Established by Anja Panic and Steve Burnett in Nottinghamshire, they claim to “love wine that doesn’t cost a fortune, but leaves you lost for words” and have settled on Slovenian wines to meet the objective. Both have a passion for wine and travel and would love to share this passion further. All their wines are rigorously checked and tasted before entering the market, so you know you’re never going to get a bad bottle.

Slovenia has three wine-growing regions with 14 wine-growing districts are ranked among the best in the world with regard to quality. Due to the differences in soil, climate, and cellaring methods, each wine-growing region has its own selection of varieties.  Slovenian vineyards are located in the very centre of the European wine-growing belt. The belt of locations ideal for vineyards is similar to those in areas such as Burgundy in France, and the interlinked influences of the climate and the soil allow Slovenia to have a greater diversity in its wine offerings. No less than 52 vine varieties grow here.[www.slovenia.info]

The range of wines is quite extensive including red, white, rosé, sparkling and Liqueur wines. Whilst some of the grape varities are unfamiliar and difficult to pronounce, more familiar names such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Muscat are also listed. The upside is that good tasting notes are available to guide you choices.

The website is easy to use and there is a magazine/blog which provides background information on the winemakers etc.
