The extraordinary position of the villa, built in the style of a manor house, at the entrance to the Bizeljsko wine region, just 10 km from Brežice and the Ljubljana-Zagreb motorway, speaks of the importance of the building itself, and offers complete privacy to those who want to fully adopt the way of life of a wine region.
Istenič Villa and its beautiful surroundings have views over the top of the hill, dominated by the wineries. The foundations were laid in 1740, and it was completely renovated in December 2010. The former home of the wealthy and influential Janežič family came into the possession of Janez Istenič in 2006, and then acquired new importance in the form of a renovated cellar filled with the finest sparkling wines.
