DECEMBER VINTAGE IN SHORTS
Vintage on December 2nd 2015 took place in an unusual fashion. Air temperature was just above 15 degrees Celsius so seven of our hot-blooded guys harvested the grapes of Blaufrankish variety for berry selection, wearing merely their shorts and T-shirts. 1000 Blaufrankisch vines were intended for the harvest. Almost 300 kilograms of dry grape berries were harvested. In the cellar, more than 120 liters of must came from the wine press. Its sugar level was measured to be as high as 187 Oe.
DECANTER: GOLD, SILVER AND BRONZE
Once you overcome the sensation that you can, as a small winemaker, attend the big competition, you are tempted to try it once more. Not only for that particular reason, but also to get the confirmation that your first two appraisals were not coincidental. Therefore, in 2015 we sent a sample to the Decanter World Wine Awards to be evaluated. Since our specialties are Ice wines, we have again decided to send the Ice wine, namely Yellow Muscat of the year 2011 - different production.
20TH QUEEN OF WINE OF SLOVENIA
On January 8th, as a wine sponsors, we began our mutual path with the 20th jubilee Queen of Wine of Slovenia, Sara Sadler. For her own Queen’s Wines she chose the wines from our cellar: Laški Riesling 2009, sweet Ice wine, and semi-sweet Sauvignon 2015.
As the queen wrote: “cheers and God bless”.
