TYPICAL 2 NIGHT ITINERARY

2 Nights, 1 Amazing Trip

This shorter tour promises our investigators a taster of the diverse range of quality wine that Slovenia and Austria have to offer. Your fully escorted tour includes a choice of airport pick up and drop off, 3/4 Star accommodation and visits to award winning estates set in stunning surroundings, accompanied with superb local culinary delights! 

Also available with the option to add on a city break to Ljubljana or Zagreb.

DAY 1 - Arrive in Maribor, Slovenia
  • We greet you at Ljubljana or Zagreb Airport for the 90-minute drive to Maribor and our first night's accommodation.

  • From here it is just a short walk along the Drava River to our first tasting experience at The Old Vine House, where the oldest vine in the world grows. 

  • This celebrated vine was planted more than 4 centuries ago and still bears grapes. The vine produces very little wine which is reseved for VIP's, dignitaries and famous people. It's been presented to popes, presidents, emperors and even Brad Pitt! Here we will sample superior wines from the Maribor wine region.

  • After the tasting the evening is free for you to explore Slovenia's second city and European Capital of Culture 2012. There is plenty to see - the 15th-century castle, the 12th century cathedral, the Renaissance town hall, not forgetting numerous good wine bars! We can make suggestions for your evening meal where you'll discover Slovenian cuisine to be a unique mix of Balkan and Mediterranean styles.

DAY 2 - To Austrian Styria via a castle
 
 

 

  • After breakfast and, dependent on the time of your return flight home, you may use the hotel facilities.

  • At this time, we will take any orders for any wines you can't fit in your case! These will be shipped over to you to be enjoyed at home and maybe share with your friends.

  • Afterwards, we'll transfer you to your chosen departure airport. 

  • Of course, you could choose to extend your stay to include a city break in either Ljubljana or Zagreb. Or why not spend some time at Slovenia's best known tourist destination - Lake Bled?

  • We can arrange accommodation for you and get you to your next location. All part of the service!


DAY 3 - Homeward Bound?

IN A NUTSHELL

  • 2 nights in 3*/4* hotels with breakfast

  • 4 wine venues, including tastings of around 30 wines.

  • 2 meals - 1 lunch, 1 dinner

  • Airport pick up and drop off

  • Fully escorted by W.S.I. Tour Managers.

  • Option to extend stay

  • After a leisurely breakfast, we'll leave Maribor for just a short drive through the Slovene countryside to award winning Dveri Pax at Jarenina Manor, a beautifully renovated 450-years-old castle. 

  • Here in their wonderful purposely built tasting room we will taste a variety of wines which have won a host of prestigious prizes and are rapidly garnering international acclaim.

  • After a short drive into Styria, the greenest region of Austria, we enjoy lunch at a Buschenschank. This is a tavern where growers serve their own wines without having to pay any gastronomy license fees. A selection of cold meats, local bean salad with radish in pumpkin seed oil, homemade breads and cheeses will be served.

  • Our first Austrian destination is Skoff Original, run by Walter, who is the fourth generation of the family to manage their winery. He is an outstanding wine maker who produces a vast range of wines from his Classic, matured in stainless steel tanks to his Royal, made from hand-picked grapes from the best slopes and matured in new barriques, not forgetting his sparkling and dessert wines. Weather permitting we will have a brief tour of the vineyards.

  • When we tear ourselves away from Skoff it'll be to visit the Weingut Georgiberg estate, where the vines grow on gentle slopes, surrounded by green forests and quiet ponds. This estate is famous for its many first class red wines and its Blue Moscato sparkling wine (a rarity for Austria). Dinner will be served at a loal quality restaurant, perhaps on a sun terrace if the weather is kind!

  • Just minutes from here is our night's accommodation, which enjoys magnificent views across the South Styrian countryside.
