Vina Čotar

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.

Ruby red color with light garnet shades. The aroma is complex and charming. It is reminiscent of spirited cherries, ripe plums and black currants, spices with a balsamic scent and a slight coffee note. The soft and full texture is mixed with gentle freshness and tannins. We notice a pleasant mineral note in the aftertaste.
