From the foothills of the Alps to the coast of the Adriatic, Slovenia offers some of the finest and least known wines in the world. These wines have already stunned many well-traveled wine writers with their exceptional quality and virtually unknown status in the American wine community. It is our aim to introduce these fine wines to America.
We at Tri-Wines, Inc. have endeavored to offer a comprehensive yet very selective catalogue of Slovenian wines. Our line offers wines that will complement any menu and will make even the most knowledgeable customers stop and take notice. We will do our very best to provide you with a selection of wines to suit your clientele. It is our sincere hope that you will find these wines as extraordinary as we do – we know your customers will – and that you will join us in helping to acquaint America with Slovenian Premium Wines.
Why haven’t I heard about Slovenian wine before?
Well, it’s pretty simple really. Slovenia is a very small country with only two million people. Compared to most wine-exporting nations, they just don’t produce much. And what they do produce, they drink – Slovenia has the fifth highest wine consumption per capita in the world. In fact, we had to convince many of the smaller producers to export at all – they have been able to sell all of their wines domestically, with some vintages in extremely high demand.
Many Slovenians have been quite enthusiastic about our efforts to introduce Slovenian premium-quality wines to America, but after expressing this thought have quickly followed with a question: You’re not going to take too much, are you? So the short answer is simply that they’ve been keeping these fine wines for themselves – until now.
Does Slovenia have a tradition of winemaking?
Absolutely. Slovenia is home to the oldest continuously producing vine in Europe – it is over four hundred years old. Under the various governments that controlled Slovenia over the years, winemaking continued. Certainly, with the influence of winemaking cultures like the Austrians and the French, it is no surprise that Slovenian vineyards have been producing high quality wines for many, many years.
This tradition has been carried on by a new generation of private winemakers that have grown with the new freedom afforded for individual enterprise under the democratic government. These wineries have drawn on the history of Slovenian winemaking and agriculture, and the methods and technology that have been developed in the great wine producing regions of the world to create their own unique styles that rival the best wines found anywhere – some wineries have won well over one hundred medals in international competition.
