WHY DO WE REACTIVATE THE OLD VINEYARDS?

The vines of the abandoned vineyards were planted between 20 and 50 years ago – Their roots reach deep into the mineral-dense layers of the soil.

With its long roots the vine is able to get more water during dry periods and can reach the nourishing minerals deep in the mountain soil.

Even though those old plants didn’t get any attention and care for so many years they still grow some wild grapes that taste great!

That shows us that the vines are genetically very strong and that our terroir is able to provide the right circumstances for grapes to grow.

HOW DO WE REACTIVATE THE OLD VINEYARDS?

We start by stabilising the terraces to avoid any landslides. We then rebuild and renew the tripods to resurrect the vine to give the plant more stability and space to grow.

After one full year of growth we slowly start cutting back the vine using our traditional method.

Another year later the plant starts growing grapes and we can harvest for the first time.

Three to five years later we can open and enjoy a bottle of wine made from grapes which haven’t been tasted for decades

It is always magic and an honour for us to share this experience with you, the wine lover, who enjoys really great wine!

Grapes harvested by hand

We harvest all our grapes by handy so you don't have the taste of leafs and bad grapes in your wine.

Quality over Quantity

We refuse to use any industrial mass-production agricultural methods because we can make better wines with innovative methods based on ancient technics. 

Teaming up with Nature

We have had great success with our natural approach – This you can see when visiting our vineyard and taste when you drink our wines.

OUR WINES

CUVÉE ROSÉ 2019 – Our shooting star

Introducing the perfect blend of creativity and craftsmanship  resulting in a Cuvée you will love. Our first Rosé wine is made out of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Pinot Blue – it tastes like a white wine with the depth of a red. 

RIBOLLA GIALLA 2018 – Our state of art

An ancient indigenous grape grown on a 40-year-old vine makes up for the top of our current selection. The wine tastes like no other white wine – a unique aroma of the Mediterranean.

CHARDONNAY 2018 – Our Signature

Connecting the dots of historical links between France and Collio Brda. One could see this wine as the signature under a letter of appreciation to the grand French tradition.

PINOT GRIGIO 2018

This Grauburgunder or Pinot Gris rounds up our selection of this year and proves to be an essential of any wine collection.

ZALA 2018

A playful Malvasia wine, light and cheerful. Mineral and fresh light floral flavours.

 

ROSSO 2018

A pure and classic Cabernet Sauvignon that shows that this terroir could indeed also be known for great red-wines.

REVIEWS & RATINGS

"A 40-year-old vineyard is dedicated to the Ribolla Gialla cru project in Gonjace (Brda), a particularly suitable parcel that gives the wine an elegant, fine, harmonious character."
FRANCESCA FIOCCHI
Wine Journalist
"What I think about those wines? They are genuine and elegant. They are grown on the historic soil in Brda, Slovenia."
Stefano Cosma
WINE HISTORIAN
"When trying these wines you have to acknowledge that you can't get this quality when using machines and chemicals. These wines are honest, pure, clear."

WE SAY NO

No synthetic pesticides

We only use natural pest control – This helps to balance the biosphere and gives you a clean wine.

No synthetic fertilisers

Our grapes are grown naturally and don't need help from the lab – The soil and unique terroir gives us great grapes already.

No added sugar

We drink the wine ourselves and we don't want to have a headache the next day because of added sugar in the wine.

“Making great wines requires an expertise handed down in a long tradition. A great name from a fabulous terroir where we, wine-producers, are taking care of a small part of our planet yet have a duty to show the world that it is possible to sustainably cultivate the land we have been given.”
