The Pikasi wines – boutique wines with tradition.
Slovenia is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It is located in the very center of the European wine-growing belt. This magical corner of Europe is a highly varied geographical area.
Not surprisingly its climate mirrors its varied terrain with a unique blend of mild Mediterranean and continental Alpine temperatures that produce some very special grapes. The small, boutique, family-based vineyards are mainly concentrated on terraces in the higher areas where the excellent soil allows both white and red varieties to be cultivated as well as a number of rarities to tempt any connoisseur.
Also the result of the mixture of the Mediterranean, continental and alpine climates, tradition and knowledge is a unique wine of world reoun, made in old family cellars. The Pikasi wines from three wine-growing regions with 14 wine-growing districts are often ranked among the best in the world with regard to quality. Due to the differences in soil, climate, and cellaring methods, each wine-growing region has its own selection of varieties.
Wine and food matching is the process of pairing food dishes with wine to enhance the dining experience. In many cultures, wine has had a long history of being a staple at the dinner table and in some ways both the winemaking and culinary traditions of a region will have evolved together over the years. Rather than following a set of rules, local cuisines were paired simply with local wines. The modern “art” of food pairings is a relatively recent phenomenon, fostering an industry of books and media with guidelines for pairings of particular foods and wine.
