for this region?

The Podravje region is located in the Drava River valley of northeastern Slovenia, close to the Austrian border. With roughly 30,000 acres (11,000h) of vineyards, Podravje is the largest wine region in Slovenia and has twice as much land under vine as its western neighbor, Posavje. The Podravje region consistently produces some of the best wines in Slovenia.

 

The wines of Podravje are among the most prestigious in Slovenia and the region is particularly famous for its late harvest offerings. Podravje has a temperate climate with hot summers and cold winters, a result of the proximity to pannonic steppes, the Alps and the Adriatic Sea. The moderate climate and specific soils in Podravje are ideal for the production of rich, aromatic white wines.

 

The vineyards share their latitude with the famous French wine appellations of Bordeaux and Burgundy. In Podravje, the sun shines an average of over 2000 hours per year. The high number of sunshine hours received during the growing season Read more »

  • Kogl Auxerrois Mea Culpa 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Slightly effervescent in the glass. Similar in acidity and crispness to the Sauvignon Blancs I've had. The palate was a bit off-putting at first, but mellowed out after some time in the glass. I attribute this to being in a stelvin-capped bottle. It needed to open up a bit. Definitely young and in need of settling down. Once mellowed, palate had... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    I absolutely loved this. I can see why it won gold in the 2007 San Francisco International wine competition. This was a BIG hit at a recent wine tasting BBQ at my house. Very fruity with a perfect sugar / bitter combination. Excellent for a summer wine. Read More
