Kovačec Wine, which is run by young wine grower Uroš Kovačec, is one of the younger wineries at the Styrian end of the region. It comes from Juršince, from Dragovič, just below Aleluja, as the locals like to say.
"I developed a passion for wine in my twenties. A desire to make my own wines, to produce Riesling, was quietly growing inside me. At the age of twenty-two, I rented my first Riesling vineyard near a small family vineyard.
Winemaking is in my genes, as both my grandfathers were winemakers; one professionally in Kogo and the other more amateurishly in Juršinci.
My father Ivan gave me a home vineyard as a starting point, and together with the help of my family, I now cultivate just over two hectares of vineyards.
We grow yellow Muscat, Riesling and Lascaux, and are now adding a new plantation of grey and white Pinot.
We tend to produce dry wines, but there's always something to sweeten the pot.
I would be delighted if you would visit us and taste our wines - at the Promenade of Tastes!"
