About Edi Simcic Wines:

When it comes to the winemaking style of Edi Simcic, one word comes to mind–controversial. Unlike many of the stainless-aged Italian wines available, even the white wines of Simcic are fermented and aged for long periods in oak, and are therefore almost French in style. Many top critics consider him to be the best winemaker in Slovenia. Third and fourth generation winemakers, he and his son Aleks produce in a fascinating zone, Goriška Brda, that up until the end of WWII belonged to Italia.
