10 Day Untold Story: Wine & Food of Slovenia
A gloriously gorgeous country of alpine lakes and rolling green valleys, Slovenia is starting to step onto the world stage as a top-flight destination for food and wine. Heavily influenced by history and landscape, the culinary tradition here combines the refined flavors of the Habsburg aristocrat and the hearty fare of the mountain shepherd, all partnered with unique reds and whites. (And since each meal is served with a generous helping of breathtaking natural scenery, make sure you get a table by the window.)

This culinary-minded tour begins in Ljubljana, the Slovenian capital, with a privately guided walking tour that will introduce you to the charming city and its unique food scene, including everything from high-end fare to comfort food. Later, head to Kartuzija Pleterje, a Carthusian monastery, on your way to Bizeljsko to tour the fascinating stone-cut Repnice Wine Cellars and a private wine tasting. After exploring the beautiful Vintgar Gorge, a special treat awaits in the resort town of Bled; kremšnita, a chantilly-and-custard cake, served overlooking the lake from atop Bled Castle. Next, visit the picturesque Soca Valley (named for the incredible turquoise river that runs through it) for a five-course lunch at Hiša Franko, famed for its sophisticated take on local cuisine. In the shadow of the Julian Alps, learn about Slovenian honey (and taste some yourself) from a local beekeeper near Banovci, then visit the Alpine Dairy Museum before two full days of private tastings in the wine regions of Ptuj, Jeruzalem, and Maribor, home of the Dveri Pax winery. Finally, return to Ljubljana following the course of the Mur, stopping in at the mills along the way to sample pumpkin oil before a delightful three-course lunch.
