Tasting notes on the wine: 

"A traditional wine and the national drink of Slovenia, cvicek (ts-vi-check) is a speciality of the Dolenjska region! Cvicek has a long history and is produced using native varieties of both red and white grapes. Pair it with grilled sausages or just a hot dog on a hot day. This is a house wine through and through and the liter format and low alcohol (not to exceed 10 percent) makes it the perfect summer wine to enjoy chilled in a backyard or on a patio. In Minnesota we call this a porch pounder." — Sarina Garibović.
