More info

The vines are grown on terraces at 80-150 metres above sea level, with exposure varying from east to south-west. Vines are between ten and twenty-five years and grow on loam soils. The vineyards benefit from a sub-Mediterranean climate with a mixture of warm sea air and the influence of cold winds from the Alps. Grapes were harvested exclusively by hand.

The different varieties were vinified separately, and spent between eight and ten days fermenting in stainless steel tanks at temperatures between 25 and 28°C. The wine then spent twelve months maturing in large oak barrels.

Klet Brda

The Klet Brda Winery is the leading producer and exporter of Slovenian bottled wine. The winery unites 400 families, who have been working together for over fifty years and have turned local winemaking into a success story.

Viticulture is the way of life in Brda - almost every family living here cultivates a small vineyard, on average 2 to 3 hectares, located on steep hillsides with no possibility of irrigation or machine work.

The Quercus wines are made a stone’s throw from the vineyards of Collio. Goriška Brda is Slovenian for Collio Goriziano, and while these hills may be divided by a political boundary, viticulturally they are one and the same.
