Marjan “was the key to the success of the Goriška Brda region”, when at the age of 20, he took over the family winery from 1860 and “changed the profile of the region and raised it to the first level nationally and internationally” , according to Decanter magazine. Brda has the prerogative of a fantastic terroir, where the Alps join hands with the Mediterranean, with “flysch” soils of limestone marl, the famous Opoka. Marjan is a force of nature, and with organically grown grapes, she creates wines of immense authenticity and minerality, totally unmissable for terroir explorers.
Pinot Noir from the terroir of Brda, Slovenia. The vines are 23 years old, at 250 meters and exposed to the south and east. Loam, slate and sandstone make up the myriad of soils. Manual harvest. Fermentation with 14 maceration in stainless steel tanks. Indigenous yeasts. A total aging of 24 months, 12 months in conical oak barrels with a capacity of 2,500, and 12 months in French barrels.
