On this occasion, we asked Caroline Gilby, a great connoisseur of Slovene wines, to describe our Bagueri Superior wines.

Pinot Grigio Bagueri Superior
“A bright, mid-straw gold wine with bronze tinges. It has inviting aromas of fresh-cut pear, meadow flowers, a hint of acacia and a subtle touch of oak spice. The palate delivers good intensity of juicy red apple, poached pear, and honeysuckle, supported by fine acidity and a silky finish. This is a grown-up, but elegant, modern Pinot Grigio that balances lightness and substance at the same time.” Caroline Gilby
Sauvignon Blanc Bagueri Superior
“There’s a unique style to Sauvignon Blanc grown in this corner of Europe on the green hills of Brda where Mediterranean warmth meets cool alpine breezes. This is a glowing green-gold wine with appetizing scents of green melon, fresh-cut grass, and lime zest, but this wine isn’t just about aroma, it’s vibrant and fresh to taste with lovely intensity and body. There are notes of freshly squeezed lemon, melon, elderflower and a hint of passionfruit, backed by zesty but well-balanced acidity then a lingering finish. ” Caroline Gilby
Rebula Bagueri Superior
“The region’s special grape produces its best fruit on Brda’s steep slopes and terraced vineyards. Grapes selected from the best terraced sites have been fermented in large oak vessels with a touch of skin contact, giving a complex bouquet with toasty and honey notes, candied peel, chamomile, and poached pear. To taste, the wine has lovely intensity with a saline, mineral backbone, supporting flavors of lemon, Asian pear, and a hint of pineapple. ” Caroline Gilby
Chardonnay Bagueri Superior
“Being able to make great Chardonnay is the sign of a special terroir, and this vivid golden wine shows that the hilly vineyards of Brda are just such a place. It intrigues with complex aromas of yellow plum, peach, toasted hazelnut, and citrus zest, overlaid with a subtle sheen of creamy vanilla from fermentation and ageing in top quality French oak. It has generous body and fruit, underscored by a vibrant, fresh, steely acid core and a long mineral aftertaste. This is a classy and elegant Chardonnay that is both powerful and yet refined.” Caroline Gilby
Merlot Bagueri Superior
“Mediterranean warmth meets Alpine breezes in the hills of Brda making this a truly special place for Merlot, the region’s best red grape. It’s grown on the best spots in steep terraced vineyards then hand-picked and vinified with the utmost care to produce this vivid ruby wine, with inviting aromas of plum, blackberry and cocoa nibs, and just a touch of delicate vanilla. To taste, it is ripe but still fresh and vivid, with juicy notes of forest berries, fine velvety tannins, and a lingering elegant finish. It’s drinking nicely now but also has potential for ageing for another 5 to 10 years.” Caroline Gilby
Cabernet Sauvignon Bagueri Superior
“Cool Alpine breezes meet Mediterranean sunshine in the hills of Brda. This is pure Cabernet Sauvignon selected from steep vineyards facing south-west and south-east transformed by precise winemaking and subtle oak ageing. There’s a bouquet of expressive blackcurrant, blueberry and damson, with hints of cedar and sandalwood, and well-integrated vanilla spice. This is unmistakably Cabernet Sauvignon with its firm but fine-textured tannins, and there’s also lovely fruit weight and great varietal purity with a long finish. An elegant interpretation of the grape with further potential for ageing. ” Caroline Gilby
Carefully selected vineyards and sustainable production
Only 40 hectares of the best quality vineyards in the Brda region meet the strict criteria for production of Bagueri Superior wines.
The secret to growing high-quality grapes is not only in selecting the best sites, but also in diligently and adequately cultivating the vineyards assigned for the production of Bagueri Superior wines.
The vineyards are covered with grass, adequately nourished, and cultivated with great care.
The vines require year-round care, everything from winter pruning, fertilisation, and summer pruning to harvest, which is still performed manually by our winegrowing families. Vineyards intended for production of BAGUERI Superior wines require even more manual labor during the year, as only the best grapes are good enough to produce these wines.

BAGUERI THROUGH TIME

The history of the Bagueri Superior brand is a very vibrant one. Bagueri wines were formally presented with a ceremony at Ljubljana Castle, on 22nd May 1992. Despite its initial triumph, the line was at one point almost cancelled, however, it regained its momentum and became successful again.

The idea for these wines was born at the end of the 80s, when the Winery, aspiring to produce wines of the highest quality, focused on selecting the best grapes and implementing a boutique approach in a winery, which was until then equipped for producing large quantities of wine. Selection started in the vineyards and continued at the winery, where they experimented with new wine-producing methods. At the same time, the commercial department was pioneering an avant-garde and unique image, looking for a name and elaborating pricing policies and sales channels for the line, which was even then intended solely for catering industry. The image, including the uniquely shaped and protected bottle, was designed at Klet Brda Winery in the beginning of the 90s. The Winery received several awards for the design of this line.
