03.07.2017Lidl's young winemaker 2017
Together with Lidl Slovenia, we are searching for young wine stars. Are you a promising winemaker under 35? Is wine production your mission, your life goal? Have you in the last two years produced wine that deserves a place on Lidl's shelves? If you answered 3 x with YES, register a.s.a.p. via website: http://mladivinar.si/
After we made an analysis of who participated how many times at the festival, we found out that there are only two winemakers that are with us from the beginning: Damjan Štokelj, from the Štokelj Estate, and Bogdan Makovec, Mansus wines. Since both properties are "ours" from the very beginning, we decided to hand out the first two invitations to the festival in person. So on Wednesday, June 21, 2017, we went to Vipava valley - first to Štokelj, in Planina, and from there to Makovčev, in Brje.
