Goriska Brda is producing the best wines of Slovenia so you should not miss the chance to visit the one or other producer and to taste his wines. In warm weather it is great to sit outside and to enjoy the nice views. I am sure you dont leave the place without buying some nice bottles to enjoy them at home.
Dont be afraid - most probably you will not encounter language problems. Everybody speaks Italian and in general are at least the younger Slovenes quite fit in two or more foreign languages. Throughout the history have alway several languages been spoken in the area and the frontiers have changed often.
This is a great viewpoint on the ridge separating the Goriska Brda from the Soča valley. On clear days you may see from here the Adriatic Sea with the towns Aquileia and Grado and even the Dolomites.
A road and a network of great hiking paths has been set up with support of the European Union. It was a hot spot in the Isonzo battles under WW 1 it was in the focus of many other conflicts as well. Now this area is peaceful and since Schengen even the long discussed border between Slovenia and Italy became meaningless.
