We read about this as we walked by. Apparently the locals are very proud of it. I touched it for good luck.

The walk along the river is pleasant anytime. We had a picnic on benches with snacks from the bakeries. Then walk along to the old vine and the house it grows on. It had bunches of grapes hanging down when we visited. Won't be long to harvest! Well kept and worth the visit.

The Vine growing in front of the old vine house is allegedly the oldest vine in the world and still bears fruit and wine is made from the fruit. The grapes are edible.

The house is not easy to find. For a place that the locals take pride of, you would expect clear signs guiding you there! We came off-season and we nearly missed the location, it looks so boring from outside. The exhibition about the history of wine making and glasses was not so interesting in my opinion. Wine tasting is 4€... More

I was lucky to be there just before the start of festival so I could witness that this venerable wine is still producing plenty bounty. Inside the house you can not only taste a wine and buy a bottle of some fine wine but also take a look onto history of wine making in Slovenia.

I was very disappointed in the staff behavior and knowledge of wine (I'm not an expert and I expected some kind of expertise). We had to pay for a tasting that didn't give us any insight and local wines, practices nor history and the staff behaved like everything we asked was a hassle. I regretted spending time and money there.... More

Old Vine is Maribor's most visited point of interest. Over 400 years old it still bears grapes (not much, so the wine is put in small bottles). Every fall there is an Old Vine Festival taking place in front of Old Vine House (a month of festivities).
