What people are saying about Bratislava

Very relaxed, very authentic and very personal. Wine tasting at this local family business was the best part of our trip to Slovakia. It is clear how much passion they have for their work and they are excellent at what they do. We took the train to Pezinok from Bratislava (~€2pp return) then the bus onward to Modra (~€2pp return). At the tasting we learned all about the history of Wine in the region and all about the process of wine making, and saw round the new venue they are currently renovating in Modra. We tasted around 9 samples to compare flavours and had bread, cheese and traditional Slovak cold pork. Fedors son who lead the tasting was a lovely charismatic person who knew his craft well. We really enjoyed sipping wine and chatting to him for a couple of hours in sunny Modra. I would 100% recommend this experience, if you are in Slovakia you must come and visit!
