We will meet in the Youth Hostel Ajdovščina, from where the experienced team will take us to explore the Slovenia's hidden wine gem - Vipava Valley. We will visit two wine cellars, meet with two local winemakers, and learn about the production of wine. We will pamper you with a tasting of unique wines and local delicacies. An evening full of relaxed atmosphere in good company with singing and a glass of excellent wine is waiting for us! On the next morning - after a good cup of coffe, we will start our trip by uncovering the most beautiful tales of Ajdovščina. Traces of life from the Roman times, narrow streets of the old town center and ancient long coexistence of the resilient locals with the famous Bora wind are the heart and soul of the town. On your way to Vipava, a stop in the village of Vipavski Križ is a must. We will stroll through the medieval streets, squares and take the time to see its attractions. After a stop-over in Vipavski Križ we head to a delightful little town of Vipava, which is also called “Slovene Venice” due to its numerous bridges crossing the river of Vipava. Following the tour of Vipava, we head to one of the nearby villages, where we end our trip, tasting the best wine and dishes from local winemakers. After a refreshing stop we will return in the Youth Hostel Ajdovščina.
