There are many castle challenges for the taste buds. Both fans of traditional Slovenian dishes and explorers of new flavours smile with satisfaction. Those with a sweet tooth or lovers of good coffee have an excuse to come back time and time again.
Not every castle has its own wine story
At the castle, we respect and appreciate the culture of the noble drop. We proudly nurture our ancient grapevine, carefully cultivate the Castle Vineyard, which we share with lovers of good wine, and ensure that our cellars are full of bottles of the best wines. You are invited to propose a toast in our wine cellar with premium wines.
BELPIN AND RDEČEGRAJC
Wine from the Castle Vineyard
Ljubljana is called the city of grapevines and wine. In order to revive the tradition and enrich the stories about wine and grapevines, Ljubljana Castle acquired the Castle Vineyard in 2016. It is planted with 1050 grapevines: 500 of the white variety Belpin, and 550 of the red variety Rdečegrajc. The sunny location of the vineyard on the southern slope of the Castle Hill and the professional care of the vineyard enable the production of quality wine of both varieties, which we present under the brand “Selected Castle Delights”. Cheers!
