When the late Stanko Radikon began his stewardship of the 18 hectares of vineyards, located near the Slovenian border, he came to the conclusion that the local indigenous grape, Ribolla Gialla, needed to be treated differently to other varieties if it was to reach its full potential. Radikon set about changing his methods and pioneered the movement towards both natural and orange wines. From the specially designed bottles and the high-quality corks that avoid cork tainted wine, the production method and the taste, these wines are truly unique and an experience all wine-lovers should have.
