Krasno

The Klet Brda winery is the leading producer and exporter of Slovenian bottled wine. Renowned for its distinctive style and appreciated by wine lovers in Slovenia and 26 countries around the world. The winery unites 400 families, who have been working together for over fifty years and have turned local wine-making into a success story. Our mission is to capture in our wines the uniqueness of the Brda terroir and use effective marketing to contribute to the development of the region and the prosperity of the local population. The guiding principle in our day-to-day activities is a deep respect for nature and its cycles, as we believe that superior quality is born in the vineyard.

The Klet Brda Winery manages 1200 hectares of vineyards in the Goriska Brda region. The largest share of vineyards is planted with the indigenous Brda variety Ribolla Gialla (27%) which is followed by Merlot (20%), Chardonnay (16%), and Sauvignonasse, formerly known as Tocai Friulano (12%). In addition to the above-mentioned varieties the vineyards are planted with Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Pinot Bianco, Pinot Noir, Shiraz and the indigenous Pikolit and Verduc. On average a winegrower cultivates a little less than 2 ha of vineyards. Consequently, he pays a lot of attention to the care of vines, which is reflected in the excellent quality of grapes and wine.

Responsibility towards nature, territory, wine, and people. In our vineyards birds nest. Mother Nature is indeed our greatest ally. Our vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of integrated production of grapes. The vast majority of viticulture practices are done manually, with great attention to natural cycles and respect for their characteristics. Maintaining a clean and healthy environment is for us, living and working with nature, of quintessential importance. The agronomists of Klet Brda winery engage with our winegrowers on a daily basis.
