In 1997, he found himself enthralled by the world of wine. In an era dominated by potent, robust wines lacking in elegance,
produced his first wine – vintage 1999. Since 2011, he has devoted himself to creating wines with a distinct elegance of which he is extremely proud.

The creation of wines is the fruit of more than two decades of research, searches and insights,...

that the tradition of great wines is the right one. That it is self-evident. And that there are no shortcuts. If there is a tradition of viticulture in the family, you have to decide for yourself which wine you will be known for, he says. According to which variety and which quality. You know where this vine will grow because it belongs exactly there and nowhere else. You trust procedures and years. Unmissable. “Chardonnay for sparkling wine grows on the flat terrain of Preval, on the banks of our creek, while our Great Wine Chardonnay is made with Chardonnay grapes from hillside vineyards. Tokaj does best in the vineyard behind the house and Malvasia in the small vineyard where it has always grown. On the hillside, the red varieties Merlot and Cabernet thrive. That’s all we have, and that’s enough. I have firmly decided to do as the tradition of great wines dictates, because for me – that is the only right philosophy for the production of fine wines. If it is not high quality, I am not interested in it. We produce fourteen thousand bottles per year. If we continue on this path, we could get to produce up to fifty thousand bottles. How to best combine tradition and knowledge is something you have to discover on your own over the years”, says Jakončič.

BLANC DE BLANCS – 2018 extra brut

This sparkling wine has a brilliant straw yellow color with soft greenish reflections and a discreet perlage which, with its refined bubbles, is a sign of persistent secondary fermentation. Intriguing to the nose with an intensely floral fragrance, with notes of acacia, vineyard peaches, and a refined allusion to crusty bread. Creamy on the palate, it has a pleasantly fruity taste with a slight hint of lime honey. Exceptionally fresh and harmonious, with a pleasant mineral aroma. Ideal as an aperitif, it can accompany fish dishes or meat menus, but it can also be livened up without food.

DOLAN (sauvignonasse) 2019

Golden colored wine with greenish highlights and a rich body announced by the slow streaks on the glass. Irresistible aroma emphasized by notes of flowering shrubs (dog cherry, sloe, hawthorn) and spices. Mysterious, layered, and fruity on the palate, with notes of honey and mineral freshness, with a finale reminiscent of crusty bread or sponge cake. An ideal companion for Carso ham and bacon, an excellent accompaniment to fish dishes, meat or vegetable dishes, and medium mature cheeses.

MALVAZIJA 2020

Wine of intense yellow color with golden tones. Fragrant bouquet of floral honey and lime, with fruity aromas, especially apricot, peach, and melon. The palate develops a pleasant minerality and acidity. Convincing maturity for a wine that is still young. Ideal for cold and hot appetizers, to be matched with sweet cheeses.

CHARDONNAY 2019

Wine of intense yellow color with golden tones. It spoils with its fruity and spicy aromas, with notes of honey and soil. Its body is powerful, the minerals and salts give it a slight freshness. Each sip entices you to take another, especially when accompanied by dishes it harmonizes with to perfection: fish, chicken, suckling pig and lamb, as well as aged hard cheeses.

JAK 2019

This Cuvée of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot is dense and ruby red in color. With a rich and intense nose of black currants, blueberries, and plums. The smell is immediately noticeable. After decanting, well integrated with hints of berries, milk chocolate, coffee, and pepper. The palate is dry, soft, fresh, and mineral. It has a balanced and powerful body, an intense and elegant flavor. Excellent with hearty meat dishes, intense cheeses, and sausages. It is perfect for the company of hearty meat dishes, intense cheeses and cured meat delicacies.
Experts estimate that it can age with class for up to fifteen years.

MERLOT 2018

Deep, dense color wine, mostly ruby red with hints of ripe brown and brick red forming at the rim. Fruity on the nose, with an addition of herbs and spices, graphite and real ink and leather. On the palate it produces a veritable explosion of different flavors, where the respective elements (acidity, saltiness, bitterness, and sweetness) compete for temporary supremacy, but then merge into a complex and harmonious taste. You can recognize the taste of fine wild berries, crisp black cherries, caramelized onion jam and more – a decidedly addictive variety of aromas. Great for accompanying well seasoned grilled meats or even vegan dishes.

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016

This ruby red wine accurately covers every sign of aging. A mainly fruity bouquet, with elegant spicy notes and the typical Bordeaux scent of green bell pepper. It starts with a pleasant bitterish tannin note, immediately followed by the fruity flavor, then integrated with a salty wave (minerals) and freshness (acidity). The finish is intense, hinting at the flavor of berry jam (blueberries and raspberries) with the addition of vanilla, but without being luxurious and opulent. This wine goes well with hearty meat dishes, but also with a simple pizza with lots of tomato, cheese, and salami.
