DOMAIN Matej and Kristina Skerlj
Welcome to Domaine Matej and Kristina Skerlj...In the far north of Friuli and neighbouring Slovenia, the Skerlj estate covers two hectares of vines on limestone soils in the mountainous region of Carso.
Matej and Kristina Skerlj represent the third generation of winegrowers in their family, who have been cultivating vines since 1965, focusing on three indigenous grape varieties: Malvasia, Vitovska and Terrano. Their original methods have been preserved, so the harvest is still manual, the vinification does not involve any chemical process and without filtration, for an authentic and direct wine from the vineyard to the bottle.
Their three vintages Malvasia, Vitovska and Terrano are aged in the same way: two years in old oak barrels. They are a concrete representation of a difficult terroir, combined with particular native grape varieties, and of their greatness when worked by the right hands.
