REBULA

It is called the queen of Goriška Brda. It is one of the oldest wine varieties and due to its good genetic resources one of the most prospective varieties of this wine-growing region. Rebula is character full, mineral wine with pleasant freshness. It is good for production of dry, sweet wines and excellent champagnes. We also use it to produce juice.

VINIFICATION

At full ripeness organically produced grapes are harvested by hand, then sent through a vertical destalker. Maceration 24 hours without yeast added and without temperature control. After pressing wine is held in inox vessels where it is kept for a few hours in order to calm down. Then it is transported into used 2500 l acacia barrels where spontaneous fermentation (with own yeasts) starts.

Wine ripens in acacia barrels for approximately 8 months. Then it is decanted and filled in bottles without filtration. Bottling is carried out without additional sulphur.
