The regions in Slovenia where the grapevine thrives have transformed through the centuries into three units. The South-Western part of Slovenia, the wine-growing region of Primorska, produces the most wine in Slovenia, around 40 %. The entire Eastern and North-Eastern part of Slovenia is occupied by the wine-growing region of Podravje, while the South-Eastern part, according to surface and amount of produced wine, belongs to the smallest region, the wine-growing region of Posavje. Since there are certain differences within the regions with regard to winemaking and other geographical characteristics, the regions are subdivided into smaller wine-growing districts, which are further subdivided into wine-growing subdistricts. All Slovenian wine-growing regions produce quality and premium wines. 70 % of all wines produced in Slovenia belong in this category.Source: http://www.slovenia.info
