Dear NorwichCatherine! Happy to hear you had a brilliant evening! Can't go wrong with excellent wine and ham :) Thank you so much!
We had a fantastic time wine tasting! We learnt so much but had a lot of fun doing it. We had a great group and Natasha was lots of fun, so interactive and we enjoyed every minute of it! The appetisers were delicious and we got to enjoy a couple of bottles of wine after the tasting! Would definitely recommend going :)
Dear Sophie! Super happy to hear you had a great time with Nataša and that you enjoyed the wines so much! :) Thank you!
A great evening with Boris! We learned much about local wines and enjoyed some delicious local food! Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and highly recommend!
Dear ShezzaH78! We are super happy to hear you had a great time at the tasting with Boris! Thank you so much!
Boris is passionate about wine and is very welcoming and friendly. The wine cellar is quaint and a great setting for the tasting. All local wines. Borris gives an informative and interesting intro to the history and character of each wine. Slovenian cheese and meats went down well with the wine!
Dear Fiona! Thank you for the nice comment! We are pleased to hear you had a great time at the tasting with Boris and that you enjoyed the local cheese and special kind of meat, that is quite a must, when in Slovenia :)
We just got back from our trip to Slovenia and we're still thinking fondly of the time we spent with Boris at Wine Tasting Bled. We booked for this tasting about a month in advance online, booking was very easy. They only take cash at this time, which isn't a big deal just make sure to be prepared and we were reminded of this in advance of our visit.
Our evening with Wine Tasting Bled started off with dinner at the restaurant above (which I almost regretted after seeing the amount of food as the amount of food provided during the tasting was substantial. Pro tip, eat light before you go). A thunderstorm had just set in as we were having dinner so wine tasting was a perfect way to spend a rainy night inside. The tasting program is in a wine cellar in the basement of a quaint restaurant that has been there since 1909, which means the wine cellar is also 100 years old as well!
The wines were stellar and we learned so much about the Slovenian wine-growing regions, it really was an education and made us want to come back to Slovenia to visit those wine regions we learned about. We paired wines with chocolates, cheeses and one particular pairing we really loved was with a local sausage. I won't ruin the surprise for you but there was also a very cool blind tasting experiment that was educational and fun. We also were able to purchase some of the wines we loved to take home with us.
The most fun part of the entire experience was Boris, whose passion for Slovenian wine really comes through. Getting to spend time with Boris made the entire experience worthwhile. If you're in Bled, take the time one evening to experience this unique wine cellar and tasting experience.
Dear Charity, thank you so much for such a detailed description of your wine experience. Our hearts melted as we were reading this <3 Boris is passionate about the wine and he definitely shows it, which makes it even a better experience for everyone who decides to join him at the tasting! Do come back, for a glass or two! Thank you so much!
We went to the wine tasting last evening with Boris, and we LOVED it! 7 delicious wines, appetizers and lots of interesting background stories and information from a very knowledgeable connoisseur. Boris is genuine, hilarious and so passionate about what he does! Whether you're an amateur or an expert, you'll walk away with a love for Slovenian wine!
Dear allisongee! Super happy to hear that Boris gave you such an unforgettable time and that you have enjoyed the wine selection! He is definitely sharing his love for wine among everyone! :) Thank you!
