  • Grondali – A Revitalized Homestead with a Winery in Slovenian Istria
    Slovenia | Traditional architecture, Traditional food and eating

    Abitanti, typical village in Slovenian Istria hinterland, bordering Croatia, was abandoned for twenty years. Many houses stood empty for fifty years or more. The inhabitants were left to live and work in Slovenian or Italian coastal towns or migrated to foreign countries. Traditional homestead of Grondali in the middle of the settlement was the first to be revitalised: farm buildings and yards were reconstructed, traditional viniculture reintroduced and supporting activities for sustainable agro-tourism were defined.
