A Visit to the Planet’s Oldest Grapevine

This post has been moved to BobRamsak.com. (Where it will live on for another 450 years.)


  1. Every time I read something public about an ancient tree or plant I always have this uneasy feeling that some fool is going to come along and damage or destroy it. Losing what little faith in humanity I have left, I guess. It’s truly incredible (can’t think of a better word at this moment) that this vine has survived so much for so long.

  2. Wow, this is really interesting – I had no idea you could visit the world’s oldest grapevine. Very interesting story along with it, thank you for sharing!

  3. I do love a good glass of wine! I must admit I don’t know very much about wine though. Although I did do some wine tasting in a pub I worked at in the UK once…ended up getting very drunk which I don’t think was the plan haha. Interesting post.

  4. Well..I don’t drink wine but I love visiting wine yards. I also love to know the process of wine making and how the perfect grapes are picked for the same. I will definitely like to check this place out

  5. The oldest vine is in Slovenia? What?! This was a fascinating read, just my cup of tea! I love a good glass of wine, although I do prefer white over red. But, I’d love to actually see the vine and get lost in the little museum.

  6. This 400-year old vine is incredible. The stalk looks unbelievable. How long is it? There are probably a lot of wine connoisseurs who have visited this place already.

  7. It’s the first time I hear about more than 400 years old vine and it looks incredibly good. It would be great to see it if I would visit this area.

  8. Such amazing history and incredible the vine latest over 400 years through all the turmoil. It’s a shame you will never know the taste of the wine this vince produces.
