The combined tourist information center and wine cellar on Vipava’s main square is probably the best place for first-time visitors to begin a day of wine tasting in the Vipava Valley.
When you enter the building the information centre is through the doors to the left and is stocked with all manner of brochures, business cards and maps, as well as an assortment of local souvenirs. On the opposite side of the hall is a small modern tasting room with around 130 wines from the region.
The knowledgeable staff will gladly make recommendations and help you plan your itinerary through the valley – if you don’t have time to visit every winery on your list, all bottles can also be purchased for prices similar to those the vineyards. In a room to the back you can watch a brief 15 minute film, which, unintentional comedy aside, will give you a good overview of the valley’s history and long-standing viticulture tradition.
