Description

VITICULTURE
Stajerska is a hilly, predominantly white wine area in north-eastern Slovenia, bordering Austria and Hungary. Befitting its location it has a rich and varied history, with styles and varieties both of itself and of its neighbours. It is here that Matija Žerjav – known as Matic to his friends – farms nine hectares of old, organic family vineyards and makes wine in a cellar dating back to 1852. “We work only with what nature gives us,” says Matic, “so no chemicals in our wines.” These are pure, vibrant, honest expressions of time and place from one of Slovenia’s most exciting young talents.
Matic chooses to farm his 9 hectares of land using all organic and biodynamic methods, prefering these methods because he firmly believes this is how wine should be made (he is not interested in the fact that is it fashipbale to do so!). He wants his children to be able to play in the vineyard and someday, should they choose, he would be happy to see them follow in his footsteps and farm the same land, hills, and valleys.
There are nine varieties planted on nine hectares in Stajerska, and typical for the region the focus is on white varieties: principally Sipon (aka Furmint), Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling.
