Lately there is a lot of talking about food self-sufficiency, and there is something interesting you should know about Slovenia and self-sufficiency... We don't produce even a gram of sugar but we are completely self-sufficient in wine production.
In an average season we produce slightly more than 100% of our consumption. It breaks down into 70% white wine, 27% red wine and the remaining 3% were rosé and sparkling wines.
In other words, out of 52 different sorts of vines cultivated in Slovenia, 37 are white and 15 red. The statistic shows that the average Slovene drinks around 40 liters of wine in a year.
After writing a blog in Slovenian language for 10 years I have finally come to my sense and started writing one in English as well.
