Slovenian winemaker of the week: Bjana Winery


Bjana winery is nestled amongst the foothills of the Alps in beautiful Goriška Brda, the small village of Biljana may not be well known even in Slovenia, but its name in the local dialect, Bjana, has become synonymous with premium quality sparkling wine across the country and far beyond its borders.


What’s more, the estate where the winemaking magic takes place is equally extraordinary, centred around the exquisitely restored 13th-century Chateau Dorišče, whose lengthy history is as intriguing as the region Bjana itself. Nowadays, in addition to one of the region’s oldest wine cellars and most charming tasting rooms, the chateau offers luxurious accommodation options that will impress even the most discerning of guests – with tasteful furnishings and sweeping views of the countryside, we can’t help but feel like royalty on the occasions we’ve have the pleasure of staying here. However, setting and history aside, it’s the incredible wine produced
here that’s made the Bjana name known far and wide.
