Goriska Brda is the northern sub-region of the Primorski wine region in western Slovenia, named after the two towns around which it is formed; Goriska and Brda. However, after the political upheavals of the early 20th century Goriska found itself on the Italian side of the new Italy-Slovenia border, and is now known as Gorizia (as in Collio Goriziano). Although the border technically divides the town in two, the key vineyard areas are all on the western, Italian side of the border, where Slovenian wine is no longer made. Today, Goriska Brda is technically just Brda.   Located at the foot of the Julian Alps, Brda finds itself wedged between snow-capped mountain peaks and sun-baked Adriatic coastline. The name Brda translates literally as 'hills', and the area fits snugly around the sub-alpine topography here. Just 72 km separate the highest peak of the alps, 2864m Triglav, from Montefalco on the Gulf of Trieste. Located half-way between the two, Brda experiences the climatic effects of each.   The local geology means that the soils around Brda are mostly the product of orological erosion. Well-drained shale, marl and sandstone are common, and form often loosely-knit soils, making terracing necessary in many areas.
