Wine production drops as quality improves

Slovenia will this year produce 10-15% less wine than last year, mostly due to the Dolenjska wine region being strongly affected by the spring frost.

However, wine growers around the country report above-average vintage in terms of quality. Marjan Colja, director of the wine producer Vina Kras, noted that the production was close to normal in the western region of Primorska, while the Kras area had been affected by wild boars and birds. Slovenia produces 80-90 million litres of wine a year.
