It doesn’t matter whether you’re talking about the Slovenian town or the entire wine-growing region: Collio is always worth a visit. The surroundings of Gorizia offer an enchanting and relaxing landscape of rolling hills between the Isonzo and Judrio rivers, and are renowned for their excellent Chardonnay, Malvasia and Muller Thurgau vineyards. We recommend a visit to Venica&Venica for an excursion into the world of wine.
The village of Cormòns, the main town of the region, boasts a wonderfully idyllic atmosphere. Here you will not only find excellent restaurants, but also fantastic festivals. A Renaissance parade and various small wine-related festivities take place in September. If you visit in August, you can take part in the “Emperor’s Birthday” in honour of Franz Joseph.
You can also follow in the footsteps of the past empire in the old count’s town of Gorizia and its Slovenian sister Novia Corica. Both towns will be sharing the title of European Capital of Culture in 2025. A visit to the Slovenian municipality of Brda is highly recommended, especially in autumn. The local people serve mouth-wateringly delicious food from the orchards and vineyards of the surrounding area.
