THREE GENERATIONS FAMILY ESTATE
Our farm is dated back into the year 1890, when our great-grandfather Peter Blažič bought the farm and dedicated it to wine- and fruit-growing. Today three generations live and work together on the farm. We are diligently pursuing the idea of being nature-friendly in both grape and wine production. In practice, this means that the biggest and most important work is done in the vineyard, where most of the quality is born, which we then carefully mature with conscientious winemaking in our wine cellar.
VINEYARDS ON THE BORDER
We are located in the heart of the Goriška Brda, in Medana, more precisely at the Plešivo micro-location, which is located on the Slovenian-Italian border. It also divides 9 hectares of exceptional locations of our vineyards, whose age goes back up to 50 years. Due to our philosophy, we depend on the vintage, but on average we produce 20-30 thousand bottles of wine each year. We grow mainly white varieties, of which the front runners are two traditional varieties: rebula (it. ribolla gialla) and sauvignonasse/ sauvignon vert (former tokaj friulano).
● Plešivo (brajda) – sauvignonasse, sauvignon, beli pinot, sivi pinot, chardonnay, cabernet sauvignon, merlot
● Medana (Kozlink) – rebula
● Biljana (Robida) – rebula, malvazija, merlot, sauvignon, sauvignonasse
IN HARMONY WITH NATURE
Our vineyards are located in the hilly landscape of the Goriška brda region, where the favorable climate between the Mediterranean and the Alps, as well as minerals rich soil in Brda, provide vines with ideal conditions for growth; and for us winemakers the possibility of producing unique wines from Brda. The vineyards are up to 50 years old, and have a deep and branched root system that allows vines to tolerate weather extremes more easily. That is why we (even in not good vintages) have a higher chance of top quality produce. The terraced vineyards are grassed. The vine is grown with a lower acre yield and nature-friendly. Most of the work is, due to terroir and our philosophy, done manually. Grapes are all hand-harvested exclusively from our vineyards, where we do not use fertilizers and herbicides. We are always trying to understand the micro-locations of the individual vineyard – by looking for the optimal balance in terms of soil, altitude, climate, variety, training, protection, yield, harvest time and vintage. Healthy and ripe grapes are the most important factor for our wine production.
OUR WINES – THREE LINES
At our family estate, where we first bottled in 1993, we follow the idea of being nature-friendly in both – grape and wine production. We produce three wine lines: fresh line (rebula, jakot, sauvignon, chardonnay, malvazija and cabernet sauvignon), matured line (Robida rebula, jakot Plešivo, sauvignon Plešivo and cabernet sauvignon) and selections (Blaž white, Blaž red and rebula selection).
