Named after Peter’s grandmother, Cuvée Anna is ripe with aromas of wild berries, strawberries, melon, and peach. On the palate, very fruity with a lively, refreshing finish. A bright Provence style rosé with the inimitable cool mineral snap and high-toned aromatics of northeast Slovenia. Fun fact: ametna črnina is the oldest living vine in the world (at 375-400 years old) and it’s traditionally planted in Slovenia.
Gönc winery is a family tradition going back to 1936, when Peter Gönc’s great grandfather built their first wine cellar and planted the vineyard around it in the small town of Dobrovnik in Slovenia. After World War II, his grandfather moved to the city Ptuj where he started working in the Ptujska Klet, or Ptuj wine cellar, as a cellar cleaner and worked his way up to head winemaker and CEO of the oldest winery in Slovenia, now known as Pullus.
Peter’s father worked at the same winery, but on the side he also planted 24 acres of vineyards to keep up the family tradition (now 28 acres total). When Peter came of age they built a new cellar in Ptuj and started Gönc again. Peter is the 4th generation of winemakers and winegrowers in the family. Farming is organic, and all the wines receive little to no added sulfites at bottling. Despite this minimal intervention, the wines are even more stable and long lasting, even once open, making them ideal for restaurants or wine bars pouring by the glass.
A blend of 50% ?ametna črnina, 20% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Grigio, and 10% Blaufränkisch aged for 3 months on fine lees.
