From the earthy reds of Mediterranean Primorska, to the sweet whites of Podravje in the northeast, the limitless supply of refreshing cviček of Posavje in the southeast, and to the traditional Ljubljana wine route, which unites winemakers from all regions, the Slovenia Wine guide is intended to give only a brief overview of Slovenia’s wine industry, one of the oldest in the world and yet still, for many, an unexplored scene, including the many award-winning Decanter wines.

TOP winemakers in Slovenia have added accommodation and other services, which makes visiting them easier than ever before.

The vineyards mentioned in our new wine guide represent only a small number of the hundreds (or technically tens of thousands) of wine producers from different regions that currently operate in Slovenia, and we’ve tried our best to give a representative sampling so visitors who are unfamiliar with the country’s wine regions can gain a clearer understanding of what each has to offer. More specifically, we’ve attempted to show the unique aspects of each winery, farm, village and winemaker, in order to encourage readers to visit for themselves and taste the best Slovenian wines.
