TASTE OF CVIČEK – THE STORY ABOUT A SPECIAL WINE OF DOLENJSKA

Get to know the Dolenjska countryside and make your own Cviček – a wine from the Dolenjska region, the only one in the world besides Tuscan chianti, composed of white and red varieties of wine. You will join Matjaž on his 150-year-old homestead and experience rural life then and today. After a welcome drink with Cviček, you will learn about the history of wine, its patrons, and the production of Cviček from early spring to late autumn. This is followed by a tasting of different wines (components of Cviček) with homemade cured meats and cheeses.
After the tasting, you will head up to the Grčevje wine-growing hill, sown with vineyards and »zidanice« (vineyard cottages). It offers a breathtaking view of the Krka river valley, so do not forget to take some photos! In the cellar from 1848, you will prepare your Cviček from various white and red varieties of wine and take it home with you. What a day to remember!
