Become a master of Vineyard Cottage Janko & Metka, situated on a vineyard hill above Otočec. Take a walk through the vineyards. Taste the wine in the cellar and enjoy the quiet nature and magnificent view on hills of Dolenjska.
Vineyard Cottages or Zidanice as they are called in Slovene are charming houses built in the vineyards on picturesque hills of Dolenjska region. In the old days Zidanice were used to store wine and as a place where vineyard master could host his closest friends.
Every vineyard cottage has to have a wine cellar and cottage Janko & Metka is no different. All guests receive the keys of the cellar and can taste our local wines during their stay.
We greet every guest with our own wine, local meat products and other homemade specialties.
