Ronk estate is situated just about 100 km from the Slovenian capital city - Ljubljana and 100 km from the romantic Italian city - Venice. We are in the heart of the wine producing region Goriška brda, to the South, in the warmest village named Vipolže, right on the border with Italy. In front of the estate, facing the South you can see the sea, and to the North, there are the Alps.

This position blesses us with warm days mixed with a cool alpine breeze. The Brda region has sub-Mediterranean climate, with double the amount of precipitations towards the Mediterranean climate. The days are warm, the nights pleasantly cool, and the winters are mild.

 

The very welcome Bora wind from the Vipava valley is halted at the Sabotin and Korada mountains. The wind purifies the air, chases the clouds away and brings out the sun.

 

Our vineyards grow on grounds of Flycsh  with layers of marl, sandstone and conglomerate.

 

 

Approximately 55 million years ago, this area was covered by the sea. Repeating sedimentary cycles with upward fining of the sediments formed the terrain flysch.

 On the surface it quickly falls apart, in the Brda region it evolved into the soil called “opoka”

(i.e. marl).

 

The flysch allowed profound argil and clay grounds, which are water permeated and very rich in minerals. This gives great conditions for vine growing and higher minerality to the wines.

 

 

The fertile flysch and the sub-Mediterranian climate, with cold nights ensures great conditions for high quality white and rich red wines, a poetry to the palate and to the nose.
