Talented winemaker and innovator Benjamin Zidarich inherited in 1988 from his father, the wine company, has made it a real revolution. From the outset, the company's activities could be regarded as a challenge to the ground, consisting of karst and requires great physical strength and resources. Weather conditions also Carso plateau is not particularly favorable for viticulture, as there are often dominated by a strong cold wind from the Alps, whose influence smoothes the soft breeze from the Mediterranean Sea.
Benjamin began by saying that the great work carried out in the vineyards, whose area was expanded from 0.5 to 8 hectares. On removing the stones and shrubs were planted land young vine indigenous grape varieties Malvasia, Ribolla Jalla, Vitovsky and Teran, and in the 90s were added Sauvignon Blanc and Merlot. In the period from 2002 to 2009 was built a new winery with a five-level cellar carved into the limestone. "Caves" are cellars for aging and storing wine, there are also working areas and tasting room, located on the upper level. From its windows a magnificent view of the sea and vineyards.
Today Benjamin Zidarich together with his wife Marisa produces about 20,000 bottles of wine a year mostly from local grapes that are perfectly adapted to the surrounding natural environment and most fully reflect the characteristics of the terroir. In the manufacture of wines wife Zidarich adhere to the principle: "Do top-quality wines from the fact that nature gives us, without any compromises." That is why the vineyards are used exclusively organic methods of processing. By modern standards, farming produces a small amount of wine, however, the number of his fans is growing, not only in Italy but also far beyond its borders.
