Vinakoper – PRIMORJE REGION
The hills surrounding the Adriatic port city of Koper are covered with grape vines, a testament to the long tradition of wine making in the region. Some five hundred hectares of these vineyards belong to Vinakoper, a highly regarded local producer of fine wines founded in 1947. Though somewhat larger than other Slovenian wine producers represented here, Vinakoper still maintains the highest standards throughout its production. Vinakoper’s diverse catalogue of wines garnered over thirty international medals last year alone, including seven golds and a Grand Prix.
With the warm breezes that blow off the Adriatic and the fertile soil that nourishes the grapes, Vinakoper occupies one of the prime growing locations in the world. It offers a wide range of reds and whites suitable for almost any taste. The high quality wines it makes are known throughout Slovenia as some of the best available. As a result, most of Vinakoper’s wine is earmarked for domestic sale – only a small fraction of the production is available to us for importation.
