Goče, the oldest Slovenian village and cultural monument

Have you ever experienced to be at one place, eating and drinking more than 6 hours and not being bored at all?

In Goče, the oldest Slovenian village and cultural monument, situated above Vipava valley there is a family household, running by Davorin Mesesnel.

Amazed by secret narrow streets, picturesque church and more than 250 years old preserved stone houses, we walked through village to the Cejkotova home. This amazing home of Mesesnel family has been entirely renovated into tasty furnished domestic guesthouse where all meals are prepared and served by Mesesnel family.

6 course menu is accompanied by delicious wines, starting by the specialty of the house – sparkling wine.  While eating different home made karst specialties, we were invited to their fairy-ambiental wine cellar, decorated with candles and surrounded by barrels. Davorin told us that village Goče is unique also for their specially structured wine cellars with vaulted ceilings. This village has 75 wine cellars constructed in identical way as in the one we were tasting the wine.

During lunch and wine tasting we were trying sparkling wine, Rebula, Pinela, Malvazija 2005 and 2006, Cabarnet Sauvignon and later some predicat wines. Hours were running fast and we approached to evening hours and special dessert which was waiting for us. Delicious cake and štruklji (dumplings) accompanied by sweet blended combination of cabarnet sauvignon and cognac amazed us again by their inovative approach of cooking. It was already dark when Davorin invited us to a second wine cellar where we tasted pure cognac which has been more than perfect finish of best lunch-dinner in my life.  

Goče, the Slovenian cultural monument of 75 uniquely constructed wine cellars, more than 250 years old houses, village which is old for centuries and family Mesesnel with their renovated guesthouse Cejkotova home, incredible culinary achievements, dream-wine tasting, more than friendly family members ... in short unforgettable 1st class wine and culinary enjoyment.
