Full description
Spend the afternoon discovering some of Trieste's best osmizas, traditional farmhouses that the region is known for. After meeting your guide in the city center, head to the countryside where you will have the opportunity to taste homemade products and local wines in a rural atmosphere. This will allow you to get better acquainted with regional culture and traditions.

Marvel at the stunning natural landscape of the Karst Plateau as you drive out into the countryside. Make your way through small traditional villages and stop at different osmizas on the way. You'll learn about the history of this Slovenian-influenced cultural tradition that dates back to the 18th century, when peasants were granted the right to sell the food and wine they made directly from their farms.  

During your visits to the various osmizas you will taste various cured meats, cheese, and eggs. You'll also sip on a range of local wines, from crisp whites like malvasia and vitovska to intense reds like terrano which reflect the properties of the iron-rich red soil of the area. At the conclusion of your experience, you will be transported back to Trieste.
