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!
On the central Vipava Square, just by the Tourist Information Centre, the Vinoteka Vipava wine shop sells a large selection of upper Vipava Valley wines. Visitors may choose between 170 different wines made by acclaimed valley winemakers. Here you will find all the most important varietals and outstanding blends produced in the valley, including the old indigenous varieties Zelèn, Pinela and Klarnica.
