Feel the Karst in the Eyes

Enjoy the beauty of Karst and discover its viticulture

Visit Vinakras, a winery with tradition, home of unique wines


The village Sežana, with the biggest winery on Karst named Vinakras, lies just 30 minutes of driving from Koper, in the picturesque karstic region.

There are places in the world where nature was especially creative when forming them. One of those is the Karst with unspoiled and unique natural and cultural heritage. Located in the southwestern part of the country, Karst is defined by many visitors as one of the most beautiful places in the world with a cuisine full of fresh, seasonal ingredients. Two of the most prominent products of the region (true symbols of Karst) are the famous Teran wine and the dry-cured ham – called pršut. Both are labeled with a designation of origin and have rigid standards of production. In fact all processes of preparation, must take place on the Karst Plateau.

The Vinakras Winery cooperative is a leading manufacturer of the world’s famous wine Teran. With centuries-old heritage of wine making and viticulture, its origins date back to the year 186 A.D., when a large arched cellar was made of hewed stones. Through the years, one of the most important goals of the winery was the production of excellent wines. The effort has finally paid off, since today Vinakras is certainly the leading producer of wines in the area of Kras and world’s major producer of Teran.

On a guided tour through the wine cellar, you will learn about the importance of wine in Slovene culture. At the end of the winery tour, you’ll be treated to a tasting of wines and authentic Karst cuisine – prosciutto and cheese. Following tasting, some free time is allotted before its time for return ride back to Koper.
