Kabaj winery among top 100 in the world

One of the most influential magazines specialising in wine, Wine & Spirits, ranked a Slovenian wine cellar, Goriška Brda’s Kabaj Morel, in the list of the top 100 in the world. The list includes those whose wines have ranked the highest at the Wine & Spirits tastings.

The specialist wine magazine Wine & Spirits selects the best 100 wineries in the world each year. This year a Slovenian winery has joined the elite: Kabaj Morel from Brda, the land of invigorating moments. This is the third time the Kabaj winery has made the prestigious list, after being ranked among the top 100 in 2013 and 2015.

These days the winery boast nine varieties of wine, with an emphasis on Rebula, the Queen of the Brda region. Joining Rebula are Pinot Blanc and Gris, Sauvignon, Merlot (both white and red), while a special place is held by Amfora, a variety of Rebula, Malvasia, and Sauvignass (Friulian Tokaj), which the Kabaj winery macerates in a Georgian kwewri. This wine also has the highest price of the Kabaj wines.

Jean Michel Morel originates from Paris, but he found his home in Brda in 1989. Since Jean does not like drinks with a high volume of alcohol, Kabaj wines are light, and produce between 60,000 and 70,000 bottles per year. The wines first mature in French barrels for at least a year, and then for several months in bottles.

Visit the Guest House Kabaj Morel in Brda, and toast their great success with their best wines. Cheers!
