Vinorodni okoliš Vipavska dolina
Vipava Valley is second biggest wine district in Slovenia. It is placed between Trnovo plateau on the north and Karst plateau on the south. There is Nanos hill on the east and Friuli Plain and Adriatic Sea on the west. Valley used to be a sea bay in the past what we can clearly see, if we analyze the soil of the area. The soil has developed from flysch and sendstone and as such is one of the most appropriate soils for winemaking. Vipava Valley as all the other districts of Primorska Region has a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and mild winters. Even thou it is a valley it is famous as a windy region. The area is known for strong Bora wind that can reach the speed of 200 km/h. An interesting fact about the wind is that it never hurts the vines but it even makes them stronger.
