Salajnica sa čvarcima, made of the finest meat, and then a tasty snack of home produced ham and horseradish are well-tried recipes for a gastronomic treat on the Salaj family estate.

Nakon ukusnog zalogaja uvijek godi i dobar napitak.After a delicious bite to eat, a good drink is always welcome.Svaka čast svim čarobnjacima za vino, ali prazne bi nam bile čaše da da nema Salajevog vina. Congratulations to all wine-making wizards, but our glasses would be empty if it were not for the Salajs’ wine. Kuhano vino, crno i bijelo, nezaobilazni su dio adventske ponude.Mulled wine, both red and white, are an essential part of Advent.Poželite li se ugrijati čajem, posebno pripreman od 7 vrsta čajeva i najzahtjevnije goste oduševljava okusom i mirisom.
