My way of spoiling taste buds

In Slovenia, the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach. Love tastes like dishes from no less than 24 gastronomic areas and three wine-growing areas.  Local mineral waters have also always been served on Slovenian tables, and recently beers from local Slovenian microbreweries have also attracted interest. 

Wines of Slovenian origin

There are three wine-growing regions in Slovenia, known for wines that receive renowned awards globally. These include excellent original wines, typical for individual areas. If you visit the wine-growing area of the Primorska Region, you must taste Teran, in the Posavje Region taste Cviček, and in the Podravje Region taste white wine varieties, such as the Rhein Riesling and Traminec. The wine-growing regions are divided into 14 wine-growing districts, each of which has a wine road, where you can learn about the Slovenian wine-growing tradition and local specialities. Slovenia is particularly proud of some indigenous wines and wines with protected geographical indication.

The oldest vine in the world

In Maribor, the second largest Slovenian town, the oldest vine in the world has been growing for almost half a millennium. It survived times of Turkish attacks; Medieval fires; grape leaf louse infestations, which destroyed many vineyards in the past; and both world wars. Behind it you can find the Old Vine House, and other sites of the wine city are nearby as well.

Slovenia's mineral waters

Local mineral waters have been added to white wines for a long time, especially to those from the Podravje wine-growing region. The typical local drink is the “špricer,” which is half wine, half mineral water with natural carbon dioxide. Here, Radenska, the mineral water from north-eastern Slovenia, is synonymous with all sparkling water. Also try other Slovenian mineral waters and don't forget to enjoy the high-quality drinkable tap water!

Land of beer and beer-related experiences

Slovenia’s diversity is also displayed in various flavours of beer. Two large breweries operate in Slovenia, and over one hundred microbreweries are scattered all over the country. To fully experience beer-related adventures, visit the Lower Savinja Valley where vast plantations of hops are found and the brewing industry has a rich and long tradition.
