The Old Vine House (Hiša Stare trte)

The Old Vine House (Hiša Stare trte)

This is the epicenter of viticulture in Maribor, Štajerska, and indeed all of Slovenia.

The world’s oldest grapevine is the very symbol of Štajerska’s winemaking tradition and the city of Maribor. It is no surprise that the Old Vine House has opened a world-class enoteca, stocked with bottles from 55 local vintners. Hear the tale of Maribor’s heroine, the world-record holder among grapevines, as well as the delicious fruit she still bears to this day. 

Learn the history of winemaking in Štajerska and marvel at Slovenia’s Wine Queens. While you’re here, check out Slovenia’s biggest mosaic floor in the enoteca, chock full of interesting imagery.

This tasting of vintages from the winemaking region of Podravje is accompanied by a delicious plate of local cheeses and bread.


The Slovenian region of Štajerska is world-renowned for its delicious young wines, and so, after touring our vineyard, we’ll pour for you a flight of 6 young glasses reflective of the terroir. We’ll also serve you up a plate of local delicacies to help you cleanse your palate in between glasses.
