The farm is run by Borut Blažič who is the third generation of winemakers. His farm dates back to 1890 when his great-grandfather Peter Blažič bought the farm and dedicated it to wine- and fruit-growing. Today three generations live and work together on the farm. They diligently pursue the idea of being nature-friendly in both grape and wine production. In practice, this means that the biggest and most important work is done in the vineyard, where most of the quality is born, which they then carefully mature with conscientious winemaking in their wine cellar.

As Borut says “The wine continues the story that we set in the vineyard“. The main characteristic of wines produced (among which they are especially proud of the traditional Brda varieties: Rebula -or Ribolla in Italian, and Sauvignonasse), due to the nature-friendly way of producing grapes and turning them into wine, are extremely characterful and varietal wines that are truly and irreplaceable theirs.

  • The Rebula Selekcija is the result of a week-long maceration, fully ripened grapes and five years of ageing in large oak barrels, it boasts a deep amber and orange colour. On the nose is very complex - ripe, rich and varied, reminiscent of dried apricots, dried flowers and spices. Great balance of tannin and acidity and long, full and very mineral taste.
  • Blaž rdeče (Blaž Noir) is a variety of merlot which is blended with cabernet sauvignon to create their most prestigious red wine. The Blaž rdeče is only produced in the best vintage years and is a highly exclusive product. It is of rich and deep ruby colour with red and violet shades. The aroma is complex and rich –with overripe berries and plums in the foreground, and the scent of spices and dark chocolate in the background. It has a bold and proud body with velvety tannins and a long-lasting fruity aftertaste. The wine still carries the potential for further ageing.
  • Jakot Plešivo (the grapes are Tokaj Friulano - Jakot being Tokaj backwards!) has a sparkling and intensive golden colour. It has an intense and rich smell, reminiscent of Mediterranean flowers (mimosa and acacia), citrus and white fruit like pears, white peaches and nectarines. A hint of mown grass and a fresh touch of used oak barrels round the scent into a harmonious whole. The scent of the Brda soil and a gentle scent of milky caramel that comes to light when the wine begins to breathe. The wine is dry, soft and mineral, fresh has intense flavours and a long aftertaste, and last but not least, full-bodied with elegant harmony and balance.
