Hiška čilija in vina (The House of Chili and Wine)

Everything at the House of Chili and Wine is well seasoned, including the names. Warm up with Hajcer, a premium grappa, and catch your breath among our romantic and undulating hills of grapes and orchards. You might even feel a tear in your eye as you take in the delightful views. This is in part due to the sheer beauty, in part due to the house specialty “nuclear chilies”, which have been known to reduce even the most courageous gourmands to tears.

Red Cheeks, Yellow Fever, and Teary Eyes are chili elixirs created from the love of experimentation and combining everything the farm produces into one. Both domestic and international awards attest to the expert production here, which is without fail both local and handmade. Try a true explosion of tastes that all developed in the estate’s gardens and orchards, and see how much your taste buds can handle.

WHAT’S BEST TO TRY

The House of Chili and Wine’s Hajcer will surely wake your taste buds up. A premium, aged grappa, with flakes of freeze-dried chili, will get your fired up for trying the wonders of spicy peppers.  The house’s Chili Trail winds you through romantic orchards of chilies, fruit, and grapevines. A tasting for the brave follows the tour – a sampling of chili sauces, pickled chilies, pumpkin oil with chili, and more. The heat is toned down by crunchy home-baked bread and a charcuterie board. Your throat will be tickled by a house favorite, the wine Celestrin, and a glass of sweet wine – Muškatin – finishes it off.

Includes: a tasting of 9 different types of products (e.g. fruit, jams, liquors, etc.) and a 30-minute experience for guests (a tour of the farm and terroir, the chance to try your hand at various farm tasks, etc.)
