Setting out on our second full day of wine tasting we left Sanctum in the Slovenian Styria and traveled West via Ljubljana to the Vipava valley one of the sub regions of the Primorska region. Working on 15 hectares, Guerilla is one of the few certified biodynamic wineries in the country. We started at the site of their modern cellar, looking out to the home blocks. Exploring the rebula, zelen and vineyards we take a deep dive into their terroir. And at the winery we take the same path that the grapes take which uncovers the history and philosophy of the winery. Before tasting 7 wines that represent the three lines of wine, Guerilla Classic, Guerilla Selection and Guerilla Extreme.
