One of the three wine growing regions in Slovenia in the west of the country on the border with Italy. The name means "by the sea", although only a relatively small part is located on the Adriatic coast. The climate is characterized by a hot summer and an autumn with often strong thunderstorms. In addition, viticulture is also influenced by the cold north wind "Bora". The vineyards cover a total area of 8,081 hectares. The region is divided into four wine-growing areas: Gorika Brda (Gorizia Hills) with 1,992 hectares, Kras (Karst) with 753 hectares, Slovenska Istra (Slovenian Istria) with 2,331 hectares and Vipavska Dolina (Wippach Valley) with 3,005 hectares of vineyards. These are the extension of the two Italian wine regions of Carso and Collio Goriziano in Friuli, which incidentally have very similar geological and climatic conditions.

The glossary is a monumental achievement and one of the most important contributions to wine knowledge. Of all the encyclopaedias I use on the subject of wine, it is by far the most important. That was the case ten years ago and it hasn't changed since.
