In the small village of Lože, where wine and honey are poured, we find a humble man with a great mind. Dušan Benčina took over a farm as a young man and started viticulture.
His motivation was to produce fine wine, where you can feel the diligent hands and the sun-drenched vines with every sip.
By cultivating 11 hectares of vineyards, the vines are given the ideal conditions to ripen their grapes. The advanced technology and aesthetic design of the vineyards and cellars show that wine is a value in the Benčina family.
The vineyards are 2/3 white, with sauvignon, followed by yellow muscat, chardonnay and zelen, and reds include blue pinot, barbera, refosco, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Each variety is vinified separately, also according to their location.
The flagships of red wines are Pinot Noir and Opus Bonum.
The wines are achieving excellent results both abroad and at home. (Vino Slovenija - Gornja Radgona, Decanter-London, Vienna...)
The farm is included in the Vipava Wine Route project.
