Excelent Wines, Beautiful Nature and Cultural Heritage throughout the Posavje Wine region of Slovenia
The wine-growing region of Posavje has been overlooked in comparison with two other Slovenian wine-growing regions, until recently. The reproach that this area produces wines of lower quality is a thing of the past. Several years of efforts by winemakers, including good promotional campaigns, brought the well- deserved recognition and popularity to these wines. The Posavje region in south-eastern Slovenia in the direction towards Croatia, where red wine predominates, is divided into several districts, namely as follows:
Bizeljsko-Sremič – Known for its sparkling wine and acidic white wines.
Dolenjska region – Famous for its light red colour, “Cviček” is a blend of red (Žametovka) and white (Kraljevina) wine varieties.
Bela Krajina – Known for red wines made of Blue Franconian and Yellow Muscat.
Other varieties, found in the Posavje region : Pinot blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Gamay, Pinot noir, Neuburger, Bouvier, Chasselas Rouge, Rhine Riesling, St. Laurent, Furmint, Pinot gris, Gewürztraminer and Zweigelt.
