Carolina Jakončič Winery
In 1847, Mihael and Carolina Jakončič gave new birth to their winery.
They planted their first compact vineyard in Kozana and with this deed, consciously or not, chose the path for their winery. They wanted to expand the assortment of products as they felt that the winemaking of Goriška brda was becoming a profitable activity.
New roads and new railways were built, and new markets were being opened. At that time nobody suspected that vineyards would be attacked by phylloxera. Wars followed that pushed the family into difficult life conditions.
The monotonous buzz of a tractor somewhere in the vineyard is the only proof that modern technology may enter the world of traditional manual work, custom and knowledge passed on from one generation to another. Experiences from days gone past direct the impatience of the young and on our winery farm we are very proud that the children and parents together care for the vineyards, winemaking and marketing.
Wines On Show
We believe in our wines, because we believe in our grapes. Simčič wines are produced from grapes that are cultivated in our own vineyards located in the very heart of Goriška brda. We believe in the Goriška brda soil which was left by the sea on the hills' surface in ancient times. Wind, rain and sun have ground, washed and heated it for thousands of years. The outcome was a soil rich in minerals, which contributes to the production of unique wines.
Wines On Show
Today the Ferdinand wine house is led by Matjaž Četrtič, an agronomist who wanted to become a wine-maker from an early age. He brought a family wine growing tradition back to life from the times when his great grandfather was making wine very successfully.
Our wines are superb in style & technique and have a very personal, unique note as well, reflecting our love for nature and our passion for wines and winemaking. They are simply special.
