Degustations and tours

»Its taste summons up the freedom of the man who gives in to life,
summons up the love of a woman, breathing in tune with your heartbeat,
summons up the trust of a child, as it places a hand in grandfather's rugged one.«


This is an unique taste of life. A taste of wines from the Vipava 1894 cellar.

You, too, can embark on a sensual adventure, a tour of one of the largest and oldest wine cellars in Slovenia, the Vipava 1894 cellar, with a wine degustation. While walking among the wooden barrels, our expert will share with you the wonderful story of the creation of the wine cellar, and if you are lucky, even reveal some small secrets of the production of the finest quality wines of the Vipava 1894 cellar. The entire guided tour of the cellar with the degustation lasts for about an hour. After the completed tour, you also have a possibility to purchase select wines from the Vipava 1894 cellar and thus relieve the story of flavours of our wines at home, or pleasantly surprise your friends and acquaintances with a bottle of carefully chosen wine.

A LOOK AT THE VIPAVA 1894 WINE CELLAR TOUR


STOP 1:

Visitors are welcomed at the exhibition showcase and are given a brief introduction to the Vipava Valley and the Vipava 1894 wine cellar with its history

The Vipava Valley is a picturesque vineyard area, a land of sun and mild climate, where the Alpine and the Mediterranean world meet. The sun-facing terraces are the ideal environment for vine cultivation. This is a place with a strong viticulture tradition that dates far in the past. The history of the Vipava Valley is mainly a history of the grapevine and wine, that reflects also in the rich customs and traditions of the area.

Visitors are lead to the grape reception area and presented with the initial procedures of turning grapes into wine

Grapes are delivered in tractor trailers or trucks to the reception area. The daily capacity is up to 500.000 kg of grapes, or more. The tendency is to buy the same grape variety steadily for several consecutive days.

The large barrel

Our giant barrel is the largest barrel still in use in Slovenia, in which Merlot wine is stored. The volume of the barrel is 23.7601L, which means that if we were to drink 1L of wine every day, it would take 63 years to drink it all.
