Leaving the Cejkotova Homestead Goče it was a short drive to cross into the Karst region, close to the Italian border. Here we were met by winemaker Joško Renčel and son-in-law Žiga Ferlež, who handled the interview on Joško’s behalf. We first hear the origin story of the winery and we get a virtual tour of the terroir in the region. We take a look inside the two cellars before tasting 5 wines. All with age, some with significant age, that perfectly shows the style and philosophy of Renčel Boutique Wines.
