Wine is born in the vineyard, so the choice of location is the first and most important piece of the whole mosaic. We do not save when planning a vineyard. We mostly choose southern locations with a lot of sun and bora, where we design terraces typical of us on the slopes, but each variety has its own requirements. At 11 locations we find 3 types of soil that allow us to produce several styles of wines.
Our estate and cellar:
We are the Ferjančič family from Planina nad Ajdovščino, where we have been involved in viticulture and winemaking since 1809. Here, on the Vipava hills, where the valley separates from the Karst, there are extreme conditions, but the right conditions for the vine. The marl soils that give the wines minerality, the Vipava bora wind, which contributes freshness and the Mediterranean sun, represent the terroir of the Vipava valley. In these conditions, we cannot have much, but we can have good and that is our first principle.
The natural product of grapes is vinegar, but man, with his knowledge, stopped this process in an intermediate stage, which is called wine. We produce this divine Ferjančičeva drink with respect for nature and our ancestors, but with an eye on the future. In addition, we express ourselves in our wines, so the wine is a part of us, for you!
Fresh wines – BRIGHT LABEL
This line includes fresh wines, with short maceration and maturation in stainless steel containers. They are distinguished by the purity of smell and taste, and high freshness. They are wines for everyday occasions.
Aged wines – DARK LABEL
The darker label represents more concrete, more structured wines. Harvesting at full maturity, longer maceration and aging in wooden barrels produce a long-lived wine, suitable for aging.
