SAMPLES of the best Slovak wines have been placed in the Hotel Carlton where the US summit delegates will be staying, according to the daily Pravda.
President Putin will be offered a ruby red Frankovka Modrá wine.
The winemaker, Mrva, offered six different wines for the occasion.
"I'm very happy that Frankovka Modra red wine was chosen. Cabarnet Sauvignon can be offered anywhere in the world, but Frankovka, which was drunk by the Empress Mária Terézia, is a proud representative of our country," he said.Compiled by Spectator staff from press reports
