Boris’s tip: Great pet nat from Karst region. Very smooth and light to drink. Made with vitovska-one of 7 native varieties from Slovenia.
Pétillant Naturel is an increasingly popular style of sparkling wine with a secondary fermentation in the bottle. The result is a playful and lively wine with natural sediments. The blend of Vitovska and Istrian Malvasia reflects the growing region.
