Melania Trump is the first immigrant First Lady since 1825 and it appears her hometown is VERY proud of her! In fact, they have created a special edition wine in dedication to her!
Take a look at this special edition “First Lady” wine:

Here’s more from Decanter.com:
“Slovenian producers near to the town where the new US First Lady, Melania Trump, grew up have released a wine in her honour and hope it can help them promote the area’s work with the Blaufränkisch grape variety.
First Lady wine went on sale in the circular cellar at Sevnica Castle in Slovenia and the first 300 bottles sold out in three days.
Another 2,000 bottles of the Blaufränkisch wine are ready for sale in the 12th century castle’s gift shop and the town centre’s tourist office.
Melania Trump, who this year became US First Lady after the election of her husband Donald Trump as president, has nothing to do with the wine other than she grew up in the small industrial town – then part of Yugoslavia – before becoming a model. Her name was Melanija Knavs.
Made by four local winemakers and priced at €27.90, First Lady wine is twice as expensive as the shop’s other premium Blaufränkisch wines – usually sold under the grape’s local name, Modra Frankinja.
Other products in the First Lady collection include salami made from a rare breed of local pig (Krškopoljc), chocolates and beauty creams.
Rok said that he wasn’t deterred by reports that Melania hired Slovenian law firm Pirc Musar & Partnerji to deter local entrepreneurs from cashing in on her name and image last year.
‘We have good wine, we have the best salamis and we have other products that are very good for the area; we shouldn’t be afraid or feel ashamed of offering them to a wider audience.’”
What an amazing story!!! We’re so happy to see her being honored by her small hometown.
