CELLAR WITH HISTORY
The Klet Brda Winery is the leading producer and exporter of Slovenian bottled wine renowned for its distinctive style and appreciated by wine lovers in Slovenia and 26 countries around the world. The winery unites 400 families, who have been working together for over fifty years and have turned local wine-making into a success story. Our mission is to capture in our wines the uniqueness of the Brda terroir and use effective marketing to contribute to the development of the region and the prosperity of the local population. The guiding principle in our day-to-day activities is a deep respect for nature and its cycles, as we believe that superior quality is born in the vineyard.
Many hands make light work Klet Brda, whose story is being created by 400 families of “heroic” wine growers, is synonymous with the old saying “many hands make light work”. Our goal is to make Slovenian wines known to the world.
Until the end of World War II, when the Brda hills were split in two by the border between Yugoslavia and Italy, this area had known a special type of feudalism called the colonate system. Peasants had cultivated small patches of land, and wine had only been produced by 17 local castles, owned by foreign nobility. Klet Brda Winery was established in 1957 as a cooperative, which is still fully owned by local wine growers. We cellar their wine, market it in Slovenia and abroad and advise them about vineyard-related work. The Winery has co-shaped the economic development and the quality of life in Brda since the very beginning.
At Klet Brda, we believe that the production of great wines starts with our respect for the land, community, and future generations. We are committed to producing our wines according to practices that are responsible to nature and people producing the grapes and wine, while at the same time contribute to our long-term economic success.
