Their younger wines are found in the Vila Marija range, while older wines are found in the black label Movia range, which also includes dessert styles. In addition, they produce sparkling wines and grappa.  Read less

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. Fermentation begins in the berries themselves, which gradually release the wine. After eight months of maturing, at full moon, the wine is gravity racked into bottles, no added sulphur, no filtration, no pressing.

This unfiltered white is made in Slovenia, from Ribolla Gialla fruit grown both in Italy and in Slovenia. Plump with quince, pears, and honey, this is a dry wine that drinks well today, but we're certain it will benefit from a few years of aging.
