My good friend Tommy who lives in NYC took some time off work to spend the summer in Slovenia at a farmhouse run by two of his friends. Last week he sent me photos of an event he produced, Vino Lopa, that was centered around wine tasting. It took place at the farmhouse, Klavze 28, and guests sampled orange wines from local producers while lounging around makeshift tables made from tires that were painted in bright colors – a cool contrast against the forest greenery. The process of making this wine is thousands of years old and the color can actually be compared to copper, made from leaving the skins on white grapes to ferment. Vino Lopa will stay up the remaining of the summer and guests of the farmhouse can have pre-dinner drinks and snacks while relaxing by the river. Sounds good right about now.
