Štekar started from a family with humble beginnings in the Goriška Brda zone of Slovenia back in 1985. A few hectares of vines were theirs, but they were farmers for a nearby cooperative until they began to grow and have the means to start their own winery. Today, still small and dedicated to the best fruit they can grow; they farm 10 hectares of vines and produce 35,000 bottles in total. Combined with another 22 hectares of cherry orchards, as well as an agriturismo, Roman Štekar, and his son Jure, run this lovely natural winery in the stunning hills of western Slovenia. In 2006, the winery received its organic certification, showing further their commitment to low-impact start-to-finish wine making which they have supported since the beginning. Their use of neutral oak barrels, tiny amounts of SO2, and pure expressions of the locally used varietals; proves to be working for them as they continue with their gorgeous winery in one of the most famous ‘natural’ wine regions of the world. Štekar 'Malvazija' is a uniquely beautiful wine from this estate, full of character and style from the diverse Malvasia (locally Malvazija) grape. After a hand-harvesting from the young Pročno vineyard, and 14 days with skin contact, the must goes through fermentation and 9 months of aging in used 400L acacia barrels in order to give extra structure and to aid in bringing out the floral components of the grape. The finished wine is intense on the nose, with beautiful fruit tones, robust herbal quality, and even hints of acacia flower. It is fresh while very full-bodied, harmonious in alcohol and acidity, and overall very balanced and wonderful for drinking solo, or around a feast of charcuterie and cheeses.
