Over the past 20 years, Aleks Klinec has developed the winery into a fixed star in the natural wine firmament - and in a very unpretentious way. Although he originally intended to study art in Ljubljana, he changed his mind and became a winemaker instead when he had to fill in at home at a young age. He quickly realised that he wanted to follow the traditional path of viticulture. And that meant: no chemicals in the vineyard, spontaneous fermentation, maceration of the white wines, long ageing and no additives in the cellar, apart from a minimal amount of sulphur. What reads like a textbook definition of natural wine makes it clear that tradition and avant-garde go hand in hand in this area.
