Dolenjska and Bela krajina fall within the Sava wine-gowing region, one of three such regions in Slovenia. The limestone soils and sub-Alpine climate combine happily here to permit the growing mostly red grape varieties. From these come light and fresh rose wines; red wines, such as the local speciality Cviček; and white wines of high quality, including some late vintage and ice wines. You may want to follow on of the recently created wine routes, which take you through the most attractive of the vineyards areas, including those on the steep south-facing slopes above Semič; in the countryside near Metlika with its great wine making co-operative; and on the hills east of Novo mesto as well as Trebnje surroundings.

Here, and in restaurants enroute, you will have the opportunity to taste, drink, and to buy fine wines which because they are produced in small quantities are rarely found elsewhere.
