Famous sparkling wine at Istenic Penine & Jelenov greben/Deer reef and Kumrovec
We will pick you up after breakfast at your hotel or apartment at 9 AM (or so) and will drive 1 hour NorthWest from Zagreb to ethno village, the Memorial Museum of Marshal Tito which was founded in 1953. The most extensive restoration and reconstruction works of “Staro selo”, took place in the period from 1979 – 1985.
Today, ethno-village Kumrovec is most traditional interior in Croatia, that depicts the authentic look of Zagorje village in the early 20th century, in 40 restored buildings of traditional architecture we can see where Marshal Tito was borned and lived his early years. When finished we will cross the border of Slovenia to visit the undiscovered gem of Slovenian vine making industry. The small town of Bizeljsko where Istenič family for 40 years grow and create some of the best sparkling wines in Slovenia.
The town of Bizeljsko was not always known as such. This name was reserved for an entire region of several villages and hamlets. In 1968 the family Istenič bought an abandoned farmhouse and vineyard and produced their ﬁrst sparkling wine using the traditional method. Since then Janez Istenič laid the foundations for one of Slovenia’s largest houses of sparkling wines using the traditional method, and today the permanent stock of aging wines totals 500,000 bottles. The numerous prizes and awards won over the years testify to the quality of Istenič sparkling wines.
After wine tasting we will drive for few minutes to famous ranch with deers called Deer Reef.
Here you will feed the deers and when you get hungry the lunch with local specialties will be served. Depending of your prefference, you can choose to visit chocolate shop or kraft beer pub.
When finished you will visit one of the first pharmacies in Europe and head back to Zagreb.
