From New York to Sao Paulo, epicureans have been revelling in a new generation of exciting wines from one of the least expected places – Slovenia, a vintner's paradise in full renaissance.For decades, not a drop was exported and even today most of the wine is consumed locally, with each of the 2 million inhabitants drinking an average of 39 liters per year.Across more than 1,100 hectares, the winery grows Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Grigio, Welschriesling, Traminer, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Muscat and Sipon.The most precious drops are found in the archive cellar, which stores 270,000 bottles of the finest wine produced by the winery, including 24 bottles of 1956 Sauvignon.In 2014, the company was voted Slovenia's Winery of the Year, beating more than 170 other producers.But for now, P&F remains part of only a handful of Slovenian wineries that is large and successful enough to sell overseas.
