The family estate of Domaine Slapšak lies in the lush green hills of the Slovenian region of Dolenjska. Wine has been a family affair for a long time. When the head of the family, Martin, returned to his native Telče in 1988, he continued a winemaking tradition that had been nurtured by his father, grandfather, and great-grandfather before him. Martin and his wife Tanja added new vineyards and built a new wine cellar. Their vision was to make wines that would be special, different from others in the region.
