The Čotar family estate with its vineyards and wine cellar lies in the western part of the Karst region, in the village Gorjansko just 5 kilometres from the sea. In 1974, they dug the cellar’s first chamber into living rock and made two wines for the family restaurant, Teran and Kraško Belo, a white blend typical of the Karst. Their first wholesale bottle, the vintage 1988, was bottled in 1990. Their farm of 7.5 hectares is fully committed to organic farming and nature-friendly winegrowing. Wines are recognised by their fingerprint labels, expressing confidence and the Čotar quality, distinctive character and personality. The fingerprint is the winemaker’s symbolic signature.
