History
Our story begins in 1957, when Klet Brda Winery was established as a cooperative. Today, the cooperative remains fully owned by the local winegrowing families, which help us shape the life in the Brda region and produce some of the most renowned wines. Our true roots, however, date back to over thousands of years ago:

300 b.C.

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 a.C.

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.

1336
