We love wine and the region we live in. It gives our work shape, draws a line, defines who we are and even more: who we are not.
Barren soils, bare rocks and a slope that makes you reverent. Extreme conditions under which only wine can survive.
Kalk & Kreide
Our “signature wine”. It is in perfect harmony with nature, terroir and our philosophy. Ripe pears blended with aromatic elderberries. A mix of air and time reveal spicy cassis and salt-preserved lemons on the palate. Very complex with deep minerality.
First vineyard owned by our family. Planted by Josef Tement in the early 50s. This Sauvignon impresses with deep mineral and citrus flavours, caper salt & black currant. Great wine with great ageing potential!
Our flagship wine. In the deep nose this exceptional vintage shows a slender, smoky flavour spectrum underlaid with elegance and limestone spices. Incredibly mineral and structured. Air helps bring out aromas reminiscent of salt lemon and pineapple as well as thyme, gooseberries and camphor. Palate fuming minerality, salt flowers and preserved lemons.
Family Winery Tement
Families are about solidarity but are also the sum of their individuals. Our family thrives together because of its differences, however people that need each other need space just as much to grow. Tradition is as important as change. Those who merely continue their ancestors path, without questioning it, stay spellbound, unable to ever see with their own eyes.
Keeping the vineyards and our soil in balance is our concern. More than 15 years ago we started to deal with organic agriculture, now we are
in the transition to biodynamics. A logical step and a beginning without end. It is our understanding of modern circular economy, in which transnational partnerships with horse and cattle farmers find space as well as the use of renewable energy.
Wine and a good life are tightly connected. The step from being a winemaker to being a host is a small one.
Something like Zieregg’s little brother. The wines on Slovenian soil are in no way inferior to the great idol.
