ABOUT THE PRODUCER
About Sanctum Stix and Bugs Piquette
Sanctum Stix and Bugs Piquette is a fun and casual piquette full of forest berry aromas and flavors. Blaufrankisch, Zweigelt, and Pinot Noir. No irrigation in the vineyards, spraying as necessary depending upon climate conditions. Most years only sulfites, sometimes copper, and rarely other substances allowed under Slovenian integrated farming regulations.
Pomace from winemaking is soaked in water for 1-2 weeks and pressed again. This 2nd pressing then ferments naturally in the bottle into a refreshing frizzante beverage.
About Sanctum Winery
In the mid-12th century, French Carthusian monks settled in this northeast region of Slovenia and planted it with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines. The Podkubovšek family, starting with Vlado and his son, Marko, has always cherished and been proud of this local heritage, hence the fact that all of their wines are made in a traditional style, where the vines and the microclimate speak for themselves. All of the grapes are strictly hand-picked on steep marl-rich slopes of up to 45°, and vinified with minimal intervention in the winemaking process.
