Slovakia Wine Tours
Slovakia has seen – in record time – some dramatic changes in the rise of the quality of its wine. Large investments into state-of-the-art wineries and renovations of historic ones go hand in hand with a young generation of innovative wine makers taking over. Not that the success of Slovak wines is coming out of the blue. The wines from what is now Slovakia were famous for centuries.
Re-emerging Slovak Premium Wines
Discover with Slovakia specialist and wine connoisseur Martin Sloboda wine regions that in the times of the Austro-Hungarian Empire produced world-class wines exported to all continents and were compared to the best French wines. The incredibly fast changing wine scene of Slovakia offers exciting and unexpected surprises leaving you wonder why you don’t get to hear more about wine from Slovakia. In designing private wine tours in Slovakia we aim to rediscover the new old wine world of some of Central Europe’s best terroirs.
Indulge yourself on our private wine tours in Slovakia in a wine-quest of premium Slovak wines. You would have never thought of them few years ago and they are so easily accessible today. Although these days Slovak wine is exported worldwide, due to its smaller volumes it remains a hidden secret. You are more likely to taste a premium Slovak wine in a Michelin start restaurant in Milan, Copenhagen, New York or Marseille than to get a bottle in the usual wine shop.
Europe’s Hidden Wine Secret
Wine from Slovakia may sound for some unknown or exotic and premium wine tours of Slovakia even more so. But wine from the territory of present-day Slovakia and its picturesque wine regions have been for centuries part of the European heritage just like the famous ones of today. The wine from this region was in the past known as Hungarian, Austrian, etc. just not Slovak. On top of it, Slovakia is not a country of mass tourism. Similarly as in Switzerland, Slovakia produces fine wines in smaller quantities that are mostly enjoyed in the country itself. Slovakia keeps a low profile – lucky those who discover this little gem of a wine country.
The Slovak wines have already earned a reputation among wine professionals. At the most renowned OIV wine competitions in Europe – in Paris or Madrid, the wines from Slovakia have been for years receiving most gold medals after the host countries. And surprisingly the awarded wines come from all different wine categories. It shows just how incredibly diverse the terroirs of little Slovakia are. Where else can you get a fresh and fruity white wine, rich and intense red wine and a delicious ice wine in a single wine region? Slovak wines will always be special and niche. That’s just fine. Because the real wine lover is always on the lookout for out-of-the-ordinary, exciting wines. And that is exactly what we are offering at Martin Sloboda: Premium wine tours of Slovakia for wine enthusiasts looking for outside-the-box wine experience.
