The Oldest Vine in the World

By Linda Tancs

Do fine vines get better with age?  You can bet the answer is a resounding ‘yes’ in Maribor, Slovenia, home of the Old Vine.  Aged over 400 years, Old Vine is listed in Guinness World Records as the oldest vine in the world.  The still-producing vine is located on the frontage of Old Vine House along the Drava embankment.  Enjoy the exhibition and wine tasting room.

Slovenian Capital of Culture

By Linda Tancs

Maribor, the second largest city in Slovenia, is a 2012 European Capital of Culture.  The festivities began this past weekend with music, theatre and dance performances. The year’s events will encompass events as varied as carnival and contemporary dance.   Youth art is a particular highlight, quite fitting as Maribor will follow on this year’s cultural award as the European Youth Capital in 2013.
