Emerging Wine Regions: Slovenia

Pastoral Slovenia

Bottlenotes latest Regional Spotlight is on Slovenia, a small country with a rich winemaking culture.

Slovenia’s climate is ideal for grape growing–its neighbors are some of the best winemaking regions in the world: Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Italy. The climate changes dramatically as you travel from north to south. The vineyards on Slovenia’s northern border with Austria survive cold chills from the Alps, while the southern regions bathe in Mediterranean sun and sea breezes. The best wines from Slovenia are white, and each of the three major wine regions has its specialties.
