FOSILNI BREG
Magnum

Sauvignon Blanc

Big bottle time. Sauvignon blanc grown on the slopes of Ciringa, the Slovenian part of our most important single vineyard Zieregg in Austria. The terroir is characterized by coralline limestone and cambisol soil and provides ideal conditions for this mineralic purist labelled as “Fosilni Breg” (fossils mountain). Very structured and straightforward wine with delicate hints of salty lemon zest.

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.

Directy 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 coraline 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.
