Viticulture and winemaking has existed in this region since the time of the Celts and Illyrian tribes; 5th and 4th centuries BC, long before the Romans would introduce winemaking to the lands of France, Spain and Germany. The region has a continental climate with cold, dry winters and hot summers. Winemakers in the northeastern half of the country enjoy fertile land that is prolific in high quality grapes. This is the region of Slovenia that was part of the ancient Pannonion Sea; pre-WWI it was referred to as the Carpathian Basin. The winemakers in the western part of the country enjoy continental climate tempered by the warmth of the Adriatic Sea and So?a River. The limestone subsoil and marl topsoil from the ancient dried seabed produces vibrant wines with luscious fruit and pronounced aging ability.

This small but lively country has three wine regions Podravje, Posavje and Primorje that are subdivided into smaller wine districts. Our winemakers represent the Goriska Brda district within the Primorje Wine region and the Ljutomer-Ormoz district in the eastern Podravje Wine region. The majority of the country's wine production is classified as premium (vrhunsko) wine with less than 30% classified as basic table wine (namizno vino).
