“I want you to feel the terroir in the wine: the salinity of the Adriatic Sea and the freshness of the Julian Alps.” Matjaž Četrtič, winemaker
We try to understand every vine site and its micro-climate to see which one is best suited
for a certain variety; choosing optimum locations and yields and best harvest time. This is how we can grow the best grapes and turn them into unique wines in such a spontaneous and natural way.
Our wines are superb in style & technique and have a very personal,
unique note as well, reflecting our love for nature and our passion for wines
and winemaking. They are simply special.
Today the Ferdinand wine house is led by Matjaž Četrtič, an agronomist who wanted
to become a wine-maker from an early age. He brought a family wine growing tradition
back to life from the times when his great grandfather was making wine very successfully.
You will find Ferdinand wines in the unique Brda region, nestled between the Adriatic sea, the European Alps and the Italian Friuli, where rolling hills are warmed by the Mediterranean sun during the day and cooled by Alpine breezes at night.
The marl Brda soil – “opoka” – provides full-bodied, mineral wines.
Using sensitive cellar technology we do our very best to preserve these
unique natural conditions in our wines.
