Erzetič
The Erzetič estate is comprised of several vineyards, each with their own strengths and characteristics given by nature. The winemaker has the opportunity to seek out the most appropriate location for each wine variety. The wind blowing atop of the hill is not the same as the one in the valley, and the sun exposure for south facing vineyards verses southwest facing vineyards bring opportunity and challenge. For some vines a windy hillside proves to be the most suitable location, while others prefer the quiet and an early afternoon nap. The family jewel is the vineyard at an altitude of 300m.

The most western Slovene wine-growing region acts like a pocket between the subalpine hills and Friuli plain. Its modest soil is rich with minerals, mixing of the mountain and sea air. Carefully chosen locations lead to the cultivation of a wide range of wines of the highest quality.

Knowledge cannot be bought. The same holds true for love. We spend our whole lives learning, learning from the experience of our parents and passing the knowledge on to our children. Our path moves from generation to generation. Since 1725, our path has been linked with nature, winegrowing, and winemaking, but most of all with love for the earth and Brda region.

Each generation has its own vision, yet none of them deviates from the respect of family values, which include diligence, team work, and constant improvements of the vineyard and the wine cellar. Integration of all of the values is best noticeable at harvest (in Slovene also called - vandima), when the result of several months' work becomes the basis for a new wine story.

For some vines a windy hillside proves to be the most suitable location, while others prefer the quiet and an early afternoon nap. The family jewel is the vineyard at an altitude of 300 meters; considered one of the highest vineyards and probably one of the most beautiful vineyards in all of Brda.

For fresh wines, getting a sense of timelessness is limited to aging of wine on lees in stainless steel containers. Old experiences of flux and bottling at the right time of the moon phase in the sky are intertwined with modern knowledge and the latest equipment in which the wine ages in the most natural way possible. Both in the vineyard and in the wine cellar everything is aimed at ensuring the healthiest crop, enabling the winegrower and winemaker to translate the joy of the harvest into the essence of the wine for a happy wine drinker.

It may sound contradictory, and yet it is not: in our newest wine cellar, there are immense clay amphorae receded into the cellar’s earthen floor with just the top of the rim at the surface, much like those in which cider and wine were boiled in ancient times. It is with these Amphorae we marry ancient technique with state-of-the-art wine making.
