Slovenian wine growers annually receive several world awards also for organic wines, which is evident from the list below:
- Wine & Spirits
- FT Weekend Magazine (Financial Times)
- AWC Vienna
- San Franciso Usa

Slovenia has three wine growing regions (Primorska,Podravje, Posavje).
Slovenian regions differ as to the site, i.e. the ground, climate and human impact.
Natural conditions have a strong impact on the sensory properties of wines, so they influence the selection of vine varieties as well.
You will get familiar with the differences between wines as to the region, and by tasting local delicacies get the impression of Slovenia’s diversity despite its pocket size.
The international vine varieties popular in Slovenia:
- Cabernet franc,
- Rhein Riesling,
- Pinot grigio,
- Pinot blanc,
- Cabernet sauvignon,
Traditional and domesticated local vine sorts in Slovenia:
- Laško Riesling,
We boast the world`s oldest grape vine (over 400 years old and entered into the Guinness World Records).
We want to present Slovenia as a wine country producing quality wine, in combination with gourmet food. Slovenia is a small country, covered with numerous vineyard hills, where you can relax of every-day life and enjoy good wine and food. All the wine producers who have been included in our offer have in common that, apart from the domesticated (foreign) grape varieties, they primarily present domestic (home-grown) varieties and autochthonous wine sorts (grown only in Slovenia, original genetic material).
