The Kraljič family has been growing wine grapes and creating opulent wines since 1965. As they embarked on this ambitious path, new vineyards had to be planted. The family’s remarkable success story, which has lasted for more than half a century, was determined by the Kamnovec vineyard. Being not only the largest vine complex on the farm, it is also a popular tourist attraction, as it offers an awe-inspiring panoramic view of the entire valley in all seasons.
The oldest wine vintage in the cellar is 2015. The Kraljič family is most proud of their red variety Barbera, which is greatly appreciated and truly valuable by their customers. The outstanding wine is also enjoying increasing success both at home and abroad.
