Worldwide Wines Offers New Entry from Slovenia to Connecticut

Puklavec & Friends Winery, the largest family-owned and operated winery in Slovenia, has officially expanded to the U.S. market and is now available in the state through Worldwide Wines in North Haven, Conn. Premium offerings include a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, as well as three wines from the “popular premium tier,” a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio blend, a Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot blend, and a Moscato. Since the 1930s, the Puklavec family has been making wines in the region of Ljutomer-Ormož, near the Austrian border of Slovenia. Prized for its mineral and lime-rich soils, this region is known for producing the best white wines in Slovenia.
