Slovenian Wine stands out as one of the most popular wines across the globe. A journey back in time – from the oldest Slovenian town Ptuj to modern Maribor with a fairytale setting and home of the world's oldest vine. This charming tour wraps up the tales of Slovenian wine making culture and authentic local wine traditions into one. Could not imagine a more proper place for some wine tasting of the area's most representative brands.

What to expect?

This tour kicks off at Ptuj which gives a very unique opportunity to meet some really warm and friendly people along the east side of the capital from whom you can hear a lot of tales about the Wine making uniqueness and local wine traditions of Slovenia. An adventure full of culture, local delights and lots of Wine.

Then we head on to Slovenian Styria region which is a lively and active centre called Maribor. The region is the proud owner of the world’s oldest wine. After the tour of Maribor lunch will be provided and there will be some free time to get fully acquainted with the area and understand a century old culture and traditions of the wine making. The tour finishes in the late afternoon / evening in Ljubljana.
