About Kristian Keber

Brda, Slovenia

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.
