The Posavje Wine Region

Posavje is the region where the French influence affected the local viticulture more than in any other Slovene winegrowing region; consequently, Posavje is primarily known for its blended wines. Local growers were always individualists, stubbornly growing and tending their wines in small private cellars or zidanice.

The Podravje Wine Region

Podravje, the largest of Slovenia's winegrowing regions, is divided into six winegrowing areas. The wines of the region are among the most prestigious in Slovenia; the region is particularly famous for its late harvest and other wines of special quality. Its moderate climate and specific soils are ideal for the production of rich, aromatic white wines. The German influence is the most evident in the region's cho

ice of grapes to cultivate - the best white wines of the region are similar to those grown in the Rhine and Mosel valleys but are generally more aromatic, sweeter, and stronger, thanks to the warmer climate.

The Primorska Wine Region

The name "Primorje" is derived from the Slovene words "by the sea"; only a small part of this region is actually on the coast, but its northwest-southwest valleys carry the beneficial influence of the
 Mediterranean far inland. The region is characterized by a Mediterranean climate with an occasional biting northeast wind (called burja), warm summers, and mineral-rich soils - the mix of these characteristics being different for each particular winegrowing area. There are 14,000 hectares of absolute viticultural sites  in the Primorje region, distributed over the four winegrowing areas of Brda, Vipava, Kras and Koper.

England Wine Country

Vino poznajo na otoku že več kot 2000 let. Skozi burno zgodovino osvajanj, plemenskih in vremenskih sprememb je imelo vinogradništvo svoje vzpone in padce. Bila so hladna in topla obdobja (stoletja). Vremenske spremembe v zadnjem desetletju pa so zopet pripomogle, da se je angleško vino pojavilo na svetovnem vinskem zemljevidu. Moderno vinarstvo so obudili trije ljubitelji, vizionarji, pred 65 leti, ko so v Hambeldonu in okolici posadili prve komercialne vinograde. Leta 1993 je bilo posajenih že več kot 1000 ha vinogradov. V zadnjih 20 letih pa se je spremenil okus in podnebje in proizvodnja penečih vin je postala glavna niša angleškega vinarstva. Še posebno blendi tradicionalnih in netradicionalnih lokalnih zvrst grozdja so prinesla odmeven uspeh in številne mednarodne nagrade. Na našem potovanju jih bomo spoznali, a tokrat ne bomo ostali samo pri vinih Anglije, spoznavali bomo tudi viski in pivo Irske in Škotske.
