Tasting local food at osmica is a real food experience. Osmica open doors is a type of a farmers local taverna with 200-year-old tradition preserved until these days in Vipava valley and Karst region on the western part of Slovenia. Osmica takes place in the fall and spring. Follow the bouquets of ivy or fraska – the symbol of osmica. Wine-growing farmers are allowed eight days a year selling their surplus wine without paying tax. In this manner they prepare wine barrels for the new harvest. Besides local wine, you can also taste home dried meat products (prosciutto, sausage, pancetta, ham, salami), cabbage or turnip stews with a sausage, home-baked bread, desserts (potica, štruklji dumplings), and home-made alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. A real culinary treat on the Slovenian countryside!
