We produce natural wines because we believe in nature and its processes, and our contribution is only a fraction of the cycle.
Wines that convey passion and energy
The production of natural wines requires passion, understanding, patience, knowledge and work. With the help of natural preparations and macerations that last up to 8 months, we achieve exceptional results.
Biodynamic and close to nature
As a young winemaker, I am grateful to my father Marijan, who raised our 240-year-old family tradition of winemaking on the fertile hills of Bizeljsko to a new level 30 years ago. These solid foundations allow us today to stand proudly behind our wines, which are made according to the principles of biodynamics.
We produce up to 30,000 bottles per year on 5 hectares of vineyards. We use stainless steel tanks for fresh wines and wooden barrels for longer maturation. Our wines mature in an underground wine cellar.
The production of natural wines requires passion, understanding, patience, knowledge and work. I saw it myself as a child and was there for everything from the vineyard to the bottle.
Why natural wines?
While many think that such wines are just a trend, the truth is that the methods of making natural wines are thousands of years old. This method is based on many years of experience, successes and mistakes of our ancestors who farmed in a nature-friendly way. Because we want original, authentic wines that reflect our terroir, we produce them with minimal intervention and additives, without filtration. The wines are made with love and respect for nature, and the winery is adapted to the processes in nature, the outside temperatures and the rhythm of the moon.
A natural process
The natural process follows the principles of biodynamic agriculture. It is a sustainable way of farming with biodynamic preparations. It is also our guide to the way we think and live. We maintain vitality in the vineyards with animal compost that our cattle give us. We appreciate them for this and are grateful to them.
The cattle help us to preserve the cultural landscape on the estate.
