The Producer

About Sanctum

In the mid-12th century French Carthusian monks settled in this northeast region of Slovenia and planted it with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The Podkubovšek family, starting with Vlado and his son, Marko, has always cherished and been proud of this local heritage, hence the fact that all of their wines are made in a traditional style, where the vines and the microclimate speak for themselves. All of the grapes are strictly hand-picked on steep marl-rich slopes of up to 45°, and vinified with minimal intervention in the winemaking process. - Sanctum

With its Mediterranean climate, diverse terroir, and proximity to the sea, Primorje offers ideal conditions for cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Malvazija Istarska and Teran. 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 Primorje 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 Croatia's coastal charm.
