That's right, you heard me.
From November 22nd to the 24th over 500 wines from 150 winemakers will be presenting their latest harvest at Hotel Slon. Event information is here. Tickets are a whopping 20€, but participants get to drink more wine than old Bacchus himself can handle. Maybe I'll see you there?
Slovenia is known for its wine, producing more than enough to satisfy the locals but not quite enough to justify a massive export venture. To be fair, I'm not a wine expert but I'm slowly learning as much as I can before my next cocktail party. I can't always talk about Foucault at those things*. That would be redundant.
Anyway, I found some excellent online resources for Slovenian wine. This is a comprehensive article on Slovenian wine in general. Here is a complete webpage dedicated to Slovenia's wine culture. For the history buff, check out this short article on Slovenian viniculture through the ages.
Time to hit the books - I'll catch you guys later.
* Maybe I should mention Proust?
