After we leave the port in Koper, we will head up into the hills above, towards Marezige village. It is just a short 10 km (6 mi) drive away and your guide will keep you entertained introducing you to Slovenia, while you will be able to take in the Mediterranean views of vineyards and olive groves on the way.
One of the best views of the Slovenian Istria and Koper is located right next to the popular “wine fountain”, where you can opt to try local wines from the largest wine cellar in Slovenia – Vina Koper and other renowned local wineries. Marezige is the cradle of “refošk”, the most typical wine from this region which has been around since the Roman times.
Your guide will take you to a local winemaking family, where you will take a walk through the vineyards and see where the magic happens. The winemaker will tell you about their history and introduce you to their wines glass by glass. In order to really experience the Slovenian winemaking hospitality, you will be able to enjoy some lunch there.
After a short drive through the hilly landscape, dotted with vineyards and old villages, we will conclude the tour back in the port, all the merrier and richer in knowledge about Slovenia and Slovenian wine culture.
