Primorje Wine

Goriška brda wine district in the Primorje Region: The Slovene word Brda means hills and that is the simplest description of the Brda area: a very picturesque region of low rounded hills in the western part of Slovenia bordering Italy. If it weren’t for the high mountains in the far distance you would mistaken this area for the rolling hills of Tuscany. The soils of the area are a loose crumbly shale and sandstone adjacent to a rising mountain belt that is common in the Alpine region of Europe. The hills are very prone to erosion, so most of the vineyards must be terraced. The climate is Mediterranean although the area has no direct contact with the coast. There is the plateau of river Soča between the Brda region and the Adriatic Sea, which is only 20 km away. Higher hills in the north protect the region against north winds and the cold. Wine production in this area has existed in this region since the time of the Celts and Illyrians tribes, long before the Romans would introduce winemaking Read more »

  • Movia Ribolla Gialla 2008


    Deep yellow, golden, bright, consistent. Notes of peaches, green apple and lemon zest, herbs, rosemary. The mouth has a great body, freshness and tasty notes work together, than closing notes of iodine and sulfur. Only for this wine after a late harvest the grapes are de-stemmed by hand and placed in new oak barrels with custom caps. Fermentatio... Read More

    I bet you had no idea they make wine in... Slovenia!
