Description of Wine Tasting Ljubljana

Wine Tasting Ljubljana is a delightful social experience that will introduce you to Slovenia’s ancient, rich and highly respected winemaking tradition. Spoil your taste buds by sipping on the best Slovenian wines, learn about the local culture, and meet new people in a cosy ambient in the centre of Europe’s greenest capital.

Wine and Slovenian culture are inseparable. Long before our ancestors settled this part of the world, the Celts had already begun cultivating wine around 2,500 years ago. But it wasn’t just ancestral knowhow that contributed to winemaking becoming the extraordinary phenomenon it is today. Slovenia has a very diverse landscape and unique mixture of microclimates that allows it to supply exceptionally high-quality wines. Nowadays, out of the 80 million litres produced annually, only 6 million litres are exported. The rest is enjoyed within Slovenia’s borders. Why? Because it’s just so good. And you don’t have to take our word for it. Join Wine Tasting Ljubljana and find out for yourself!

Slovenia is divided into three very productive winemaking regions, each with its own list of unique characteristics that turn their products into an amazing blend of flavours you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Ljubljana, Slovenia’s spellbindingly green and vibrant capital, is a cultural hub where the multitude of the country’s traditions come to mingle. Wine is no exception. There’s a whole array of quaint wine cellars and wine bars in Ljubljana that serve the very best wines this subalpine gem has to offer. By joining our Wine Tasting you’ll get the chance to taste 7 of the best Slovenian wines from all three aforementioned regions. The sunny, bora-swept south, the endless vineyards of central Slovenia, and the wines from the north-east, the quality of which is influenced by winemaking traditions beyond our borders. A truly exquisite experience.

We’ll take you to a 300-year-old wine cellar, spoil you with delicious appetizers, and let our expert English-speaking sommelier lead you down the thrilling path of tasting a selection of Slovenia’s best wines. You’ll learn a bunch of interesting facts and unlock the secrets of Slovenia’s deeply respected winemaking tradition. And you won’t be alone. You’ll be able to share this amazing experience with other local and foreign wine tasters. Remember, the best stories are always told and unforgettable memories made over a glass of wine!

By the end, you’ll be a full-pledged wine expert and will receive a certificate for becoming an ambassador of Slovenian wines to prove it. We guarantee that you’ll leave our Wine Tasting experience with a fresh knowledge of this blissful beverage, a list of new acquaintances, a souvenir, and most importantly – a smile.
