One white wine: BRDA I inherited an old vineyard from my grandfather Roman and I decided to realize my dream in the Goriška Brda Region. The cultivated grapes are the natives: Ribolla Gialla, Tocai Friulano and Malvasia Istriana. Of course, I followed the idea Wine-Terroir and therefore the name of the wine is Brda, which is the Slovenian translation of Collio. The slopes are covered with terraced vineyards and the soil is called Opoka. I have always loved macerated wines with spontaneous fermentation, and I have been experimenting this method for years, now, Brda is the realization of it. The harvest is manual, the grapes macerate and ferment in concrete tanks, without temperature control and without the addition of selected yeasts. The maceration (grapes with stalk) lasted from 1 to 5 months( depands on the year). After the pressing, the wine ages in oak barrels for 2 years, the natural sedimentation is achieved, and the wine is bottled without being filtered.
