Travelers can feel the Vipava pulse just by looking at its countryside. The houses are four hundred years old, with heavy pieces of stone left on the rooftops as protection against the Bora wind. The thick walls and oaken window frames were built with the desire to stand the test of time. The vines are one with the people; they taste the sweat of the vintners, and the vintners taste the wine of the vines. Many vintners in the Vipava continue to practice the traditional methods of wine production despite the difficulties in competing with the modern wine industry. Their connection with nature brings them joy and is ensuring that the soil remains pure, and that faith will never be lost; the vines will be loved for generations to come
