THE WINEMAKING PARADISE ON
THE SUNNY SIDE OF THE ALPS
Janez Istenič decided to produce a sparkling wine that needed to take its time. First the base wine: the vineyard must grow, the vine must mature so it bears fruit, so the grapes can be brought to the cellar and the must turn to wine, which then undergoes another fermentation in the bottle before becoming sparkling wine.
Production of sparkling wines
Another element in the high quality of Istenič sparkling wines is state-of-the-art technology, which gives optimal results in the new winery built in 1995.
The Istenič family’s production of sparkling wines broke new ground in terms of private production, since all the larger wineries were socially owned, with only one of them producing a traditional sparkling wine. Istenič were the first private company in Slovenia and in federal Yugoslavia to produce sparkling wine using the traditional method, and we later developed a successful form of wine tourism.
