What was not possible in the past, now it is!
Even if only very few kilometres divide Slovenian Collio (Brda) from Italian Isonzo, till not many years ago they were two far different worlds. But things have changed, letting new opportunities arise and a new experience have birth.
Barbana, Biljana, Kozana: three small villages situated in the famous area known as Brda.
A particularly vocated terroir.
Ponca (schisty marl/stony clay soils) and Rebula (Ribolla Gialla) have been living here together since centuries.
