The Goriška Brda are part of the geographical area of Posočje and lie along the border between Slovenia and Italy. The hilly region is divided into the western and eastern hills, as well as the Upper and Lower Brda. The Brda municipality was founded on April 4, 1994 and today it has 45 settlements. The largest settlement and the seat of the municipality is Dobrovo. It was a real treasury of nature because there is almost no plant and fruit trees that would not succeed. Here cherries, apricots, peaches and of course vines grow perfectly.

Wine has been cultivated in the Brda since ancient times, and now it has vineyards around 1800 hectares. The most famous briquettes of white wine are Rebula, Tokai, Pinot, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Red Merlot and Cabernet.

The biggest sightseeing is the lookout tower in the Drivers, the Renaissance mansion in Dobrov, the hunting lodge of the Counts of Gorizia in Vipovje from the 11th century and the Church of the Holy Cross in Kojsko which has a gallant altar from 1515 and a pleasant village Šmartno which has walls from the first half of the 16th century.
