Timeless stories. More than wine.

WINE STORIES 2022

We are looking for JRE wine

We are looking for the wine that embodies the winemaker himself, represents the environment in which it was grown and the grape variety from which it originated. We are looking for the wine that can present the beauty of Slovenian winemaking in one glass. We are looking for the wine that can change the sommelier's mind with the first sip and then represent a link between the sommelier of a top restaurant and the winemaker. We are looking for the wine and winemaker who represent the solid values of quality, work and life. We are looking for the JRE wine.

The stories of our wines combine tremendous courage, expertise and passion.

About Wine stories

Wine stories are the stories of talent and passion that connect and carry the voice of the quality of Slovenia throughout Europe. Every year, the JRE-Slovenija Association, 19 representatives of fine cuisine, together with Nova KBM, other partners and professional support, weave the story of first-class winemakers and select 6 top wines, which we equip in an exclusive package.

Great wine, the best partnership

Wine Stories is a premium partnership project between Nova KBM and JRE-Slovenia. It is not a competition but a simple storytelling project with a great social responsibility impact. It is a story that we are developing with respect for the mission of wine creators in cooperation with wine expert Robert Gorjak from the Belvin Wine School, and project experts - sommeliers of JRE-Slovenia

Six united in the One

The selection of wines follows the goal of the most comprehensive presentation of Slovenian wine-growing regions and educating of the general public. We attach a great importance to the promotion of all key building blocks of gastronomy and Slovenia as an exceptional wine-growing and culinary region.

In 2022, we are looking for a ‘culinary friendly’ wine

We are looking for a wine that pairs well with multiple author dishes in fine cuisine and at the same time characterizes the style of your winery. We invite you to submit your selection for Wine Stories 2022 through a short presentation.
