Colour of the wine grapes are a base for the colour of the wine and judging colour is the first step in tasting a wine.
Dolenjska region is one of the vineyard regions in Slovenia and known for the red wine named Cviček. One of the Slovenian national treasures is a 400-year-old grapevine, said to be the world's oldest.
Slovenian wines are among the best wines in the world, but because they are hard to find outside Slovenia they are not well known. "Most of what is produced is consumed by Slovenians, whose per capita consumption of over 60 liters ranks fourth worldwide. Currently, only about 5 percent is exported."

Behind the scene : how this panorama was made
Dean (vthawaii.com) sent me a shirt which was beer dyed - interesting colour and cool. That is a T-shirt I wear on the pano - that person on the pano is me. As the half of the pano is macro - the lense was only about 2 cm from grapes, I needed good DOF. That is why I set aperture to minimum (32). Because of the small input of the light into the lense a strange rainbow like flare has appeared - the whole spectrum of colours. I left it in purpose.
