Teran & prosciutto culinary adventure

The Karst, with its special climate and soil, has a magical effect on cuisine. The best of it is demonstrated in the culinary harmony between Teran wine and Karst pršut (air-dried ham). Visit the Festival of Teran and Pršut in Dutovlje near Sežana, which is organized annually in August. While in the area, discover the hidden treasures of nature at the Karst Living Museum, go for a romantic walk in the Botanical Garden in Sežana, or spend an active vacation in the Karst region.

Teran is a genuine Slovenian wine with a designated origin, produced from Refosco wine grapes. It has a recognisable aroma and taste, which distinguish the wine from all others. The dry wine, served at room temperature, goes hand in hand with meat dishes, especially with Karst pršut. The meat is dried on the bora wind and is usually aged for twelve to sixteen months. Visit the Festival of Teran and Pršut from 4th until 19th August in Dutovlje near Sežana, and try Teran from different winemakers and the best pršut in the area.

Surround yourself by nature and visit the Botanical Garden in Sežana. Its beginnings date back to the year 1848, and today the garden serves as a natural monument of national importance. Or explore the mysterious Karst in an active way:

* By bike, follow the Wheel of Culture Karst tour that connects the villages where some of the most popular poets, writers and sculptors lived and created their work.

* Visit the Karst Living Museum with its typical karst features on over 700 hectares. The museum is designated an ecologically-important area and the larger part of it is listed among the Natura 2000 sites.

* Put on your walking shoes. Go on a hiking trail or any other themed trail around the Karst. The beautiful, unique natural sights, maintained hiking trails and friendly people you meet along the way are a perfect recipe for an active retreat.
