From Stara Trta we just told you about, we take a trip to a village nearby called Malečnik to find a winery on our must-visit list by the name of Joannes Protner. In fact, the owners of the winery have taken grafted grape vine material from Stara Trta (Žametovka – a red Sloveniam grape variety) and planted them two years ago. In a couple of years we look forward to seeing the results from this amazing project and an impressive way to preserve a local legend.
Oh, dober dan, dober da-a-an iz Slovenije!
Slovenia is, without a doubt, a boutique country. Few people know about it and appreciate it accordingly. Three years ago it was just a border we had to cross on our way to Italy and, I have to admit, it was a country that we had to keep in mind was not Slovakia but „the other one”. Now it is a place that is in our hearts and we do our best to visit it each year, not to mention I dream of living there someday… having a small vineyard and… well, a tiny, well equipped winery wouldn’t be such a bad idea either.
