WINE CELLAR ČETRTIČ Brda is a winegrowing region extending between the Soca river and the Friulian lowlands. On the north it passes into a mountainous area stretching into the Alps, while on the south, east and west it descends across the border into Collio, a well-known wine-making region in Italy . Our winery is located in the village Kojsko, only two kilometres from the state border. The area is very suitable for the production of high-quality white wines. Our vineyards lie on the northern margin of Brda at 150 to 300 metres above sea level. The proximity of the Alps , which are forty kilometres away, and the sea thirty kilometres away create extremely favourable climatic conditions. During the summer, the days are hot and the nights relatively cold. It is these temperature fluctuations that have a superb impact on the ripening of the grapes. The wines are full bodied, balanced and with a fruity note at the same time. Marl soil gives the wine a mineral value, while thanks to the location above sea level the wine is nicely crisp and therefore agreeable, drinkable and very durable. We cultivate 6 hectares of vineyards. All are located on terraces and mostly facing south-east. We devote much attention to wine growing, since only the best grapes give great wines. By thinning the grapes the crop is decreased by up to 50% already before ripening, so our vineyards yield from 4,000 to 6,000 kg of grapes per hectare. During ripening, we try to intervene as little as possible in the natural wine development, which is why we do not hinder fermentation and biological deacidification. White wines are left to rest on lees (own sediment) for one year. We produce sorted wine, i.e. Rebula, as well as blended wines "white" and "red" Ferdinand. Read less
