The event entitled Ljubljana Wine Route (Ljubljanska vinska pot) marks St. Martin’s Day, when, according to Slovenian tradition, grape officially turns to wine. The event includes tastings of young wine and culinary delights served from stalls set up in front of the old city centre’s bars and restaurants.

Slovenia is a country of good wines valued for their remarkably natural tastes. The local wines may not be among the best known in the world, but they often surprise and win prestigious international awards.

The choice of Slovenian wines, either sweet or dry, can cater for all tastes and palates. The premium wine varieties, often produced by small winemakers and therefore available in limited amounts, are made using traditional methods. Slovenia has a long and rich history of wine making, which is evident, among other things, from the fact that the world’s oldest vine grows in the Slovenian city of Maribor.
