The Valdhuber family have been making wine on the northern hills above Svecina since 1931. When Bogomir Valdhuber took over from his father he inherited his oldest vineyard planted in 1965, splitting another much larger vineyard in half with his brother, Janez, owner of Vina Falot. The larger vineyard runs from valley floor up a steep incline to a ridge line bordering Austria. The wide range of elevations and the vineyard’s marl soil (calcareous clay mix) offers differing grape characters while creating healthy, well balanced vines and delaying harvest times at higher, most exposed level of the vineyard.
In 2013 the Valdhubers created a new winery adding a large, open plan tasting room, restaurant and vineyard accommodation. Dijana, previously a professional economist, swapped careers to become a creative force in the kitchen, newly focused on innovative re-interpretations of traditional dishes. The complex, a blend of natural wood, concrete and glass with stunningly outward views of vineyards, is strikingly modern and yet blends well the traditional house styles around the valley.
