Harvest notes

Harvesting of grape varieties for Cviček takes place in September and October. The majority in Cviček is Žametna črnina, which is the last in the regular harvest, followed by the Blue Francionian (15%) and white varieties (15% of white varieties: Kraljevina, Štajerska Belina, Zeleni Silvanec), and the least contains Welschriesling (up to 10%). . Each variety is processed separately. The grapes are strictly picked and harvested exclusively by hand.


Maceration of each variety takes place separately in steel containers. When the fermentation is over and the wine has calmed down, we make a typification - mixing different varieties according to the statutory proportions. The charm of Cviček PTP is also that every year there is a slightly different varietal composition.


After typification, the wine matures in refrigerated stainless steel tanks and waits to be bottled just before sale.

Law restriction
