Who are we?
It's not exactly proven how far in past our history of a family wine-growing goes, but we own the oldest cellar in Vipava valley from 1683. When modern times came we followed the main politics of Vipava wine-growing and we transported all grapes to the main cellar. The big break came 2009 when I finished Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana. We canceled the contract with the main cellar and stepped on our own path. Following we registered the trademark »Cultus«. While this time we renovated our vineyards with low yield system (Mono Guyot) in an old fashion way. Today we have 4 white (Pinot Blanc, Zelen, Pinela and Malvasia istriana) and 3 red (Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir) varieties. Zelen and Pinela are autochthonous plants from this region and they were first mentioned in the books around 14th century.
We are small family winemakers with 3,5 ha of vineyard. Most of the work is done by hand without big machinery. The vineyards are separated in different plots, where generations of people before us have been growing plants. We are strictly committed to our way, our wine come as they are, with no big intervention.
We love our soil and biodiversity, we see our vineyards as a factory where everything is made, no big procedure later in the cellar. We applied to be certificated with EU standard of ecological growing. Certification process will start 2020.
Wine is an object of art, its made by nature, in that way our wines are different from vintage to vintage.
