- Ribolla Gialla (Helvola) was brought to the Brda region by the Romans.
- In the Middle Ages, the term ribolla referred to the method used to produce the best white wines.
- The first mention of Ribolla Gialla in Brda was made in a 1336 purchase and sale agreement in the village of Višnjevik.
- Since it thrives in hilly and marly areas, Ribolla Gialla has found its perfect home in Brda.
- The variety is grown in 22% of all Brda’s vineyards (approx. 400 hectares).
- Klet Brda is the largest producer of Ribolla Gialla in the world.
- Ribolla Gialla is a mineral and distinctly varietal wine.
- Its aromatic profile includes citruses, apple, linden flowers and cedar, developing more complex and riper notes as the wine matures.
- It is a perfect base for sparkling wines (e.g. Peneča Rebula, which has been produced since 1962).
- The oldest vintage wine in the cellar dates back to 1957.
|Have you heard of Motnik? It is a special kind of wine produced according to a Medieval method which involved smoking barrels with local herbs. Our oenologist and cellarman have perfected this procedure especially for Ribolla Gialla.|
