A nothing special Cabernet-Merlot from Vinska Klet Goriška Brda. This bottle is not even featured on their website. Served to us at Egoist in Ljubljana, a Lounge Bar without website. Boring.

Cvicek (Cviček) is a typical, somewhat weird, sour wine mix from Slovenia. Vinska Klet Krško is supposedly making a very good one, though I don't really like any of them. Served at home. A gift, of course.
"Cviček is a synonym for the Dolenjska region and Slovenia, a true ''wine specialty'' which embodies and presents all the qualities of its land of origin - Dolenjska. Cviček p.t.p. is made from the reddish, red and white grape varieties produced in the winegrowing district of Dolenjska. The largest producers of cvièek are organised in cooperative Konzorcij cviček, z.o.o."

Cabernet Sauvignon Chile Seal Label from Valle Central in Chile, bottled in Ostrau, Germany by WSK Ostrau and sold in supermarkets all over the world. Good wine for really no money. Bottle was showing off infowein.de website, which is pretty good and useful. It was served to us in a private apartment, of course.

Mavrud is a typical and quite famous sort of red wine from Southern part of Bulgaria. This was a very good bottle of a 2003 Special Reserve made by Assenovgrad winery. They took the liberty of taking mavrud.com domain name for their website. I smell a trademark issue coming up. It was served to us in Manastirska Magernitsa in Sofia.

Halozan (Haložan) Cuvée has recently been re-branded, together with the whole image of Ptujska Klet winery. Pollus is now the new name that their wines are known for. Halozan is a young and fresh blend of white wines that is often mixed with sparkling mineral water. It was served to us in Operna Klet in Ljubljana. Twice :)
