The wine-growing areas of Slovakia are located mainly in the south at the borders Austria and Hungary, The vineyards form along these borders about a 60-kilometer-long strip and lie on the northern edge of the European wine-growing area largely on the Danube tributaries Hron (Gran), Nitra (Neutra) and Váh (Waag) around the capital Bratislava (Bratislava). It has a continental climate with hot summers and cool winters with moderate rainfall. In 2012, the vineyard covered 20,000 hectares, of which 384,000 hl of wine were produced.

Well-known wine-growing communities are Hurbanovo, Levice, Modra (with a school of viticulture), Nitra, Nove Zamky, Pezinok, Raca, Sahy, Sered, Sobota, Trnava and Zlaté Moravce. A special feature is the small area in the east, which is directly adjacent to the Hungarian Tokaj-Hegyalja. Here in the three (formerly Hungary) villages Kistoronya, Szőlõske and the Slovak part of Sátoraljaújhely a wine in the manner of Tokaj generated. After years of disputes, the two countries finally agreed in early 2003 that these wines produced within the 172-hectare area may bear the designation of origin Tokaji (for four other communities claimed by Slovakia, this was rejected by Hungary).
