Do you love wine and chilli? Now you have the possibility to try Slovenian Chilli Wine. The beginnings of this unique wine combination stretch back to 2014, when Matic Vizjak, the creator of the wine, was already negotiating for the sale and promotion of Chilli Wine in Cleveland, USA – for which he also received three of the best in tow of the most prestigious awards competitions in the world: Finger Lakes International Wine Competition and Great American International Wine Competition.
After nine years working abroad, Matic Vizjak returned to Slovenia and began introducing innovations on his family farm. Among them was also a special Chilli wine. The first chilli and wine combination dates back to 2014, but the wine was introduced to the public in 2015 at the Wine and Chocolate Festival in Podčetrtek. It yielded an extraordinary sales success and a lot of publicity. This was the start of the 1st Chilli Wine. Later, the Vizjak family joined forces with Winery Kolar and introduced 2016 together. It was a winning combination, which brought them prestigious international awards and the Slovenian award for the most Innovative Young Farmer 2017, awarded by the Agriculture and Forestry Chamber of Slovenia and the Association of Slovenian Rural Youth.
Today, you can choose between sweet rosé or semi-sweet white Chilli wine. Both wines are quite light, but with an exceptional chilli flavour. You can order them and get more information on the official website of Chilli Wine here.
