Strongly believing in respecting local grape varieties, Burja Estate winemaker Primož Lavrencic bought a 60 year old Malvasia vineyard in the Vipava Valley along the northern Adriatic coast some years ago. Today he produces Zelen, Pokalca (Schioppettino), Refošk (Refosco), Rebula (Ribolla Gialla), Malvazija (Malvasia d`Istria), Laški rizling (Italian Riesling, Welschriesling) and Modra frankinja (Blaufränkisch) wines, ensuring that the principals of organic and biodynamic production are followed. Lavrencic works with nature to encourage character and authenticity is his wines, always looking for spontaneous fermentation and diversity.
