Vipava 1894

At Vipava 1894, attention is focused upon vinifying the best wines that the region can yield: authentic of character, with a precise expression of their origins. There are some 300 grower members of the co-op – these are the most important partners in this great undertaking, working with the proprietor, winegrower Hannes Sabathi from the Steiermark in Austria. For generations now, the local growers have proudly cultivated and cared for the unique cultural landscape of the valley, and now support the visions and plans of the Styrian winemaker with their deep store of experience and viticultural wisdom.

In Vipava, grapevines root themselves down into the ubiquitous flysch soils, which are primarily composted of calcareous marl and sandstone, while on the valley floor, gravel without sediments predominates. Along with the distinctive flysch, there is one further factor determining the character of the wines – the Bora, or burja. This wind arises in the hills of the Nanos range, where the warm air from the Adriatic collides with the cold mountain currents out of the Balkans. The Bora blows nearly constantly through the   valley – frequently with ferocious untamed velocity, and makes a deep impression upon the landscape, the inhabitants, and the wine.
