The grapes are manually chopped, roasted in the cellar and macerated for eight days, the first two at 10 ° C, in order to obtain or retain as much fruit as possible typical of merlot. The wine is sprayed and poured into stainless steel containers where the fermentation is completed, and later a biological digestion takes place, which gives the wine its elegance and softness.
Ferdinand wines are made in Brda. The altitudes of the vineyards are between 150 and 300m and mostly look south and east. The style of the Ferdinand wine house is today shaped by Matjaz Fourth, an agronomist who, from childhood, felt he wanted to become a winemaker. He revived the family tradition, as the family of Matjaž's pranonot Ferdinand was already very successful in wine-making. In the Ferdinand wine cellar, the most attention is paid to the rebula they present in all wine lines - as fresh wine (classic rebula), matured in oak barrels (Época), as macerated rebula (Brutus) and in sparkling wine Sinefinis. The Ferdinand Cellar is the initiator and organizer of the Rebolium project - a rebula through time that explores and promotes its development.
