Description of the experience

Haloze is famous for its unspoiled nature, traditional delicacies and fine wine. While wandering about colorful Haloze hills, you can fill up your picnic basket with local delicacies at local farms. At a marvelous lookout spot Gorce in Podlehnik, you can enjoy all the delicacies in the basket and taste excellent local wine next to the progeny of the oldest vine in the world and amidst vineyards that yielded the oldest wine – Zlata trta or the Golden vine – in Slovenia. In autumn and winter, you can order a basket of delicacies to be delivered to your home. Well refreshed, you can then see the Baroque-style Church of St. Barbara, the Museum of Viticulture and the Ethnographic Museum, the educational path, the Baroque-style Church of the Holy Trinity and do some recreation at the picturesque Deženski ribnik fish pond, which you may optionally complement with a culinary experience.
