Heroic viticulture is a mission originating in the love for our Land and our ancestors’ rich experience.
Living with the land
Viticulture is the way of life in Brda. Almost every family living here cultivates a small vineyard, where we also grow cherry and olive trees. We are following in the footsteps of our fathers, our grandfathers and our great-grandfathers. Our love for, and great devotion to, our remarkable land are deeply rooted in our hearts, so nothing can threaten them.
On average, the producers own 2-3ha vineyards, positioned on steep hills, with no possibility of irrigation, or machine work. That is why most of the activities in the vineyards have to be carried out manually, with a lot of attention to natural circles and quality control. Besides being a way of life and a job, cultivating vines contributes to richness of cultural landscape and to (sustainable) development of remote rural areas.
Tradition infused with modernity
The secrets of wine growing are passed from a father to a son spontaneously, naturally with much patience and love. This process of succession from one generation to another is long, as the younger generation has to gradually master the traditional know-how developed by their ancestors and internalise it, while at the same time acquiring new knowledge through formal education.
