* 2020 cancelled event.
The Ščurek Winery is difficult to miss: it is expecting you on the outskirts of the village Plešivo right next to the border with Italy, with a colorful pyramid made from barrels featuring its trademark – a cockroach next to a violin. That’s right, art is deeply rooted in the DNA of this winemaking family, which places special attention to the autochthonous Brda varieties. Between these walls is where the artists from the German Embassy in Slovenia look for inspiration.
“Art and culture connect and enable collaboration and understanding across political and language borders – and so does wine! I thank the wineries and the organizers of the Art Circle / International Visual Arts Festival for bringing international artists together to experience Goriška Brda’s wonderful harmony of art, lifestyle, and wine.“
