  • By far this was the best wine tasting experience I’ve had. The staff were extremely welcoming and personable! Mojca was very knowledgeable about the wines and made us feel at home and comfortable.
  • Paid this winery a visit last year. A smaller familiy-run winery, nicely settled between the hills. The tour and wine tasting was very personal and of really good quality. We ended up buying a fair few bottles as both the whites and reds were of outstanding quality. Highly recommended!
