FOSILNI BREG
Magnum

Sauvignon Blanc

Big bottle time. Originating from the border, just like us. To be exact, from Ciringa, the Slovenian part of our premium site Zieregg. Salty minerality ensured by the coralline limestone it grows on. Reminiscent of nectarine and grapefruit with a beautiful herbal tanginess. Delicate and light. Infinite.

In 2005 we founded our Slovenian winery “DOMAINE CIRINGA”. Ciringa is directly located next to our Austrian winery Tement and well known single-vineyard Zieregg. Domaine Ciringa vinifies very puristic and mineralic Sauvignon Blancs that grow on pure coralline limestone soil.

Fosilni Breg means “fossils mountain” and has been relaunched in the year 2009. The combination of the microclimate and the coralline limestone soil topped with cambisol provides perfect conditions for an accentuated, long-living and authentic Sauvignon Blanc made by #brothersinwine Armin & Stefan Tement.

Organic Farming

Organic agriculture AT-BIO-402. Sustainable Austria certified.

Ried Ciringa

Directly bordering the famous vineyard “Zieregg", on the Slovenian side of the hill, lays “Ciringa” (Slovenian for “Zieregg”) on 340 - 480 m above sea level. The vineyard is characterized by coralline limestone soil with a top layer of loose brown soil (cambisol). This as it is, is a perfect terroir for expressive, mineral and pure Sauvignon Blancs.

Our Standards

More than 15 years ago we started taking the first steps towards organic farming. We are now in the phase to convert to biodynamics. A logical step for us and a beginning without end. Every year we learn something new, observe nature and get closer to it bit by bit. We see our business as a form of modern circular economy in which wine is part of an overall concept. Partnerships with horse and cattle farmers have just as much space here as the use of the company’s own forest for energy production. Wine as a way of life.
