SLOVENIAN WINE ROADS

featured.apple

“We eat and drink to live! But we don’t live to eat and drink!“ That‘s what the adage says, telling us
that both wine and food are consequences of man‘s economic endeavours, a form of social cohesion
and a reflection of the immense variety of cultural creativity. That is why it is through wines
and dishes that we can recognise life styles, ordinary days and holidays, the efforts of individuals,
families and inhabitants of towns, villages and regions. Through this publication we invite you
to discover the richness of all three wine-growing regions of Slovenia, which, with its hundreds
of years of cultural entanglements, is building its modern recognisability at the junction of the
European Alps, the Mediterranean and the Pannonian Plain. It is this very junction that also gives
a special and recognisable character to all of our wines and cuisine. Our numerous, often quite
boutique and extremely natural wines, include quite a few original or autochthonous specialties,
which, along with other wines, can very quickly create unique experiences and relationships for
you. Here the path from heart to soul is a very short one... That is exactly why we are offering you
several wine routs, which will lead you through the wine-growing regions of Podravje, Posavje and
Primorska... To good people and dishes and to noble wines!

Official geographic appellations of the

wine-growing regions, wine-growing

districts and wine-growing subdistricts

in Slovenia. For easier illustration,

we have only presented some of

these in the review.
