PODČETRTEK AMON HOMESTEAD
Feel the harmony with nature that will sharpen your senses and calm your mind.
RUSTIC STYLE, ORGANIC FOOD AND HOMELY RECIPES
For the pampering of all senses, set off on a culinary journey to the Amon homestead. The rustic style of its decoration is reminiscent of a wine cellar and the equipment also stems from the family’s winegrowing and winemaking heritage. They offer dishes made according to old family recipes and place great emphasis on the preparation of healthy organic ingredients. The Amon farm has been awarded the organic farming certificate, so that their chefs can use home-grown ingredients, and homemade produce can be purchased from their small shop called Pri babici (Grandma’s shoppe).
The food prepared in their kitchen is strictly seasonal and the dishes are made according to traditional recipes. They are famous for their mushroom soup and roux soup, their pâtés and cured meats are very tasty, too. The specialty of the house is ‘vinolada’, a jam made of wine and fruit, and you will certainly lick your fingers after tasting their venison, lamb, duck and chicken dishes, roasted over an open wood fire in the brick oven for a truly special flavour. Their culinary achievements that are well above average have earned them numerous prizes and awards at culinary and catering competitions, among them the Slovenian ‘Tourist Carnation’ and the Maison de Qualité (House of Quality) awards.
Guided tasting of exceptional wines
The Amon family company is the oldest family-owned winemaking company in Slovenia, producing and bottling top quality wines from the Šmarje-Virštajn sub-region.

They are proud to be able to offer without exception their latest vintage as well as numerous archive wines they stock. Tastings can be complemented with cold snacks, and all wines from their portfolio are available for purchase from their small shop – Pri babici or Grandma’s shoppe.
