We are advocates of sustainable development; therefore all Derenda’s varieties of single vineyard wines are considered biologically grown. Not only grape harvesting but every single task in vineyards is done by hand and respectfully. The vines get their strength from the incredibly mineral-rich and unique red loamy soil called “Terra Rossa”, characteristic only for percolating and sun-kissed Karst.
One bottle of wine is made from only one grapevine. The wines have rounded fruitiness and softness of tannins and they may have a long life ahead, but still retain youth and freshness. They are characterized by fullness and pleasantness, which is achieved at low alcohol levels.
Pairing with food: It goes well with sausages and cured meats and even fatty meat dishes.
