Belica Estate Hotel Goriska Brda

 
 
INTRODUCTION

The Belica Estate and winery is a must for anyone who wants to experience first hand the quality of Slovenian wines direct from the people making them! The outstanding food, the high quality rooms and the wonderful location at the heart of beautiful Goriska Brda wine growing region provide the ideal complement. An outstanding experience all round.

 

LOCATION

The Goriska Brda wine growing region tucked into a hilly enclave overlooking Italian Friuli is one of Slovenia's best kept secrets and the Belica Estate in the lovely village of Medana is one of the jewels in its crown. Like most of the villages of the Brda, Medana is a charming old stone hilltop village. It is also home to some of Slovenia's best wineries and it seems as if the entire population of the place has dedicated their life to the production, appreciation and sale of wine. The views of the surrounding countryside from Medana are wonderful and just a few kilometres away is the "capital" of the Brda - Dobrovo, with is imposing castle. From the Goriska Brda it is an easy day trip to Alps or Adriatic with the Italian Adriatic and the Slovenian Julian Alps each just 40km. The Soca River Valley and Karst wine growing region are two other major attractions in easy reach. Daytrips to Ljubljana, world famous caves at Postiojna and Venice are all easily possible.
