Slovak wine is one’s pleasant guide in a highly cultured country. The wine reflects a thousand faces of the territory and the ever-present darker or lighter shades of unpredictable weather. Wine is a reflection of the people that created it. Wine offers familiar, yet an always fresh look and an opportunity to bond wih a country.
Slovakia masterfully produces varieties that are typical for central Europe, such as Welschrieslingand Riesling, Pálava, Moravian moscatel, Műller-Thurgau, Irsai, Aurelius, Bouvierovo hrozno, Dievčie hrozno, Feteasca regala, Neuburské, Veltlínske červené skoré, or Grűner Veltliner.
Their taste personifies a piece of our country, as well as a piece of our own skill, tradition, and soul: Devín, Milia, Noria, Dunaj, and Silvánske zelené. These wine varieties cannot be found anywhere else in the world. It is encouraging and gratifying to know that more have already lined up: Hron, Váh, and Nitra. Finally, one must not omit the tokaj varieties – Furmint, Lipovina, and Muškát žltý and their unique growing and winemaking technologies turning them into such extraordinary wines.
Maybe you know that Slovak white wine from Radošina is being served at the table of royal family in the United Kingdom.
