Slovak wine tourism is still in its infancy

There are 187 comments on the Slovak Spectator story from Dec 4, 2011, titled Slovak wine tourism is still in its infancy. In it, Slovak Spectator reports that:

WINE has been made in the region of present-day Slovakia since ancient times but the country's 40-year totalitarian regime suppressed small, private winemakers in favour of mass production, bringing a poor reputation to this traditional skill.

Slovakia makes some very good wines. You get what you pay for. If you want the worst wine chose the cheapest. I can see that you only drink "plunk" no matter what country it comes from.

By the way Debil, "SLO" is for Slovenia - not Slovakia.

Slovak Rose wine by Mrva&Stanko won the first price at Paris, last year.
Slovak Veltliner wines are among the better wines in this region.

It's a pity that we don't have any Slovak wine imports here in Sweden. I suppose that I could become an independent "leverantör" but it's too much responsibility.

Hahaha. Even "Virginia Dare" is better than SLOvaks best. You may try and fool others, rodent, but I was a commercial vintner for a number of years. They may be the best in SLOvakia, but no comparison on the world market. Even Moldova has better. Hungary also, but not as good a quality as from Moldova.

And what tasting in Paris was this award given. I am looking at my awards as I post. Second and third place awards. Even written up in "Wine Spectator" magazine once.

To bring wines to Sweden, it might be too difficult.
As you know, how many restrictions are in Sweden.
Your wife´s connections might send you a bottle or two to try.

I doubt very much that you were ever a vintner with a statement like that. "Even Moldova"? Moldova has some the very best wines of any country. You don't know shyt apparently.

For me to try? I have been to Slovakia many, many times and I have tried several of their wines.

I will soon retire so perhaps I'll think about importing Slovak wines to Sweden for the joy of it.

As I said, it´s not easy to import wines to Sweden.
First, get in touch with relevant agencies in Sweden, inquire you will see.
As for the above Smelly, just ignore him, he knows nothing, he was a cop.

Muk,

if I may, any wine from Slovakia, just buy quality wines with special attributes.
The grapes for these wines must come from a single wine sub-region, their must-weight levels must be verified by State Agricultural & Food Inspectorate.
Here are some I would suggest to try :
Late harvest.
These are of high quality & extract, full & round, dry or semi-dry.
Ice wine.
These wines tend to be opulent, rich, very sweet & rare.
Straw wine.
These are my favorites.
Grapes are dried over a period of at least 3 months after harvest on straw or reed beds, or suspended in well aerated open spaces.
Mind you, these are very expensive wines, but worth to drink.
I do not believe any of these wines can be bought under 50 €.

Both of them are here just to insult me.

As for those wines, if you ever decided to get into business with wines, just let me know, I might be of help. I used to play with wines, even today, I have fairly good, but small stash of wines.

I noticed. A friend of yours contacted me a couple of months ago about the expression "Ani muk" and I confused you with the idiot who is using your name. Sorry. Now I know who is who.

Sorry, but I do not have any friends in here.
Mostly, there are my admirers, just like the above two though.
