Description of Goriška Brda bike&wine tour

If you ask a Slovenian, which are the top 5 things to do in Slovenia, you will certainly get a reply: “Try the wine!” And where better to do so than in the renowned wine-producing region of Goriška Brda, also known as Slovenian Tuscany. Out of its 5000 inhabitants, 150 own large vineyards and make their own sorts of wine.

Now, are vineyards located? On hills. What else are hills good for? An interesting, diverse up-and-down kind of trail bike riding. You’ll be cruising among picturesque vineyards and small villages that make up an idyllic region known for its hospitality. At the end of our journey, you’ll have an opportunity to try the vineyard's produce by tasting some of the best wines of the region.

Terrain: asphalt and gravel

A diverse trail on a mixture of gravel and asphalt roads along the hills of Goriška Brda is easily accessible with e-bikes.

Fantastic ride among the vineyards and lovely villages. People are so nice as well. I am a wine lover and it's just a perfect combination of staying active and explore Slovenian wine and food at the same time.
