The Producer

About Guerila

"Located in the Planina-Vipava valley, between Mediterranean and Alpine climates, Zmago Petrič carries on the traditions of his family – a family with generations of history in wine making. A proud winery covering 12 hectares, they take the local environment seriously: certified organic and biodynamic through Demeter, they treat the land like their own kid and grow predominantly indigenous varietals: zelen, pinela, and rebula along with some international varietals. By keeping crops small they they ensure the best expression of the varietals and the earth they come from. - Savio Soares Selections"

About the Region

Vipava, Slovenia

Vipava Valley, nestled in the picturesque landscapes of Slovenia, is a hidden gem for natural winemaking. This idyllic region benefits from a unique microclimate, with warm Mediterranean influences from the Adriatic Sea and cool Alpine breezes from the nearby mountains. Indigenous grape varieties such as Zelen, Pinela, and Rebula thrive in Vipava's diverse terroir, ranging from limestone-rich soils to gravelly riverbeds. Winemakers here prioritize sustainable viticulture, practicing organic and biodynamic farming methods to cultivate grapes with a true expression of the land. In the cellar, minimal intervention is key, with spontaneous fermentations and aging in neutral vessels allowing the grapes' natural character to shine through. The resulting natural wines from Vipava are a testament to the region's pristine beauty and winemaking tradition, with their vibrant flavors, elegant textures, and a sense of place that captures the essence of Slovenia's charming countryside.
