Vina Krapež wine estate is located in the beautiful village of Vrhpolje in the Vipava Valley, at the foothills of Nanos and Kovk. In the past, sea deposited rich layers of flysch and marl which make good grounds for vines.

The climate is strongly affected by constant alternation of warm, wet southwest wind called mornik and cold northeast wind called burja – bora. The valley usually has mild winters & warm summers.

In 1928 Grandpa Jožef Krapež buys The “Pr’potokovo” farm (meaning: Near the stream farm) in Vrhpolje and moves from Gora (nearby hill) to the valley, starting the beginning of the viticulture and winemaking family. His son Jožef then developed and built the name of the Krapež farm from a young age. In 1971 Jožef Jr signed a document not to give the grapes to the Vipava Wine Cooperative anymore. Since then, Krapež has been an independent viticulturer and winegrower. In 1987, Jožef’s son Martin assumed control.
