Azienda Agricola Gravner

Gravner is based in the rolling Collio hills straddling the Italian/Slovenian border, and currently has 18 hectares under vine. A further 4 hectares have just been planted, and there are 8 more that can be planted. But as a perfectionist he is selling parcels off that he doesn’t like, fine-tuning the vineyards based on observation and experience: the goal is to end up with 25 hectares under vine.

Gravner is famous for his adoption of amphorae (large clay pots, sealed with beeswax) for elevage - now has 45 in his cellar.
