Makovec vineyards are located in the village of Brje, on the hills, where the bora is frequent and the soil contains marl, rich in minerals, which can be seen in the minerality of the wine. Climate is mild Mediterranean, with dry and hot summers, and mild winters. The Vipava Valley is right on the border with Italy, north of the Italian port city of Trieste. The area consists of hills where the continental climate of the Alps collides with the more temperate mild Mediterranean climate of the Adriatic.
Savory full-bodied white, golden hue, notes of pineapple pulp, nose of dank herbs, dried fruit, and acacia. The taste delivers tons of depth with a creamy palate of baked apples, leeks and pleasant acidity. A perfect versatile white that can spill into the colder months with a variety of dishes.
