Come and take a bite of an undiscovered region in one of Europe's undiscovered gems of a country. Nestled in the West of Slovenia and straddling the North East of Italy lies Goriška Brda (the Gorizia Hills, or the Collio region in Italian - from collina, meaning hill). 

This landscape of rolling vineyards, cherry, apricot, and almond trees dotted with white churches and villages is often compared to the best of Tuscany but Brda is no ones poorer relation. This region has been ruled by four different countries in the last hundred or so years, the Austro-Hungarian empire, Italy, Yugoslavia, and now Slovenia, and, was the scene of intense combat between fascists and partisans in the second world war. It’s a beautiful area with a complex history. All of this has shaped its unique ‘Briški’ culture. 

Traditionally a poor area it’s only in recent years its staggering beauty and wonderful wines have come to wider international attention. It’s inevitable that Goriška Brda will become an increasingly popular destination for tourists, Taste With Jase is dedicated to ensuring this happens in a way that benefits the local producers and wider community and doesn’t simply benefit the few and exploit the land as so much tourism does.
