Sanctum Description

In the 12th century, the French Carthusian monks selected this area for its pristine nature to established their monastery.

On southern slopes of Klokocovnik and Lipogav they planted the first Pinot Noir grapes.

Today the wine makers of Sanctum continue this tradition in creating extraordinary wines with the unique flavors of the local terroir.

The cooler climate and special soil composition of Stajerska wine regions offer ideal conditions for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Welch Reisling, Tramminer and Pinot Gris

Wine Notes: Climate: Continental cool climate, with snowy and cold winters, and sunny and mild spring, with sun-drenching summers.

Terrain: Continental micro-climate on the steep hills and valleys of Lipoglav, located by the beautiful town of Loče in northeast Slovenia. All vineyards are located on steep 45˚ slopes with southern-exposure, ranging from 100 meters to 480 meters above sea level. Nights are refreshingly chilly, as the winds whip around the sharp hills and valleys. The soil made up of marl, clay and sand.

Farming: No irrigation in the vineyards, spraying as necessary depending upon climate conditions. Most years only sulfites, sometimes copper, and rarely other substances allowed under Slovenian integrated farming regulations. 

Vinification: Pomace from winemaking is soaked in water for 1-2 weeks and pressed again. This 2nd pressing then ferments naturally in the bottle into a refreshing frizzante beverage.

Tasting Notes: Fun, casual, with forest berry aromas, this low alcohol piquette is an amazing naturally sparkling quaffable refreshment for any occasion
