Šrajbarski Turn Castle
Inspired by the past

“The Klet Krško winery is located in the old castle cellar in the immediate vicinity of Šrajbarski Turn Castle and the Auersperg family mausoleum. Had it not been for this illustrious family who resided in this area from 1653 until 1903, Klet Krško’s wine cellar would not be what it is today. One man stands out in particular: Count Anton Alexander Auersperg aka Anastasius Grün possessed a shrewd business mind and a refined sensibility for culture and art, imbuing the castle’s wine cellar with a certain je ne sais quoi. At one point, the mighty vaults hosted Slovenia’s finest poet France Prešeren. Today, we draw inspiration from the castle’s storied past and the people who have left their mark on it.”

Count Anton Alexander Auersperg (1806–1876) was the owner of Šrajbarski Turn Castle, a poet and politician who left a political and cultural mark. He published several collections of poetry and translations, and after Prešeren’s death, he penned a famous obituary to him.

The Old Castle Cellar – today’s wine cellar is located in the old castle cellar from 1770. Even in days of yore, the cellar made notable wines. It is our privilege to continue this tradition.

Linija Turn – the name is an homage to Šrajbarski Turn.
