Local Wine Tasting
Posavje is famous for high-quality wines grown in two wine-growing areas along two wine roads. Perfect for everybody who like to taste great wine and learn the stories of local winegrowers, with a nice view at the wine-growing hills.
The Bizeljsko-Sremič Wine Road in the north is known for the repnice. The typical wines are White and Red Bizeljčan. Near Bizeljsko, in Stara vas,the company Istenič produces sparkling wines of the highest quality. The Istenič family is producing sparkling wine using the classical method for over 50 years. In their wine cellar, you can observe the production process, and then taste their sparkling wines in the tasting hall or on the beautiful sunlit terrace.
The Podgorjanska Wine Road lies on the right bank of the Sava River – locals also call it Kranjska. Gadova peč is the cradle of Cviček, which is a unique type of wine due to its taste and production method. Besides the Chianti from Tuscany, it is the only wine in the world that combines white and red grapes. Cviček is recognised as a protected local tradition.
