Wine Cellar in the Guard Tower, Žalec

In 2004, an offspring of the oldest grape vine in the world was planted at the guard tower next to the Church of St. Nicholas. The offspring was given the name Nikolaja. Today, you are welcome to taste and buy the best wines of the Savinja Winegrowers’ Association in the cellar of the over 400-year-old watch tower.
The entire basement area has been renovated and arranged in the medieval style. Its unique appearance is due to forged metal details and massive wooden furniture.
In the upper, so-called exhibition area you can see medicinal herbs and an exhibition about wine-growing in the Lower Savinja Valley.
The wine cellar accepts a maximum of 25 people at once and is managed by the Savinja Winegrowers’ Association.
Opening times:
The tour, tasting or renting the cellar is possible upon prior arrangement made at Žalec TIC.
