Kristian Keber

Kristian Keber is a predestined, son of Edi, and has an infinite passion for the Collio Gorizia. Since she has spent most of her time in the rows and in the cellar with her dad, watching her every single gesture. He attended the Enological Agrarian Institute of Cividale del Friuli and is fortunate to inherit a vineyard of about 2 hectares from his maternal grandfather. In the mind has the idea of ​​producing a wine-land that could express the whole terroir. He calls it the word Slovena BRDA, which in Italian means Collio, and the labels are reported seven K, each of which represents a pole with two branches, four human shapes in a sort of mime of work distributed in the four seasons. Three kilometers apart Kristian's paternal home, located in Zegla, from its vineyard across the Slovenian border. A vineyard surrounded by woods and herbs, located on the characteristic Ponca, the sandstone that makes the wines of the Collio unique, where Kristian cultivates vineyards of Malvasia Istriana, Friulano (ex Tocai) and Ribolla Gialla aged 50 years old. Kristian follows the biodynamic philosophy, with the elimination of chemical fertilizers, is attentive to lunar phases and uses biodynamic preparations such as manure horns. The yields are low and the harvest is just manual. The cellar grapes are left to macerate and ferment in concrete tanks without any temperature control only with native yeasts. At the end fermentation, grapes are pressed and the grapes are poured into 15-hectolitre oak barrels where refining takes place for 2 years. Kristian has largely achieved his dream.
