One of the three wine-growing regions in Slovenia in the east of the country on the borders to Austria (southern Styria) and Hungary. The name means "Drauland". It lies between the rivers Mura (Mur) and Drava (Drau) with the wine-growing centre Maribor (Marburg). In this town there is an allegedly 400 year old vine (see Žametovka). One of the most important Slovenian wine routes also begins in the old town centre. The Podravje wine-growing region is divided into two wine regions: Stajerska Slovenija with 8,685 hectares (Haloze, Ljutomer-Ormoz, Maribor, Ptuj-Srednje Slovenske Gorice, Radgona-Kapela and Smarje-Virstanj) and Prekmurje with 965 hectares (Lendavske Gorice-Goricko). This is a total of 9,650 hectares of vineyards.
