We finished the second full day touring in Slovenia with a visit to Vrabči Homestead in Pliskovica, less than 10 minutes from Rencel by car, staying in the Karst region, close to the Italian border. Here we were greeted by brothers Ivo and Edi Šuc, responsible between them for production and sales and marketing respectively. Edi takes the lead on the interview, we get an introduction to the brothers, before discussing production methods and regional drinking culture. Before embarking on an epic tasting ranging from the wine that they produce for consumption in its own right and use as the base for their spirits, in all 4 wines and 10 spirits. Edi interspersing each with local flavour and insight into the traditions that the brothers are helping to preserve.
