Matija Vertovec was the first person to write about wine-making, vineyards, and wine cellars in the Slovenian language, when he published his book Vinoreja (“The Art of Winegrowing”) on the subject in 1844.
In his memoriam the Vipava valley tourism created a round trail, 18km long, easy in nature, that leads through rich wineyards, heritage of Matija Vertovec. You will enjoy a pleasent hike through Vipava valley during which you will reach the top of Ostri vrh hill, the highest point of the hike with gorgeus views on the valley. Along the trail you can also observe natural and cultural heritage sites and sites with fossilised remains.
The trail is well marked and equipped with numerous information boards. On one part, the trail joins the Vipava Valley Wine Road, that is connecting the winemakers of the region. The trail passes a few of them, and you are welcome to visit them.
