Rebula

An important link between our village of Snežeče with the past is marked by the Ribolla Gialla (Rebula) variety, which was first mentioned in the entire region of Gorica Wine-Growing Hills (Goriška Brda) exactly therein. The Goriška Brda Compendium 1 contains sales agreement Cod. R 80, which reads that, on 27 May 1336, Ancil from Snežeče sold one-tenth of his vineyards to Henrik from Rittersberg where 6 buckets or about 220 litres of Rebula were produced on an annual basis. According to an older source, Ancil’s father from Snežeče had sold his hamlet in Snežeče (Dobuje) on 31 December 1323. Most likely, both sources refer to vineyards located on the same slopes around the Church of Saint Mary of the Snows where present-day Dobuje Wine Estate vineyards can be found.
It is thus far from coincidental that the oldest bottle of wine at our wine estate contains a 1969 vintage year Rebula.

By interfering therewith only to a minimum extent, I have been able to ensure that tasting of our wines provides you with a sense of harmony that ties all of their elements into a harmonious whole, the latter also being a reflection of precision, hard and responsible work, dedication and intimate knowledge of my own vineyards.
