Why Visit Slovenia?

Slovenia may not be the first European country that springs to mind for a wine tasting holiday. However, the country has a long viticultural history, and its unique wines are gradually being recognised on the global winemaking stage. It’s an exciting time to take a wine tasting holiday to Slovenia. It is also one of Europe’s most exciting new culinary destinations, with a food culture that focuses on the abundance of local produce and farm-to-fork dining. Beside fantastic wine and food, Slovenia is well-known for being green: both in terms of its beautiful natural landscape and its sustainability credentials.

Slovenia’s wine growing regions produce an impressive diversity of wines. From full-bodied reds to fresh, aromatic whites; light sparkling wines to sweet dessert wines. Local winemakers proudly champion the country’s indigenous grape varieties. Special wines to look out for are Cviček, a red and white blend, with a low alcohol level and Teran, an intense ruby red wine made from Refošk grapes grown in the red-soiled Karst region. For the best introduction to the unique array of Slovenian wines we recommend booking a wine tasting tour with an expert local guide.

Slovenian cuisine, like its wine, is diverse, delicious, and influenced by the varied landscape. From Alpine sheep cheese to earthy truffles; wild venison to freshwater fish. Whether you’re dining in a typical gostilna or one of the country’s Michelin-starred restaurants, there is a focus on fresh, locally produced ingredients. A food focused holiday in Slovenia is a must for any foodie.

Slovenia is one of the world’s most sustainable countries with a national commitment to responsible travel. It proudly protects its heritage, culture, and spectacular natural beauty. Here you’ll find snow-capped mountains, vast turquoise lakes, extensive cave systems and glacial valleys. There are plenty of opportunities for hiking, cycling, caving and white-water rafting. If this sounds a little too active take a leisurely boat ride on the picture-postcard Lake Bled or stroll through the cobbled streets of the charming capital of Ljubljana.
