We were planting new vines
Due to unsuitable weather conditions, which were also present in the spring days, this year we started with planting significantly later than last year. This year, we will re-plant 62,000 new vines in our vineyards.
After six long years, finally conditions were perfect for an ice harvest. The vineyard named Topol in Rinčetova graba was harvested on Sunday 8th January in the early morning. Chief oenologist Mitja Herga expects about 380 liters of exceptional Chardonnay ice wine.
This year we were again a proud partner of the project Lidl’s young winemaker (Lidlov mladi vinar), organized by the company Lidl Slovenia. Goal of the project is to encourage students of viticulture and winemaking, to acquire knowledge and experience in the production and promotion of wines. The title was won by the team “Kaplja do roba” from the Biotechnical Faculty Ljubljana.
The first Šipon harvest at the Malek vineyard cottage
There was a special wine harvest this year at our old Malek vineyard cottage in the Ljutomer-Ormož hills. In a combined effort with our friends, business partners and well-known Slovenes, we managed to replant and renovate the terraced vineyard with the sort Šipon (Furmint) in 2014. Last year, the vines were pruned, but this year they yielded for the first time.
