Podgorci is a panoramically picturesque village, dispersed below the south edge of the Slovenske gorice Hills, where stands the parish Church of St. Leonard (sv. Lenart). Due to its quality wine growing position, the inhabitants of the neighbouring villages planted numerous vineyards on the hill in Podgorci. So the place obtained its name Podgorci – under the hills ('pod goricami'). The crown of the wine growing tradition at Podgorci is the Festival of Wine and Local Dishes which is the most beautiful and the most important tourist event in Podgorci, within the framework of which the oldest amateur evaluation of wines in Slovenia takes place which is also famous abroad. Across Podgorci leads the Ormož Wine Tourist Road. However, besides that, at Podgorci Tourist Association you can get a leaflet ‘Podgorci’ with the wine tourist road and surroundings where the entire tourist offer is presented. .
In Podgorci there is also the Bombek Wine Ambience which is involved as an agent of top quality wines. They cooperate with world famous winegrowers such as the Čurin in Istenič Wine Growing. By arrangement, they offer tasting of wines guided by experts and they also have gift programmes. Usually these are top quality wines in authentic packaging.
Ms Cvetka Krabonja makes excellent Cvetka's fruit bread, which comprises of more than three quarters of dried fruit; flour or dough is actually served only as a binding. It is also presented in the book Bread in Slovenia ('Kruh na Slovenskem'). At the state competition and the exhibition Delicacies of Slovenian farms at Ptuj, it obtained fourteen golden awards and four statues for quality which are received only by those products which continuously maintain high quality. There you can also get a special gift programme – packaging is from natural materials and in connection with bread.
Podgorci Tourist Association marked a walking path across Podgorci which is suitable for all generations. Regular sports footwear is recommended for walking and the path which also leads to the viewing points lasts approximately one hour.
