Producer Profile

Gašper is located in Goriška Brda, which makes up the two thirds of Collio stretching into Slovenia from Friuli-Venezia Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Goriška Brda has a climate ideally suited to viticulture, with its proximity to both the Adriatic Sea and the Alps providing dry, warm summers with cooling breezes during the crucial ripening period. The Gašper wine estate is a joint venture between a local cooperative and the Čarman family, who have been in the wine and hospitality business for over 50 years. At the helm of the cellar is Darinko Ribolica, a respected oenologist from Goriška Brda. He uses Slovenia’s local varieties, deeply rooted in Germanic, Slavic and Roman cultural influences, to create wines in a modern, fresh style.

Viticulture

The Malvazija is the same grape variety as Malvasia Istriana, native to the Croatian and Slovenian coastal areas that once belonged to Italy. This unique variety is known for being taut and zesty, but also slightly honeyed in character. It is made solely in stainless steel and is slightly richer than the other whites, with aromas of tropical fruit and hints of almond on the finish. All these white wines have a vein of lively acidity running through them and are meant for drinking young and fresh.

Only made in the best years and winner of the DWWA 2022 Silver Medal, Rebula Selection is elegant and precise with great fruit weight and well-integrated oak notes, making it suitable for ageing.
