About Gönc Winery Dirty Deeds Pinot Noir
Gönc Winery Dirty Deeds Pinot Noir emits aromas of bright confit cherry, red berries, and soft dark spices. The palate’s lithe, vivacious texture is matched by equally ebullient red fruits, dried rose petals, savory exotic spices, and a rainy forest floor. Fine-grained tannins shore up the wine’s deeper flavors while pitch-perfect acidity illuminates the more delicate flavors as it gently carries them into a lingering, notably lifted finish. Grilled pork steaks, mushroom-heavy dishes, and pan-fried trout will all show this wine in its very best light, but it’s quite a glass on its own too.
About Gönc Winery
Gönc Winery is a family tradition going back to 1936 when Peter Gönc’s great-grandfather built their first wine cellar and planted the vineyard around it in the small town of Dobrovnik in Slovenia. After World War II, his grandfather moved to the city of Ptuj where he started working in the Ptujska Klet, or Ptuj wine cellar, as a cellar cleaner and worked his way up to head winemaker and CEO of the oldest winery in Slovenia, now known as Pullus.
Peter’s father worked at the same winery, but on the side, he also planted 24 acres of vineyards to keep up the family tradition (now 28 acres total). When Peter came of age they built a new cellar in Ptuj and started Gönc again. Peter is the 4th generation of winemakers and winegrowers in the family. Farming is organic, and all the wines receive little to no added sulfites at bottling. Despite this minimal intervention, the wines are even more stable and long-lasting, even once open, making them ideal for restaurants or wine bars pouring by the glass.
Fun fact: Gönc is actually a name for a barrel that they produce in Hungary, from whence the Gönc family hails, that’s 136 liters volume. The 136 dots on each bottle of their wines are in tribute to the family’s long history in the area’s wine community.
