisters for centuries while perfecting the know-how required to create their enchanting wines, and whose brilliance is reflected by their names being found on the world's most prestigious wine lists.
We want to share all of that with you.
Therefore, we have prepared something extra for all those who want to stay with us: TWO TRAVEL CARDS, given during check-in that will allow you to visit the most precious gems of our natural, cultural and historical heritage as well as take in the region’s unique flavours.
THE LIGHT CARD is an identification card which should be kept with you during your travels.
THE DARK CARD with the label "tasting voucher" on its back, is meanwhile used for tastings.
The validity of the cards is guaranteed by the name of your accommodation, the dates of your stay and your host’s signature and stamp at the back.
Welcome to our map containing the locations of attractions, tastings and accommodation. Clicking on an icon will load a lengthier description to help you plan your route. Open, read about and choose your daily destination(s). Take the opportunity and visit as many of the attractions in the three regions as possible, as you will get a completely different impression of them in the company of trained guides than from the brochures.
The doors of 24 major attractions in Brda, the Vipava Valley and the Karst are open to you - with or without the travel card. Which one calls out to you the most?
Please check the SCHEDULE OF TOURS AND TASTINGS with the travel card to help you plan your trip. Most of the attractions only offer discounts and free tours by trained guides (or free admission if no tours are available), during certain dates and times. You are absolutely free to visit any attraction outside the schedule on the travel card, though you will miss out on the extras.
Our flagship wines, rebula, zelen and teran, as well as the best Brkini-Karst plum schnapps, gin, homemade juice and fruit ice cream, prepared especially for this occasion in a “bovla”, are available at 18 locations. Where will the road take you?
A prestigious hotel with wellness facilities, a romantic farm in the middle of the countryside, a glamping site or an apartment conveniently located nearby major transport arteries? All of the above are available within a radius of just under 50 km from the centre of our colourful story, which you will help to create on your unforgettable journey.
Our commitment to make your stay with us a comfortable one is coloured green. We think, act and live sustainably, as proven by numerous international recognitions. We will provide you with an unforgettable experience in accordance with the responsible travel standards of Slovenia Green & Safe. We will do everything to make you feel safe, relaxed and comfortable and we politely ask you to try and keep the environment clean as well.
We wish you an unforgettable experience, filled with new encounters and tastes that will make you want to return to the land of the golden sun, the green Vipava River and the red terra rossa soil!
Thank you for taking your time to visit Brda, the Vipava Valley and Karst.
