Guerila, Vipavska Dolina Rebula (2016)
Hand-harvested and sorted in the vineyard, followed by four day maceration period and then spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts. Mildly pressed with one year maturation in 1000L old wooden barrel on the lees without stirring. Bottled without filtration and minimal SO2. Matured in bottle for at least six months.
Located in the Planina-Vipava valley, between Mediterranean and Alpine climates, Zmago Petrič carries on the traditions of his family – a family with generations of history in wine making. A proud winery covering 12 hectares, they take the local environment seriously: certified organic and biodynamic through Demeter, they treat the land like their own kid and grow predominantly indigenous varietals: zelen, pinela, and rebula along with some international varietals. By keeping crops small they they ensure the best expression of the varietals and the earth they come from.
