Herbal & Mineral

Located in Snežatno in the Goriška Brda zone of Slovenia, near the border of Italy, Štekar winery is known for producing wines in the traditional manner, with extended skin contact and little or no sulphur added. The hilly rugged terrain is marked with monuments to both world wars.

This wine takes its name from Jure’s great grandfather and is a pure version of hand-harvested Sauvignonasse (used to be called Tocai). The wine is full and deep on the pallet with ripe fruit, herbs, and dynamic minerality, with a very long finish.

You can pair this wine with a variety of cuisines, from brothy Asian-inspired dishes, to steak and potatoes.

About the Winery

Štekar

The Štekar family has been growing grapes in Goriska Brda since 1985. With 6 acres of vines planted in the stunning hills of western Slovenia, along with cherry orchards, Jure Štekar has committed to make wine the way his grandfather Emil taught his father: respecting tradition and avoiding invasive technologies.

Certified organic since 2006, Jure likes to play with long macerations, spontaneous fermentations and tiny SO2 amounts. His goal is to produce genuine wines that tell the story of his land and family.
