Sometime you come across a discovery you need to share with the rest of the world.
What started with a quest for a fine natural Slovenian wine domain, ended with the discovery of a small wine domain, named Brandulin. Boris and his family, the owners of the domain, make wine with an immense amount of passion and love for the terroir.
Brandulin, is a small producers in the area of Goriška Brda, literally on the border of Italian Veneto region and the Slovenian region of Promoska.
Brandulin's terroir is influenced by the closeness of the sea, the Julian Alps and the Eocene flysch, rich with minerals but lacking organic components witch
give the wines a specific and distinct character we have not come across before. If you combine this with the love and passion for sustainable wine growing,
every one of Brandulin's wines is a discovery of its own, especially the Brandulin RdeÄe.
