Our winery is located in the north-east of Slovenia, in Jeruzalemsko-Svetinjske gorice hills, which is an area that has been known for its quality wines and winegrowing land for centuries. We run a traditional family winegrowing estate, the beginnings of which go back as far as 1836. As one of the first professional private Slovene winemakers, Jože Kupljen launched the brand Vino Kupljen to bottle and label his wine as early as in 1976.
Our wines are very telling of the terroir they come from, namely the winegrowing hills of Jeruzalem. This is an area renowned for wines that boast a fruity and fresh character from an early age and that are famous for their extraordinary maturing potential (whites 5–20 years, reds 5–25 years), whereby each vintage unveils their diverse multilayered flavours. It all comes as a result of the eco-friendly cultivation of the winegrowing land, the vine and the grapes, as well as the winemaking processes in the cellar and our methods of tending the wine. Perfectly in tune with the Vino Kupljen slogan: With Sun and Love!
