Located around the Slovenian Carso, or Kras as they call it here, a place of contradictions and while his vines sit just a few miles from the Adriatic, it is also not far to the high mountains. The wines benefit from a breeze from the former and the local wind, the bora, which comes from the latter. It is a windy, wild place that provides a daunting landscape for all but the bravest of farmers, but reward comes in the form of the wonderfully distinctive local grapes Malvazija, Vitovska and Teran, which Marko believes are the only varieties that truly thrive here.
The various plots are harvested individually, often over several months. They see a brief period of skin contact and rest in old casks until ready to be bottled. They are pure, vibrant wines with a great potential to age.
