Wine varieties

Print Add to travel planner
Slovenia simply cannot disappoint wine lovers, since there is an abundance of high-quality selections of wines. From 52 types of vines, 37 are white and 15 are red. 70% white wines and 30% red wines are produced in this way. If you consider that wine-makers decide on various types of harvests (late, selection, pearl, liqueur wines), methods of maceration and treatment (for instance, sparkling wines, pearl wines, liqueur wines), then the offer of wines becomes even bigger. It is important to know that almost 70% of Slovenian wines fulfil the criteria for quality and premium wines, while the others are table wines. Considering that a significant share of the production of Slovenian wines is represented by small wine-makers who use their wines for themselves and their loved ones, the market offers quite a quality selection.
