The Municipality of Brda (; (スロベニア語:Občina Brda), (イタリア語:Comune di Collio)) is a municipality in western Slovenia. It is located in the Slovenian Littoral region, extending from the Italian border to the Soča River. It is bounded by Sabotin Hill (609 m) to the east and Korada Hill (812 m) to the north.〔(Brda municipal site )〕
The municipality comprises the Slovenian part of the Gorizia Hills ((スロベニア語:Goriška brda), (イタリア語:Collio Goriziano)), which are one of the most important wine-producing microregions in Slovenia. It enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate and it is protected from the strong Bora wind, which frequently blows in other parts of the Slovenian Littoral.
Agriculture is an important part of the local economy: besides grapes, cherries are the most important agricultural product in the municipality, followed by apricots, pears, figs, and plums. Together with the Vipava Valley, Brda produces most of the persimmons in Slovenia. Small amounts of olive oil are also produced.
The wine varieties grown in Brda include Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot noir, Pinot gris, and Sauvignon vert.
Brda is the native land of the poet Alojz Gradnik, who was born in the village of Medana.
The people speak a distinctive Slovene dialect belonging to the Littoral dialect group.
