The route begins at the Maribor Tourist Information Centre, from where we set off through the city to the riverside Lent district and the Old Vine, the oldest vine in the world, where we also stop to visit the House of the Old Vine, a temple of winemaking tradition and culture.
We then cross the river via the Studenci Footbridge and continue along the bank of the Drava to Malečnik, where we begin an up-and-down ride through Vodole and Ruperče. Then comes a descent towards Vukovje, past Pernica and its lake, to Jarenina and its manor house, where we stop to visit the Dveri-Pax wine cellars.
The return route passes through Gačnik to Pesnica and through Košaški Klanec along the Šentilj road back to the Maribor Tourist Information Centre.
