The Ptuj wine cellar is the oldest of its kind in Slovenia: its origins are traced back to the middle Ages. Its vaults store the oldest existing wine to be produced in Slovenia, dating from 1917. A few vintages from the four years of the Second World War and before are missing, while subsequent vintages are all present in the archives. A visit to the cellar is a memorable experience.
