Wine Cellar - Stojan Ščurek

It would be hard to put an exact date on when the Ščurek family became involved in viticulture, but written records show that Stojan’s grandfather Franc cultivated 1 hectare of vines, making 50 hectolitres of wine. Today Stojan farm 20 hectares of vineyards with the help of five sons, and have a yield to match. The major part of the estate’s vineyards lies in the Italian section of Brda, with Grotišče, Dugo, Mahober, Jazbine, Jordano, Gredič and Kozlink being the prime sites. Each year the Ščureks release up to 80,000 bottles of top quality wine. They have remained faithful to fresh but full-bodied wines, and delay the first racking until late spring. These wines need a little time to develop in the glass, but once they do it is hard to stop them. While making use of state-of-the-art technology, the Ščureks also explore the realm of possibilities offered by oak barrels, and are notable in their commitment to autochthonous varieties. They are particularly proud of the white and red Stara Brajda blends and the blends sold under the names UP and Kontra.
