Haloze is one of the oldest and most traditional wine regions in Slovenia and Europe. The culture of vinegrowing dates back 2000 years, to Roman times. In the period of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, it was one of most prestigious wine regions in the Empire; from here, the wines were sold not only to Vienna, but also worldwide. The town of Ptuj, which is the center of the region and the oldest Slovenian town, was basically built on wine trade.
This small wine region is about 20 km wide. All vineyards are on the southern exposure at a high incline so most of the vineyards are terraced. Soil composition is predominantly marl or clay over marl. The vineyards extend on top vinegrowing sites, on the hills surrounding the town of Ptuj.
