Where The Wines Come From

Stajerska

Stajerska, located in the northeastern part of Slovenia, is a region with a rich winemaking heritage that is increasingly embracing natural winemaking practices. Situated between the Pohorje Mountains and the Drava River, Stajerska benefits from a continental climate and diverse terroir, making it ideal for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as ҆ipon (Furmint), ŇĹametovka, and Ranina. Winemakers here are dedicated to sustainable viticulture, employing organic and biodynamic farming methods to nurture the vines and preserve the health of the land. In the cellar, minimal intervention is paramount, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the true expression of the grapes and terroir to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Stajerska are a reflection of the region's pristine beauty and rich winemaking tradition, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of Slovenia's picturesque countryside.
