Slovenia's wine industry reflects the successive waves of Romans, Slavic and Austro-Hungarian people that settled in this small country that borders Italy to the west, Austria to the north and Croatia to the south. throughout its long history of winemaking, Slovenia has produced wines that were regarded highly enough to supply white wines to the Habsburg Court. After World War 11, viticulture suffered as Slovenia was folded into Yugoslavia by Tito, whose central planners prized quantity over quality.

Since its independence in 1991 and membership of the EU in 2004, the situation has been reversed, and the quality is once again triumphing over quantity. Local varieties like Malvazija and Rebula (Ribollain Italy) are helping Slovenia once again to carve out a name for itself in the world of wine.
