One of Slovenia's biggest and best sparkling wine producers, Istenič has a vinska klet (wine cellar) in the hamlet of Stara Vas, surrounded by an emerald-green lawn. Stop in to sample a few bubbly varieties (the Prestige extra brut is the pick, but Desiree is the big seller) alongside some charcuterie (€4 to €7).

Tastings with an included cellar tour can be arranged for groups of 10 or more with an advance booking; they cost according to the number of wine samples (between €3 and €14 per person).

There is also stylish accommodation here with rooms in the Istenič Villa starting from €75.
