Steras Wines, a Slovenian Winery with Famous Vineyards

Steras Wines, present in the village of Sared, is famous for its vineyards, planted on the terraces in the hills very close to sunshine. Marlena and Bojan Praprotnik bought land in the region in 1975 and grew vegetables and their first vineyards. They began setting up their farm after five years and moved from the city to the village. Their wine cellar was built in 1991 that allowed them to make their own wines. A twelve-year vineyard renewal project allowed them to increase the area under vine and grow multiple new varieties. Presently, they are rebuilding vineyards where they will plant old and forgotten Istrian grape varieties.

The wines at Steras Wines show the typical taste of Istria, the land of good wine.

 

Organic and Sustainable Approach

In 2015, Steras Wines decided to convert their farm to organic farming and use sustainable methods to protect the environment and their vineyards’ health. There is no use of chemical fertilizers or other additives like sulfur. A lot of care is taken of the vines to make the grapes reach their optimum ripeness level. It also reduces the need for disease-control measures.

 

Goal of the Winery

The main varieties of grapes grown on the farm at Steras Wines include Refošk, Malvasia, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Muškat, Pinot Gris, and Pinot Noir. The best grapes are further processed to make their world-class red, white, rosé, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winery aims to give more significance to their unique collection of old Istrian grape varieties in the future years.
