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.
Ribolla from the terroir of Brda, in Slovenia. The vines are between 55 and 60 years old, at 250 meters and exposed to the north. Loam, slate and Opoka make up the myriad of soils. Fermentation with maceration for 8 days in 4,000 liter barrels in conical shape. Indigenous yeasts. Aged for 18 months in the same, on fine lees.
