The year of Šipon · Furmint

Last automn we had a truly spectacular grape harvest. Thus our wines are now maturing gracefully in the cellar. Although fermentation is almost finished, bottling will have to wait until April.

We are especially happy to announce the first Šipon · Furmint of our winery. Over the past five years, we have been focusing on this grape variety that may be one of the oldest in Slovenia. Nowadays, no one can say exactly where its journey started. It is reckoned that the grape initially came from Georgia. Via Greece and Hungary it finally reached the Štajerska region.

The first barrel samples make us expect our Šipon · Furmint 2011 as a wine full of hearty flavor and mature fruit, but still with a wonderfully crunchy acidity. We are already curious about the final outcome!
