  • Focus 1 : Slovenia

    The history of Slovenian wine is closely linked to communism. As it was the only wine consumed and recognized in Western Europe during this period, the producers took advantage of this monopoly to develop their vineyards, their techniques and to upgrade their wines.
    The areas stretch from the Adriatic Sea to the Pannonian plain, in hilly foothills, on land suitable for wine growing.
    From Podravje to the region of Riesling and Furmint, to the White Plavec of Posavje, passing through the robust reds of Primorska, you will discover all the potential of Slovenian wines.

    This small country wedged between Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia has much to offer you. The caves of Skocjan, the Lake of bled and Mount Triglav (the highest point of the country): you will be amazed by the amazing nature of the country.
    But you will also fall under the charm of its picturesque cities, you will stroll through the cobbled streets of the capital Ljublajana, you will visit the old town of Maribor and you will enjoy the sunset on the Venetian port of Piran.

    Discover the great and unsuspected wines of Slovenia!

    Focus 2 : Wine regions

    The Primorska:

    Under the influence of the Adriatic Sea and the Alps, taste the variety of Primorska wines. In the only region where reds have a real place, you will appreciate the different styles in these wines. Made from Bordeaux grapes, but marked by a Friulian (Italian) style, you will taste red wines combining power and elegance.
    You will also find white wines, often dry and aromatic, they are mainly made with the Ribolla gialla grape variety.

    The Podravje:

    Following the river Sava you will arrive in the most important wine-growing region of Slovenia but also the most nothernly section.
    Producing 90% of the white wines, here Laski rizling (riesling) and Sipon (Furmint) are kings.
    In recent years, international grape varieties have also emerged: chardonnay, sauvignon blanc, pinot gris and blanc. In this cold climate region, whites express good acidity and often have low alcohol content.
    You will taste the most prized wines of the region, the Ranina (Austrian Bouvier) and the Diseci Traminec (Gewurtztraminer), but you could also succumb to subtle liqueur wines or original ice wines (wines from ripe grapes, naturally frozen).

    The Prosavje:

    In the smallest wine-growing region, where the French influence is strong on winemaking, you can taste wines that are light and fresh, especially the Rumeni Plavec blanc, the specialty of the region.
    You will also find another regional wine, more unusual the Cvisek, this rosé that is closely similar to its neighbour and competitor the Austrian Schlicher.
