Bužinel winery

Winemaking and producing top quality wine

Vintners’ society called Brajda

The Bužinel family have a long tradition of winemaking, grandfather Karlo first started producing wine in the mid-sixties and began supplying restaurants in Ljubljana and Domžale. In 1985, together with a few other wine producers from the Brda region, they established a vintners’ society called Brajda. Brajda’s aim was for Brda to be recognised as an area dedicated to winemaking and producing top quality wines. 

Today, that vision has been fulfilled and Brda is now firmly established as one of Slovenia’s most popular wine regions. From their 10-hectare vineyard the family produces a variety of different wines, including arlo (sparkling wine from 50% Chardonnay, 30% Rebula, 20% Blue Pinot), Rebula (100% Rebula), Cvetko (100% Tokaj), Elvis White (50% Chardonnay, 25% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Rebula), Sapca (a white Cuvée matured 10 months in oak barrels) and a Rebula ice wine that’s been named one of the best in the world.

When you arrive at Bužinel you will be greeted by the warmest of smiles and instantly made to feel welcome. With many years experience in the hospitality industry the Bužinel family pride themselves on giving their guests the very best dining experience they have to offer. Three generations actively work throughout all areas of the business, one of whom will always be in the restaurant to greet guests and ensure that they have all they need. They enjoy nothing more than seeing their guests relaxed and satisfied. 

The restaurant exclusively serves seafood from the Adriatic Sea, and dishes are presented with freshly picked vegetables and salads all grown on the surrounding hillside, which means their menu changes frequently to follow the seasons and support the local producers. All deserts are homemade – be sure to try their ice cream and chocolate soufflé. Situated just a few hundred metres from the Italian border, the restaurant terrace boasts spectacular views across the Brda region. Rooms are available and you can stay in one of six comfortable doubles, where a self-service breakfast of quality local produce is included.
