Vina Bordon, Winemaking and Viticulture Since 1985
The Vina Bordon is located in the Slovenska Istra region, and its history in winemaking and viticulture goes back to 1985. Ivan Bordon was the first winemaker in the Slovene Istria area to produce his brand of wines. His son, Boris, continues the work of his father now and has introduced innovative and modern technology to go along with the traditional methods. With his innovation, hard work and dedication, Boris makes top-quality wines that are popular in their country and also worldwide.

Boris, in turn, passes his knowledge and experience to his son, who will hold the keys to the business in the future.
