Goriška Brda

Goriška Brda
The fairytale landscape with picturesque villages, nestled halfway between the Alps and the Adriatic, abounding in beauty, interesting spots and experiences. With a hint of the Mediterranean, it is well-known for its excellent wines and culinary specialities. The Goriška Brda is also known for their fruit, wine, olive oil and other products, as well as culinary specialities – a story full of experiences, memories and joyful gatherings.

Brda – the land of invigorating moments and rich cultural heritage

The fruitful land of Brda is the link between the Alpine and the Mediterranean worlds. It is covered by vast vineyards, orchards and olive groves where the best flavours of Brda are born. The idyllic Brda villages are nestled at the tops of rounded hills, which can be explored by bike or on foot. Local people will gladly offer a glass of their premium wines and genuine local delicacies. The wide palette of Brda wines can be tasted at the largest Slovenian wine cellar in Dobrovo. 

Culinary highlights of Brda can also be experienced at traditional events. Visit the village of Viševnik in spring, which is the birthplace of Rebula wine, when the Rebula and Olive Oil Festival takes place. Cherries take centre stage at the beginning of summer and are celebrated at the famous Cherry Festival. Cultural Gradnik Evenings in Medana are dedicated to the local poet Alojz Gradnik.

One of the famous cultural and architectural pearls of Brda is the medieval village of Šmartno, surrounded by five defence walls. In the past, Brda was a magnet for noblemen, so you can see many elegant villas and castles like Dobrovo Castle, Vipolže Villa and Gredič.
