Slovenia's Podravje Wine Region

Covering the entire northeastern portion of the country, Podravje (so named for the Drava river valley) is the largest of Slovenia’s wine re- gions, and is officially subdivided into two districts: Prekmurje in the far northeastern corner, and Štajerska Slovenija everywhere else. It should be mentioned that some guides divide the region into seven districts, with names bearing excessive hyphenation that can be quite confusing even for Slovenes, so for the sake of clarity we’ve decided to stick with the official designations. Semantics aside, the region is synonymous with white wines, as they account for over 95% of out- put, and is most known for producing some world class dessert wines, including ice wine, as well as Slovenia’s first sparkling wines and fresh, dry whites that have had a penchant for collecting Decanter awards in recent years.
