Vin Slovenia


Winemaking in Slovenia existed long before the Romans introduced winemaking to France, Germany and Spain; since the time of the Celts and Illyrian tribes. It's no wonder then that Slovenia has such a rich wine making history and in excess of 28,000 wineries, producing upward of 80 million litres of wine annually from its 22,300 hectares of vineyards. Roughly 75% of that production is taken up with white wine. Almost all of the wine produced in Slovenia is consumed domestically. Slovenian vineyards are located in the very centre of the European wine-growing belt. The belt of locations ideal for vineyards is similar to those in areas such as Burgundy in France, and the interlinked influences of the climate and the soil allow Slovenia to have a greater diversity in its wine offerings. No less than 52 vine varieties grow here: Rebula, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Malvazija, Zelen, Pinela, and Pikolit red wines, such as Merlot, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, Teran, Refosk.



The Goriška Brda region, Slovenia's "Tuscany", has the highest yield per hectare of medals and awards of all Slovenian wine growing areas. Bordering Italy, "brda" simply means hills; which, prone to erosion means that most vineyards are terraced. Although not in direct contact with the coast the climate is Mediterranean, with higher rainfall and moderately hot summers.
