When you think of top wine-producing countries in Europe, Slovenia doesn't immediately jump to mind, but all that is about to change.
The country shares borders with Italy and Austria and its fantastic white wines have much in common with its neighbours showing freshness, elegance and purity of fruit flavour.
Puklavec wineries Gomila range is the perfect introduction to Slovenian wine, offering lots of fruit and local character at a very affordable price.
The Puklavec family owned the estate before the advent of socialism when ownership transferred to the state.
Following the collapse of the iron curtain, the family grabbed the opportunity to buy back the vineyards and start all over again, installing local vigneron, Mitja Herga, to make the wines. The rest, as they say, is history.
