The Rodica Family Organic Winery is located in the heart of Slovenian Istria, in the village of Truške near Marezige above Koper. The wine cellar lies on top of a hill overlooking the sea of the Gulf of Trieste and the unspoiled nature of the Dragonja River. The vineyards are spread on the southern slopes of the Istrian hills at an altitude of 250 to 350 m. We cultivate 60,000 vines on 15 hectares, planted mainly with indigenous varieties of Refosco, Malvasia, and Yellow Muscat, as well as others, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Pinot Gris.
We believe that quality has roots in the vineyard. The lands on which we have planted our vines were abandoned and overgrown for the past 50 years. There has never been the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Planted in poor, shallow soil, the vines grow modestly. On this airy terrain, sunlit throughout the day, vine diseases can be treated and controlled without synthetic substances. By showing great respect for nature, thus, we grow great-tasting, healthful grapes from which we produce healthful and strong wines that reflect the character of our wine-growing district.
