Upon crossing the Slovenian-Croatian border, the first thing you catch sight of is a picturesque village of Dragonja spread over with vineyards, olive groves and cultivated areas are spread over.
Kmetija Mahnič Farm, located just a step away from the main road embraces you with a warm welcome serving produce, carefully grown by Nonno Gvido, Nonna Franka and Mr Adrijano all year long. The patio of their restaurant with a rustic charm gives an exceptional view across the salt pans to the sea and the nearby Kaštel village, to individuals and groups of tourist who are always made to feel settled here. Having an exquisite drink served by Ms Ingrid as well as some exceptional homemade food prepared by Nonna Franka and Mr Adrijano, many wish that the day would come to an end.
Kmetija Mahnič Farm is spread over 15 hectares of land and is home to olive plantations, orchards, vegetable fields, last but not least vineyards. The fifth Wine Queen of Slovenian Istria, Miss Kim Mahnič, is there to proudly present ten varieties that flourish in their vineyards namely, Malvasia, Refosco, white and black Burgundy, Bianchera, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Yellow Muscat, Momjan Muscat and Cipro.
