welcome!

Hello and welcome to Real Wine Retreats!

Join me, and Rachel Signer of Pipette Magazine for a 5-day retreat June 10th - June 14th in Slovenia.

This retreat project was born out of our dream to create a place for people passionate about natural wines, who would like to travel, feel and experience the environment where these wines are produced, meet winemakers, taste wines at their origins and really dive deeper into the lifestyle and philosophy of production.

This will be an immersive wine and culinary experience and will include daily workshops on practices applied in the vineyards to approaches that winemakers are implementing in the wine cellars. We will learn about different philosophies and schools of thought that these winemakers are applying not only to their vineyards but their daily lives. From learning how to prepare biodynamic sprays with nettles and other powerful herbs to in-depth wine tastings with hours long lunches and dinners with winemakers to a quick soak in the salt spa on the Slovenia coast, the Real Wine Retreat in Slovenia is an opportunity for you to completely unplug from your daily routine, meet likeminded natural wine lovers and dedicate time to learn more about wine in this part of the world and in the process about yourself.
