Our roots

Since the Roman times...

Up to the end of World War II, when the Brda hills were split in two by the border between Yugoslavia and Italy, this area had known a special type of feudalism called the colonate system. Peasants had cultivated small patches of land, and wine had only been produced by 17 local castles, owned by foreign nobility.

The Goriška Brda Wine Cellar was established in 1957 as a cooperative, which is still fully owned by local wine growers. We cellar their wine, market it in Slovenia and abroad and advise them about vineyard-related work.

The wine cellar has co-shaped the economic development and the quality of life in Brda since the very beginning.

The Goriška Brda Wine Cellar is fully owned by 480 wine growers.

Vine has been present in Brda since the Roman times.

History

It all began during Young Iron Age (300 BC).

300 BC – Before the Roman invasion (Young Iron Age) the vine was already widespead in Brda (archeologists have found the rests of grape pips in the village of Golo Brdo).

100 AC – The Ancient Romans facilitated the expansion of viticulture (The vine was grown in Roman times on fruit trees. This cultivation method was preserved until the end of 19th century.) Amphoras used for wine and olive oil trade and transportation were manufactured in »Villa Rustica« mansion in the village of Neblo.

Social responsibility

Responsibility towards nature, territory, wine and people.

In our vineyards birds nest. Mother Nature is indeed our greatest ally. Our vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of integrated production of grapes. The vast majority of viticulture practices are done manually, with great attention to natural cycles and respect for their characteristics. Maintaining a clean and healthy environment is for us, living and working with nature, of quintessential importance.

Responsibility towards the TERRITORY

We preserve viticulture in Brda in all its authenticity – among the vineyards grow fruit, olive and other trees. Thus, the cultural landscape remains varied and very hospitable. Traditional know-how is passed from fathers to sons, which secures jobs in the countryside and stimulates intergenerational cooperation.

Responsibility towards WINE and PEOPLE

Wine is part of our diet, our culture and our history. It is nevertheless an alcoholic beverage and should be enjoyed responsibly. As one of the largest wine cellars in the region, we actively promote RESPONSIBLE wine drinking.
