    Winemaker Notes

    Golden yellow with copper tinges. The color indicates the method of production, which in the right way highlights the intensity and complexity of the aroma (nice flower aromas developing in fruity and spicy notes), full body (the soft, mature and fruity initial taste is substituted by the note of apricots and melons), alcoholic richness with balanced acids, and variety characteristics (at the end, slightly bitter).

    Due to its complex body try pairing it with a wide range of dishes – from cold starters to spring-summer pasta. It is excellent with sea food dishes, and not too spicy Asian, Thai and modern Japanese cuisine.

    In 1860 Anton Simcic bought a farm in Medana and began vine growing and winemaking. He soon opened an inn and a store in the village and also managed his own wine shop in Vienna. Over the years his sons inherited the business: Nando the store, Pavel the inn and Teodor the winemaking. After the World War II the government nationalized part of their land, the inn and the store. Nando and Pavel emigrated, leaving Teodor and his son Salko.

    In 1988 Salko's son Marijan took over the management of the farm. In 1997, in the village of Ceglo near Medana, a new and modern wine cellar was built, thus creating perfect conditions for producing high quality wines. The new logo of the farm was revealed and a new future began.

    The year 2008 was a milestone for Simcic winery - Marjan, representing the fifth generation of winemakers, bought first pieces of Brda land and planted the oldest vineyards, becoming the pillar of winemaking from all points of view.

    Marjan's story, which was told and implemented through his wines in the past 20 years, in 2008 was brought to such perfection to present to public the result of his devotion - a new line of top quality wines ''Opoka''.

    Along the wines’ structure one can follow the intertwining of long-lasting winemaker’s experience, signature of his character and all the best offered by the Brda terroir.

    Four wines labeled as "Opoka" (Ribolla, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot) represent a completely new dimension in the quality of Marjan Simcic wines.

    A picturesque, eastern European wine growing nation, Slovenia can claim one of the most ancient winemaking cultures in all of Europe. Its history dates back to the Celts and Illyrians tribes, well before the Romans had any influence on France, Spain or Germany. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that Slovenia developed a more refined, private-sector wine industry.

    Today it is a powerful source of some of the industry’s most important orange wines (whites made with extended skin contact); furthermore, fully three quarters of the country’s wine production is white.

    Slovenian weather is continental with hot summers and cold, wet winters. It is divided into three wine regions: Podravje in Slovenia’s northeast; Primorska in its west, close to Italy; and Posavje in its southeast. These are further divided to nine wine districts.

    Showing a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness, this “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot Noir. The grape boasts two versions of its name, as well as two generally distinct styles. In Italy, Pinot Grigio achieves most success in the mountainous regions of Trentino and Alto Adige as well as in the neighboring Friuli—all in Italy’s northeast. France's Alsace and Oregon's Willamette Valley produce some of the world's most well-regarded Pinot Gris wine. California produces both styles with success.

    Tasting Notes for Pinot Grigio

    Pinot Grigio is a dry, white wine naturally low in acidity. Pinot Grigio wines showcase signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond. Alsatian styles are aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol compared to their Italian counterpart. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is often light and charming.

    Perfect Food Pairings for Pinot Grigio

    The viscosity of a typical Alsatian Pinot Gris allows it to fit in harmoniously with the region's rich foods like pork, charcuterie and foie gras. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its citrusy freshness, works well as an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secrets for Pinot Grigio

    Given the pinkish color of its berries and aromatic potential if cared for to fully ripen, the Pinot Grigio variety is actually one that is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made in the red wine method, i.e. with fermentation on its skins. This process leads to a wine with more ephemeral aromas, complexity on the palate and a pleasant, light orange hue.
