The inhabitants of Prekmurje are well-known for their genuine hospitality and generosity, and the Passero family run one of the most welcoming destinations in the entire region. Situated in the village of Tešanovci at the edge of the lush Goričko regional park, the family homestead has sweeping views of the vineyards below and agricultural lands stretching into the horizon. In addition to a selection of mostly dry and medium dry white wines, for which Prekmurje primarily known, guests here can sit down to Passero Estate a meal of homemade local cuisine, and also purchase various pâtés, jams, fresh juices, spirits and even chocolate – the latter featuring unique tastes typical of the region, such as pumpkin seed oil, Traminer grapes and elderflowers.
Perhaps best of all, there are two spacious modern apartments available which can accommodate up to eight guests, making the estate a perfect destination for a romantic weekend getaway or a family trip, as the thermal spa and water parks of Moravske Toplice are less than 2km away.

Prekmurje wine region
Prekmurje is found in the far northeast corner of Slovenia, wedged between the borders with Austria and Hungary, and much of the winemaking activity here takes place in Lendava and Goričko. The landscapes are quite breathtaking, with forests and rolling hills covering much of the countryside, while the pace of life is noticeably slower and more relaxed than most other places in the country. When it comes to wine, dry and semi-dry white wines are most typical, with Laški Rizling (Italian Reisling) the most widely produced, followed by Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Renski Rizling, as well as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Kerner, Rumeni Muškat (Yellow Muscat) and Traminec (Traminer), while red wine production only amounts to some 3% of the total.
This district is notable for the number of younger winemakers trying new methods or rediscovering old ones. In addition to its burgeoning wine scene, Prekmurje is often regarded as the friendliest and most welcoming destination in Slovenia, and any visit here is guaranteed to be met with lots warm of smiles and copious amounts of local cuisine.
