A visit to the prosciuttera is an experience hosted by the Ščuka family in the shelter of a typical Karst courtyard. The guided tour begins under the ancient mulberry tree and continues in the prosciutteria, ending with a tasting and the possibility of purchasing products.

Mulberry tree

Entering the Ščuka yard you can admire the 300 year old mulberry tree in the worldest unique shape of umbrella. We take you to the times when mulberry trees came to Karst and later had important role in silk production. At authentic Karst yard you get to know all about typical architecture elements and listen to story about stone, which is still Karst man’s the greatest inspiration.

Prosciutteria

Tour continues to prosciutteria, which is one of the rarest, where prosciuttos and other products are dried only with the help of the bora wind. Inside you get to know more about traditional prosciutto making and whole lot more secrets that were passed on from our ancestors.

Tasitng

After seeing all those Karst specialities and when suddenly your stomaches begin to make some sounds, it is time to continue to the tasting room. There you can taste our products, as well as variety of cheeses, fruit juices and wines from local producers. Groups and travelers are most welcome.
