Product reviews
The Slovenian region of Brda lies immediately to the east of Italy’s Collio region. The two denominations, in reality, comprise one contiguous quality wine zone whose terroir is rudely bisected by an international border. Today many winemakers and grapes cross the border in both directions on short journeys from vineyard to cellar. The Simcic family trace their wine making story in the region back to 1860. The aim is to respect the historic traditions of the region in both viticulture and winemaking. The vineyards are farmed organically, yields are kept low and only natural yeasts are used. The wines are divided into three distinct ranges.

Opoka is the local term for the marl mineral soil of the area. These wines are only made in the best vintages and are the product of a strict selection and represent the best of the best.

The Ribolla Gialla Opoka 2010 again from an acute selection from the estate’s oldest vines. Fermentation is in 500l oak, 50% of it from Allier and the wine undergoes a partial malolactic fermentation. Aging is 22 months in 500l oak followed by a further 18 months in bottle. Seriously complex and fresh with apple skin, bitter almond and mineral in abundance and a long life of improving yet to come. The Opoka wines are the most gloriously textured of all Marjan’s wines.
