Wineries and wine cellars
The Podgorjanska and Bizeljko-sremiška wine roads, which are definitely worth exploring, cross the hills of the Brežice municipality. You have the opportunity to taste (and purchase) wines from both wine regions in the wine cellar of the Town Hall. Or you can find out which wine excites you most and head straight to the wine makers themselves!
Podgorjanska wine road
