Teran is indigenous Slovenian wine produced from the sort named refošk. Its distinctive traits are special fruit bouquet, fullness of aroma, fruity characteristics, high extract and vivid, intensive colour with ruby red to carmine purple shades. It only contains 9,8 to 11,8 vol.% alcohol and it has typical higher concentration of all acids, 7 to 10 g/l. It has lactic acid (2 to 5 g/l) and higher concentrations of polyphenol substances (e.g. procyanidol) with antioxidant qualities which hinder heart and vasculatory diseases. That is why it is considered health-promoting wine.
Teran is full, thick wine, giving strength and vigour. It's the essence of the Karst - red soil, the north wind bora, sun and stamina of the local winegrower. Teran is traditionally accompanied by karst ham and other dried meat products, venison and piquant cheeses.
As well as the principal Karst wine styles, refošk and Teran (grooving on 595 hectares), there are also white varieties including malvazija, chardonnay, sauvignon, rebula, the old style vitovska grganja, white and grey pinot and the red varieties cabernet sauvignon, merlot and blue pinot.
