Krasno listed as one of the TOP 20 white wines in Great Britain
Earlier this week, we were delighted to learn that The Guardian has featured our wine Krasno Sauvignon Blanc-Ribolla, which we export to the highly demanding British market, on the list of TOP 20 white wines recommended for the approaching festive season. In his article, titled “The 50 best wines for Christmas 2019”, wine journalist David Williams described our wine as being characterised by freshness and pristine fruitiness, the two hallmarks of several white wines from this region.
Our collaboration with Majestic Wine, owner of over 200 stores across Great Britain, started in 2015. It was then that we prepared the first sample of the blend made with the global variety – Sauvignon Blanc – and the local variety – Rebula/Ribolla Gialla. The fresh and elegant combination of the aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and the fresh Ribolla Gialla, native grape to Brda region, has proved successful and, one year later, we sent out our first order for Great Britain. Convinced by the consistent quality of our wine, in 2018, the client added to their range another of our varieties – Krasno Pino Bianco.
The Krasno range was named after the village with the highest altitude in Brda, a place with a long viticulture tradition and exceptional geographic location. Krasno is a range of gastronomic wines, characterised by the balance between structure and freshness. It was created in 2012 with the launch of two blends on the Slovenian market. In the light of the positive feedback it received at home and later abroad, we expanded the range to 6 bottlings – Krasno White Blend, Krasno Red Blend, Krasno Rebula, Krasno Pinot Noir, Krasno Merlot, and Krasno Syrah. This year, three Krasno wines were awarded gold medals at the Vino Slovenija Gornja Radgona competition (Krasno White Blend 2018, Krasno Red Blend 2017 and Krasno Merlot 2017). Furthermore, the quality of the range also received appreciation from abroad, as Krasno Rebula 2016 received a silver medal at this year’s prestigious wine competition Decanter World Wine Awards.
