About Vina Krapež

Vina Krapež wine estate is located in the beautiful village of Vrhpolje in the Vipava Valley. The village sits at the foothills of Nanos and Kovk. In the past, the sea deposited rich layers of flysch and marl which make good grounds for vines. The sub-Mediterranean climate of the Vipava Valley is strongly affected by a constant wind. Mornik is the warm wind and the cold northeast wind is burja – bora. The valley usually has mild winters and warm summers. Approximately 1500 mm of annual precipitation climaxes in late spring and autumn. The mixing of continental and Mediterranean climates has an influence on the character of Vipava wines.

About the Family

In 1928 Grandpa Jožef Krapež bought the “Pr’potokovo” farm (meaning: Near the stream farm) in Vrhpolje. He moved from Gora (nearby hill) to the valley. Here, he started the beginning of the viticulture and winemaking family. Hard work, hardy hands, sweaty face, day after day, for the family to survive, for the farm to develop and advance. His son Jožef was developing and building the name of the Krapež farm from his young age. His first and last thought was always the cellar, in the morning opening and in the evening closing its door.

In 1971 Jožef Jr. decides to sign a document not to give the grapes to the Vipava Wine Cooperative anymore. Since then, Krapež has been an independent viticulturer and winegrower. In 1987, Jožef’s son Martin assumed the responsibility of the cellar and wine.
