More about the destination
For many centuries, the Vipava Valley was known as the garden of the nearby regions, since fresh fruit and vegetables grow here nearly all year long. The valley's winemakers sold wines all across the Austro-Hungarian empire, while ambitious farmers drove fresh produce and meats to the markets of Trieste and nearby Gorica. Today, the valley offers many opportunities for culinary pampering: outstanding, multiple-award-winning restaurants, winemakers, agritourism farms and local wholesome food producers make the Vipava Valley a true paradise for lovers of first-rate cuisine.
