A Choice of Premium Wines
The Vipava Valley has many small, family farms, whose produce is carefully prepared for sale. Quite a number of winemakers bottle their wines, proudly adorning them with labels narrating their personal stories and those of the land. Within the relatively small Vipava Valley winegrowing district, you will find an extraordinary diversity of great wines. Due to the range of the sites, the viticultural practices and winemaking principles, wines based on the same variety can turn out quite different between the respective makers, though quality is a common trait shared by all. Taste the palette of noble flavours!
