Wine cellar: The wine tradition of the Jakončič family farm dates back to 1847, when Mihael and Carolina Jakončič took over the first vineyards in the village of Kozana in Goriška Brda, thus laying the foundation for family winemaking. The commitment to quality grape and wine production at the Jakončič farm has been and still is of primary importance. Only this type of production, combined with specific vineyard locations, can form the basis for the production of extracted, mineral-rich and structural wines.
