More press for two of Slovenia’s premiere wineries, Simcic and Movia from the western Goriska brda district, from noted wine writer James Suckling in Asia Tatler, where he notes “The Five Can’t-Miss Wines of Slovenia“.
Tiny Slovenia makes some unique wines, particularly on its western border with Italy, where the same grapes as in Italy’s Friuli region, including the popular ribolla gialla (known as rebula in Slovenia), are used. Two wineries stand out—Simcic and Movia. They make idiosyncratic wines from biodynamically grown grapes. Many, even the whites, must be decanted because they have natural sediment.
