The renaissance castle at Dobrovo hosts Vinoteka Brda. We rearranged
the old arched cellar, where once the wines of the counts Baguer
were ripen, to offer guided degustations with a presentation of
the Brda wine region.
The enotheque is located in the white castle, seen from far away;
the entry is from the courtyard down the stairs near the castle
entrance. From the Soca valley in Plave or Solkan cross the bridge
over the Soca river (direction Goriška Brda) and drive till Dobrovo.
Vinoteka Brda d.o.o. was founded in the middle of the year 2000.
The idea of a selling-promotional centre was supported by the Brda
municipality and a big part of Brda's most important winemakers,
while the choose of the cellar at Dobrovo castle was self-evident.
The Brda wine region counts 2000 ha of vineyards on marl hills on
the right side of the Soca river. This soil was 50 million years
ago still under the sea and consists of thousands of tiny layers,
created by mud and sand crawling undersea.
