"In the mid-12th century French Carthusian monks settled in this northeast region of Slovenia and planted it with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The Podkubovšek family, starting with Vlado and his son, Marko, has always cherished and been proud of this local heritage, hence the fact that all of their wines are made in a traditional style, where the vines and the microclimate speak for themselves. All of the grapes are strictly hand-picked on steep marl-rich slopes of up to 45°, and vinified with minimal intervention in the winemaking process." - Vinum USA

The beverage can be described as - "Fun, casual, with forest berry aromas, this low alcohol piquette is an amazing naturally sparkling quaffable refreshment for any occasion." - Vinum USA
