The amount of energy invested in Stanko Radikon's wine and bottles makes his wines unique! Stanko Radikon Winery is located on the Slovenian border. Since 1995 Radikon has completely abandoned the use of chemicals in wine production, but in 2002 they stopped adding sulfites to wine. In the same year, they created two types of bottles and corks that ensure better aging of the wine and make it easier to drink. The grapes are harvested by hand, the fermentation lasts for about four months, after which the wine is aged for three years in large wooden barrels and afterward in bottles for a year and only then being sold. In the end, a surprisingly complex and deep wine is obtained, which is suitable for storing for many years.
Friuli-Venezia Giulia
This region is known for its white wines. They are produced from a variety of grapes, and this diversity distinguishes the region from other wine regions. Winemakers use non-traditional Italian varieties like Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Bianco, as well as the very "Italian” Pinot Grigio and local Picolit. Many wine critics agree that Friuli is the best white wine region in Italy.
