    Bela Krajina Part 2: A Vineyard Lunch

    May 31, 2019 in Slovenia ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Leaving Semič behind, we drove on to nearby Metlika for lunch and wine tasting at Šuklje Family Vineyards. This truly is a family business: founded in the 1840s by Matija Šuklje , it is run by his descendants. We enjoyed a gourmet meal with food and wines sourced on the estate itself, prepared by daughter Katya (who holds a PhD in winemaking) and served by daughter-in-law Katya (yes, two Katya Šukljes). It was a beautiful setting and a beautiful meal.
    By the way, there is a 2nd great-uncle Matija Šuklje in Myj's family tree, from the same area, born at about the right time. We didn't establish whether there is a relation, but Myj likes to think so.
