Slovenia is home to a stunning variety of natural wines, including rare age-worthy whites cherished by gourmets. Winemaking appeared in Slovenia before the Roman times. The Celtic and Illyrian tribes started growing grapes in the 4–5th century BC. Currently, Slovenia has three main regions famous for their wine-producing traditions: the Drava (Podravje), Lower Sava (Posavje), and Littoral (Primorska) areas. Meanwhile, Littoral is the most renown wine-manufacturing region in Slovenia. Seductive red wines can be found in the prominent Goriska Brda district. The winemaker Ales Kristancic has been producing here such international varieties as cabernet sauvignon, merlot, and pinot noir for the last twenty years. The nearby Vipava Valley lies in the intersection of warm Mediterranean and cool Alpine climates. This mixture is a perfect ground for producing crisp and aromatic white wines by Batic and Burja—the top organic producer of the Littoral region.
