Edi Sim?i? (Brda)

All French oak, more "international", aiming for Slovenia's first "icon wine" with his Bordeaux blend.

Šcurek (Brda)

Excellent white wines - and a highly promising Pinot Noir programme on stream.

Tilia

Generally fresher, more commercial range. Good quality, and 2005 Rebula a star.
