Several years ago while enjoying ourselves in the later hours of the Ljubljana Wine Festival, we ran into a former boss of ours, who had apparently been rather thirsty that evening. We made polite conversation and she eventually insisted that we follow her to the table of her favourite vineyard. We did as we were told, and were duly rewarded with a fairly pricy bottle of Traminec featuring a nondescript yellow label. Months later we finally opened the bottle and discovered that it was indeed some of the best wine we had ever had, but were later disheartened to find that the bottle had been discarded before we could make a note of the vineyard from which it came.
Why did we tell you this story? From here you can probably figure out that it ends with us feeling like a child on Christmas morning when we first visited the Pečnik farm and caught sight of that same yellow label, which by the way has been the recipient of several medals at regional wine fairs. Aside from the awarding-winning wines it also ticks all the usual boxes: friendly hosts, delicious homemade food and beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
