Slovenian winemaker of the week: Žličar winery

zlicar winery vinogradnistvo

Vinogradnistvo Žličar was established in 1976 when they planted their first 2000 vines and began producing Šipon and Laški Rizling. Today, their vine count is closer to 19,000, producing eight different varieties. The family estate prides itself on only harvesting the grapes on warm autumn days, so as to retain as much natural sugar as possible in the fruits.

The surrounding countryside and nearby Ormož hills boast some truly beautiful landscape, as well as excellent cycling and hiking paths that are a great way to absorb all the natural beauty.

What’s more, the Žličar climate with hot summers and little rainfall make ideal conditions to enjoy such outdoor pursuits. The vineyard sits close to both the Hungarian and Croatian borders, making it the perfect rest stop for those traveling further afield. Not only can you sample their excellent produce in one of their tasting sessions (available for groups up to 30 people), their wines are also available in presentation boxes which make them perfect for wedding or business gifts.
