Leaving Maribor following the tasting and cellar tour we headed North to the Slovenian Styria and Sanctum cellar. With Špela Stržišar partner of Sanctum Wines Founder Marko Podkubovsek we learn just how deep the winemaking tradition runs in the Slovenian terroir. We hear in-depth the philosophy behind Sanctum and perhaps never before has anyone described just how committed one has to be to make wine, when you’re trying to make the best wine you can. Winemaker Nick Gee joins us for a tasting of three wines, and we look ahead to the future of Sanctum.
