Slovenian wines are known for their high quality and are praised in high-culinary circles, including many award-winning wines (Decanter). Due to the differences in soil, climate, and approaches to cellaring, each one has its own wine varieties. In addition to internationally established varieties like Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Cabernet and Merlot, there are also the indigenous varieties, such as Sauvignonasse, Rebula, Vitovska, Zelen and others. Unique wines registered under the EU are teran and cviček.

Slovenian wine cellars
Old traditional cellars with big oak barrels can be found throughout the country, with the need to build modern ones due to the rise in demand and technological improvements in wine production. Many wine cellars are true works of art. In Goriška Brda – Slovenia’s Tuscany, winemakers even established so-called art embassies and work with artists from all over the world to make their wine cellars as attractive and functional as can be.

Slovenian winemakers
Slovenia has a very long and extremely rich winemaking tradition that dates back to pre-Roman times. It’s a national hobby and it’s flourishing like never before. There are over 28,000 wineries which produce approx. 50-60,000 bottles a year. Some larger cooperative cellars and businesses also export wine.

Slovenian vineyards
Slovenia is home to 3 main winegrowing regions, divided into 9 smaller areas. Winegrowing locations are among the best 4% in the world. Slovenian vineyards flourish due to a bled of climates and microclimates, including the Mediterranean and continental climates. Most vineyards are located on steep slopes, which is why the majority of grape picking is done by hand. The oldest grapevine in the world is the 400-year-old vine in Maribor.
