Zajc Cviček Slovenian Red Blend is considered the “national wine” of Slovenia, as it has tremendous historical significance. It is known as the “people’s” wine due to its easy consumption, low alcohol, and food-friendly pairings. Playful, with berry and cherry aromas and taste, the wine is light-bodied, young, fresh, and easy to drink – which is why we put it in a liter bottle for you!

About Zajc Cviček Slovenian Red Blend

Zajc Cviček Slovenian Red Blend is considered the “national wine” of Slovenia, as it has tremendous historical significance.

A pair-with-anything wine! You can get creative with Cviček, but we especially recommend pairing the wine with grilled meats, sausages – more specifically the original Slovenian “Kranjska klobasa” (traditional sausage from Kranj), hearty Slovenian soups called jota and ričet, sauerkraut (cabbage), cured/smoked meats, various stews and goulashes, buckwheat and lentil. The wine is meant to be served slightly chilled.
