Prekmurje wine region

Prekmurje is found in the far northeast corner of Slovenia, wedged between the borders with Austria and Hungary, and much of the winemaking activity here takes place in Lendava and Goričko. The landscapes are quite breathtaking, with forests and rolling hills covering much of the countryside, while the pace of life is noticeably slower and more relaxed than most other places in the country. When it comes to wine, dry and semi-dry white wines are most typical, with Laški Rizling (Italian Reisling) the most widely produced, followed by Chardonnay, Sauvignon and Renski Rizling, as well as Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Kerner, Rumeni Muškat (Yellow Muscat) and Traminec (Traminer), while red wine production only amounts to some 3% of the total.

This district is notable for the number of younger winemakers trying new methods or rediscovering old ones. In addition to its burgeoning wine scene, Prekmurje is often regarded as the friendliest and most welcoming destination in Slovenia, and any visit here is guaranteed to be met with lots warm of smiles and copious amounts of local cuisine.
