About Rodica Refošk Organic Red

Rodica Refošk Organic Red herbaceous aromas of hay and forest floor, red berries, and spices. Spicy fruit and velvety tannins on the palate.

After de-stemming the grapes are macerated with the pulp and skins for up to 8 days as spontaneous fermentation begins. The wine is then transferred into stainless steel tanks where it finishes the fermentation process. This wine was matured for 8 months in used French and Slovenian oak barrels and then kept on its lees in stainless steel tanks and bottled unfiltered.

About Rodica Refošk

In 1998, Marinko Rodica, a car mechanic by trade, decided to start a new chapter in his life and became a winemaker. 10 years later, in 2008 Rodica family winery had sixty thousand vines and was certified organic. The brand new environmentally friendly and energy-efficient wine cellar was completed in 2012. None of this would be possible without Marinko’s vision and passion and the support of his entire family. Today, Rodica estate organically farms 15 hectares of vineyards, with most of them planted with Malvasia and Refošk.

The picturesque hills near Marezige and Truške are located 5 km from the Adriatic sea, more specifically the Gulf of Trieste. Rodica family vineyards are planted at 250-350 meters asl, terraced, facing South. They enjoy significant day-night temperature swings, constant breezes, which keeps the vineyards well-ventilated and naturally healthy for organic farming. The soil is rich with minerals, consisting predominantly of limestone. The vines are forced to “fight” to get water, which results in better quality grapes.
