Gordia wines were created in the village of Kolomban above Ankaran, where winemaker Andrej Cep cultivates approximately 5 ha of organically certified vineyards. The name Gordia comes from the old local name for the village of Kolomban.
After quitting study of economics, Andrej returned to his home inn and took care of the kitchen in particular. As a curious and driven young man, his path took him to a sommelier course, where he got to know organically produced and macerated wines for the first time. This world fascinated him so much that he and his father decided to build a vineyard on a nearby bank.
Now Andrej produces all his wines in harmony with nature, the wines ferment spontaneously, and the vineyards are organically certified. Andrej Cep and his family started organic wine growing in 2004. Gordia wines are made without any oenological additives. All wines except for the sparkling wine are made with indigenous yeast.
