Top Secret

The hotel’s  prizes cellar has a custom-made viewing window where you can peak down at the best bottles vaulted away.

Origins

Built around 400 years ago, the striking villa was completely renovated in 2012, while preserving its historical charm. Following the war, it stood on a border between two worlds; nowadays those barriers do not exist; it stands proudly, conveying the notion that its mission was never to impose power, but to protect and serve, to help and advise. Nowadays, it tells the stories of the place, the land and its wine, food and people.

The Review

Driving from the nearby Trieste airport, a cheerful sign says “Welcome to Slovenia”, and just a few hundred yards down the road, your gaze will meet the hotel’s castle turret beckoning you towards it. Although the building is centuries old, the décor is decidedly modern, with chic contemporary pieces like the hanging chairs in the suites that gently swing on ropes descending from the ceiling.

 

Breakfast is a hearty affair, with a host of locally sourced ingredients. The surrounding vineyards are perfect for exploring by bike, which the staff will happily arrange for you. You are never too far from a wine tasting spot so ask for these to be pointed out on a map before you get peddling.

 

The terrace and pool are a great place to unwind after your excursion. Though its doors have only recently opened, the hotel has really made its culinary mark in the region. At Gredi? Avenanti, you will find the finest regioal produce served in elegant and beautifully plated dishes.
