In 2004 family Tement founded the Slovenian winery „Domaine Ciringa“. Ciringa is directly located to the Austrian winery Tement and their most famous single-vineyard Zieregg.
Decades ago parcel “Pruh” used to be a historical stone quarry, characterized by barren soil. The Sauvignon Blanc vines grow on pure coralline limestone rocks which is reflected in the wine’s puristic minerality. After long maceration time, “Pruh” was naturally fermented and matured sur lie for more than 66 months.
Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
BACKSTAGE “WINE ALONG THE LINE”
As a family and as winemakers we follow principles in life as well as at work. Organic agriculture is one of the principles we hold dear. With the end of the 2018 vintage we made it public and started a never ending journey. Year after year we understand a tiny bit more. Now we grow not on acreage but on responsibilities.
