Diverse geological structure composed mainly of gravel and clay with a layer of marl usually covering the lower layers. The vineyards are spread over the finest winegrowing sites in the hills around the town of Ptuj. Grapes are cultivated in an environmentally friendly manner, the so called integrated cultivation, under the careful supervision of the agronomic counselling service and the oenologists of the Ptuj Wine Cellar. The vines are trained in the double »guyot« pruning.
Year 2016 could be called the year of natural disasters. Early and warm spring has raised false hopes for the harvest with many hours of sunshine, as in the last days of April a considerable part of vineyards were damaged by frost. Steep and higher altitude positions, representing the majority of positions from where Ptuj Wine Cellar produces its grapes, avoided the frost for the most part due to their positions. As expected, we began harvesting in the second half of September and thanks to the dry and warm autumn the grapes matured nicely. A lot of different positions brought each variety a great diversity in aromatics and offered the potential for a typical Styrian vintage of beautiful quality.
Wine is made from previously selected grapes and only from certain positions which have the best habitat for Rhine Riesling. Optimally ripe and overripe grapes continued their path from juice must and wine under the conditions of protective technology, all the way to the bottle, which has enabled us to maintain the typical features of Rhine Riesling and offer you only the most – distinctively varietal aromatics and rich taste of this King among wines.
