Abstract

The topic of this paper is a brief outline of viticulture and winemaking in Slovenia, starting from the phylloxera outburst and extending into the 1970s and partly the 1980s. The First chapter presents the general development trends, while the second chapter covers the vine and wine varieties as well as the structure of vineyards. Due to a very slow qualitative transformation in viticulture and winemaking processes, attention is paid to “self-propagated” (American) vine and wines, and the social stigma accompanying this type of wine production. In the last chapter, the example of Slovenian indigenous wine Cviček is presented as a case of the socio-political connotations. Both the wine produced from “self-propagated” vines as well as Cviček can be defined as “people’s wines”, as they were accessible to everyone and drank on every occasion, as opposed to quality wines that were dedicated to higher social strata. Wine was not a socially neutral product.
