Food & Wine Tasting at Fužine Castle – Ljubljana, Central Slovenia
July 4, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 11:30 pm
This rich food and wine tasting event will take place in the beautiful Renaissance castle of Fužine, which occupies a charming and quiet location along the Ljubljanica River. Not only will you be able to enjoy the inspiring atmosphere of the castle, but also get to taste more than 110 wines and other Slovenian culinary specialties. All accompanied by music that will heighten your summer vibes.
There’ll be food provided by top culinary establishments such as restaurants Debeluh, Gostilna pri Lojzetu – Dvorec Zemono, Vander, Resje, and Trattoria Da Majda from Gorizia in Italy. You’ll also get to try some of the best home-made cheeses in Slovenia, produced by cheese-maker Orešnik.
Known in Slovenia as Brike v mestu s prijateljicami (literally translated to ‘Women from Brda in town with friends’), the event is organised by the Women & Wine Association of Slovenia and Italy. It’s a voluntary and independent society that oversees the organization and implementation of wine, gastronomic, cultural, and charity events. It consists of winemakers, winegrowers, and women who are involved with wine and Slovenian products. The purpose of the society is to nurture the wine drinking culture, and spread Goriška Brda’s cultural heritage, particularly its food and wine, throughout Slovenia and beyond.
Their event ‘Brike v mestu s prijateljicami’ is undoubtedly the flagship of the association’s endeavours, and has become extremely popular among people from Ljubljana, Slovenia, and visitors to the country.
