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 'Sivi Pinot' is the family’s remarkable Pinot Gris, coming from a varying age of vines, within their Pročno and Španc vineyards. A famous type of soil called Opoka (or marl) gives Sivi Pinot its extra personality with mineral and aromatics, and after a hand harvesting on the morning of September 9, the fruit spent 25 days in contact with the skins to give extra texture and depth during natural fermentation. It is fermented and aged for 11 months in used French barrels (225L) before it enters bottles before release. Intense on the palate with dried and ripe fruits, spicy tones, and an undertone of fresh minerality, this wine has gorgeous depth, slight grip, and well-rounded acidity. A chef’s dream for pairing, as the Sivi Pinot accompanies so many foods well.
