Slovak winemakers call for state help

The Slovak association of wine growers and producers has asked the Agriculture Ministry for financial support in the restructuring of vineyards. "We need to have competitive vineyards - planted with a suitable variety and in suitable places to be able to produce wines of the highest quality with a protected designation of origin," reads the statement from the winegrowers. Even though there are European funds that should help, there are too many applicants for the subsidies.
