Our winemaking procedures are based on expertise, experience and tradition. Due to our state of the art winemaking equipment and traditional winemaking procedures inside the restored historic arched cellars from the 17th and 18th centuries, our wines mature to their highest possible quality. Maturing wines are mainly kept in barrels and 225-liter barrique barrels made of oak. Our principal goal is to tender wines full in flavour and with a natural aroma, and to maintain the character of each vintage and the profile of the variety. We try not to overemphasize the level of alcohol harmony, and strive to ensure the pleasant acidity so typical of the Jeruzalem and Svetinje region.
To cut a long story short: enjoy our unique wines yourself and stand convinced. In any case, an extra glass cannot do any harm.
