Product description

Fresh white wines
All fresh wines are produced using the same process. At optimal ripeness, the grapes are hand-picked. Cool the grapes in chambers at 4°C for at least 1 day. Afterwards, the grapes are ground in a pestle and pressed in a press. It is important to press the grapes chilled, as this prevents various oxidations, which is important in preserving the natural aromas and color of the wine.

It is an old autochthonous variety of the Vipava valley, already described by Matija Vrtovec in the book Vinoreja. The wine has a delicate aroma of floral and fruit perception, it is richly extracted.

Native Slovenian variety. The pride of the Cigojes and the entire Vipava Valley.

Fermentation and maturation takes place in steel tanks.
