Where: Radgonske gorice winery; Gornja Radgona, Slovenia
When: 2 February, 2012
What: Ice Wine Harvest & Sparkling & Predicate Wines Tasting

Radgonske gorice winery, known as the oldest Slovenian producer of sparkling wines, had for the fourteenth consecutive years, on the 2nd February, so called Svečnična (Feast) harvest.
Temperature was minus 7 for three days. It was a freezing feeling, but chardonnay was in very good raisins & botrytis condition. After harvest we were invited to the wine cellar and also tasted sparkling wine wintage 1979 – surprisingly alive.
