This text deals in detail only with those varieties of wines that are either autochthonous to Slovenia or are considered to be particularly suited to the microclimate, soils, and topography prevalent in individual winegrowing regions or areas. The varietal wines described in this chapter are generally judged to achieve outstanding levels of quality in Slovene viticulture and should be considered the staple and pride of wines of Slovenia.
Slovene growers cultivate a number of other varieties, used primarily for blending. The more rare varieties include the red Gamay, Malocrn, Modri (Rdeci) Plavec, Prosecco, and Zweigelt and the white Kraljevina, Ranfol, Rumeni (Beli) Plavec, and Zlahtnina.
