Who are we?
TILIA ESTATE is a private estate in the Vipava Valley, led by Matjaž Lemut, an internationally acclaimed expert in the field of viticulture and wine making.
HOUSE OF PINOTS
Producing extraordinary wines and bringing them closer to our costumers for whom wine represents a part of their personal culture has always been paramount to what we do.
Wine should reflect grape quality, creativity and precision of production. It should also establish communication with those who drink it.
We believe our fundamental mission is the production of pinots; thus, under the slogan HOUSE OF PINOTS, we strive to compete with the world’s greatest masters in this category.
TILIA ESTATE has been with you since 1996.
The TILIA ESTATE winery was founded by Melita and Matjaž Lemut in 1996 in Potoče, Vipava Valley. The brand’s name comes from the house companions linden trees, which connect the story of the winery all the way back to its beginning. The image of the linden tree is at once a symbol of Slovene independence and of a period in which our vision of being an independent wine grower was born. Thus to this very day, the silhouette of the linden tree growing in the first vineyard we planted figures on every wine bottle we produce.
Conventional wine growing tailored to individual wine styles.
Our vineyards cover 10 hectares of exceptional positions along the Vipava Valley. We grow varieties of pinot noir and pinot gris, merlot, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon, chardonnay and yellow muscat. We uphold the ideas of conventional viticulture and adapt them to individual wine styles. Our primary goal is maintaining constant quality with the smallest possible variation between the vintages. The basic principles of our wine growing technologies are balanced growth, low yields and minimised use of pesticides.
