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 the Breg vineyard in Brda, Slovenia. The vines are up to 50 years old, at 250 meters and exposed to the east. Loam, slate and sandstone (Opoka) make up the myriad of soils. Manual harvest. Fermentation with maceration for 14 days in large conical oak barrels. Indigenous yeasts. A total of 27 months in French barrels, only 30% of which are new.
