This was a wonderful day at the Malik winery, a family owned winery in Modra. We were welcomed by one of the Malik brothers who offered a really casual and relaxed style to how they make their wines. They were generous with the wine tastings and gave us an insight into their family busiess. We also got to meet the head of the family who was so welcoming with us, and offered us a wholesome selection of meats and cheeses and just let us sip away exploring all their delicious wines, with small stories behind each one! What a perfect day, highly recommend. Also Modra has some lovely cafes near the winery that are worth exploring beforehand! Note - the tour doesn't include a visit to the actual vineyards.

Daria was a fantastic guide. She was so incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about sharing her city's history with us. She pointed out the small statues we would have missed, and gave us a fantastic and thorough overview of the city. Thank you, Daria!
