MEDOT is a nickname, by which Ciril-Metod Simčič (1882-1974), was known in Goriška Brda. “Let's go to Medot's place”, they would say. When his son Zvonimir Simčič, Miro (1921-2008), created a new cellar and started to bottle wines produced from the family's old vineyards, the choice of MEDOT as the brand name was more than obvious. The tradition is today carried on by Miro's son Igor (born 1954) and grandson Simon (born 1982).
Today, Medot produces a selection of three sparkling wines. All are produced following the traditional méthode champegnoise, where the secondary fermentation is performed in the individual bottles. Our wines are based on the Yellow Rebula grape which is outstanding for its freshness and provides perfect balance between alcohol and acidity and is a native variety of the Goriška Brda wine region. The presence of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir helps the wines to achieve a greater complexity and aging potential. The secondary fermentation and the aging of the bottles take place in an underground cellar, beneath the old house. The bottles remain for a minimum of 5 years and they can not leave the cellar until six months after disgorging.
All of Medot's sparkling wines have a very delicate and harmonious taste, the fruity freshness of apple, lime and melon is perfectly balanced with deeper notes of bread crust and toasted nuts. Given their outstanding perlage, with the small and long lasting bubbles, these wines represent our contribution to the world’s best sparkling wines.
A truly unique sparkling wine...
