Wine-growing regions and districts
The regions in Slovenia where the grapevine thrives have transformed through the centuries into three units. The South-Western part of Slovenia, the wine-growing region of Primorska
, produces the most wine in Slovenia, around 40%. The entire Eastern and North-Eastern part of Slovenia is occupied by the wine-growing region of Podravje
, while the South-Eastern part, according to surface and amount of produced wine, belongs to the smallest region, the wine-growing region of Posavje
. Since there are certain differences within the regions with regard to winemaking and other geographical characteristics, the regions are subdivided into smaller wine-growing districts
, which are further subdivided into wine-growing subdistricts. All Slovenian wine-growing regions produce quality
and premium wines
. 70% of all wines produced in Slovenia belong in this category.
A region that has become famous for its special wine, cviček, offers a lot more. You should also pay attention to Bela krajina!
You should head for the tour that arouses the taste buds with white wines full of flavour with flower and fruit aromas.
The passionate wines of Primorska are produced in a region that is sunlit and blown through by the bora wind.
