Slovak wine growers and wine producers are calling on local wine lovers to choose Slovak wines over foreign ones during the upcoming holiday season as the sale of Slovak wine has fallen to the lowest level in a decade. This is because the COVID-19 pandemic has not only closed restaurants but has also cancelled several wine tasting events.
“At stake is the future of viticulture and wine production in Slovakia,” writes the Guild of Winegrowers and Winemakers of Slovakia, as cited by the TASR newswire. “The key is the shopping behaviour of consumers and their habits.”
By regularly purchasing Slovak wines not only during Christmas, Slovak consumers will help the local economy, keep jobs in the sector, preserve vineyards, which have been decreasing every year, and compensate winegrowers and winemakers for the missing state aid.
