Boris’s tip: One of most intersting red cuve in all carst region. Full bodied red wine.
Our red house blend combines five varieties: the cosmopolitans Cabernet Sauvignon (the largest share) and Merlot, local Refosco, Barbera from Piedmont via the Vipava Valley (where it is now at home), and the central European variety Blaufränkisch, historically present in the region but later driven out and now being reintroduced by some winemakers.
