Culinary experiences

Among the Virštanj vineyards at the Pri Škorcu Farm

At the Pri Škorcu farm, the  owner Janez and his son Jože will welcome you with an aperitif and  homemade pork crackling bread  (pršjača), baked by housewife Julijana.  The welcome will be accompanied by music played on the accordion by  Jože's younger brother, David.  The hosts will take you on a short walk  through the vineyards that surround their farm. Jože, who has taken over  the running of the farm and is a qualified farm engineer specialising  in viticulture, will present the cultivation of the grape vines and  types, planted across four hectares. Janez will present the family's  tradition, who, for several generations, has been involved in  viticulture. You will also find out where the name 'Pri Škorcu'  originates. On the way to the small chapel, which lies directly above  the vineyard at the farm, the views extend from Buče, Virštanj, Bistrica  ob Sotli, all the way to Croatia.   After the walk you can visit one of  the most modern wine cellars in the region. Jože and Janez will prepare  a guided wine tasting session, for which they have received numerous  awards.  For lunch you will be served homemade beef soup, roast chicken  and pork from the bread oven, as well as turkey fillet, baked potatoes,  homemade cheese štruklji (dumplings) – which for years have been a  tradition at their table –, wine sauce and home-grown salad. For dessert  you can enjoy walnut potica cake and coffee.  The price of this  experience with a tasting of three or four types of wine and lunch is 16  euros per person. If you have less time available, you can choose to  just visit the wine cellar and taste seven types of wine, which will be  accompanied by a plate of home-produced cold cuts, and bread from the  bread oven, for the price of 7 euros per person.  It is also possible to  arrange other experiences and dishes (stews) therefore the prices above  are only for information and can be adjusted to accommodate your wishes  and the extent of your order.
