Vina Povh Winery, Sole Producers of Orange Rebula Wines
Vina Povh Winery began their production in 1935 when the Povh Family planted their first vines on Vipava Valley’s hills. This action led to the beginning of their winemaking traditions. The modern form of the winery came into existence in 1985 when father Stanko gained control of the family vineyards and took steps for brand recognition, making wines of the highest quality.
Vina Povh Winery is the only producer in the village of Goče who produce Orange Rebula wines.
The wine made as their great-grandmother had done, before World War II, and even today, it’s still aged in a 400-year-old wine cellar. The winery is a member of the European Agri-Environment-Climate Programme since 2016.
