About Vinoteka Brda

There’s nothing like tasting wines in the place they were born. Nested on the top of the highest hill is Šmartno – a cosy walled medieval village, overlooking the vineyards and orchards of Goriška Brda. Here is Vinoteka Brda, run by the local David Lipovsek, who offers an ever-changing list of Brda wines from fifty producers. Around twenty labels are available by the glass, giving a chance to taste native grapes like Rebula, Malvasia Istriana, and Sauvignonasse (Friulano) in their different expressions: from sparkling to fresh to oak-aged to macerated version. The latter ones have become the signature of Brda. Local takes on international grapes are here too.

The wines are paired with great cheese and charcuterie boards and breathtaking views. Besides running Vinoteka Brda, David organizes the Brda&Friends wine festival, look out if you are there in May.
