The Radikon family's vineyard holdings cover some 18 hectares of steep slopes in and around Oslavia, near the Slovenia/Italy border. Since 1980, Stanislao (Stanko) Radikon has made the wines alongside his wife Suzana. Their son, Sasa, has taken up the reins and is now the soft-spoken frontman for the family business.
These wines are the benchmark for an unwavering commitment to the natural wine movement. The famous amber wines are made with extremely long skin maceration, years of time in barrel and a long rest in bottle before release. This process reveals wines that are deeply golden in colour, firmly structured, wild and of a singular character.
Radikon is not for the faint of heart. If you are a skin contact new-comer, the wines can be challenging at first. However, if you are an aficionado the style, these are some of the rarest and most sought-after creations in this genre that can be found anywhere in the world.
"The remarkable wines of Radikon... The biodynamic farmed vineyards teem with life. No additions at all in the wines. Sasa Radikon rising as his wonderful father Stanko’s presence remains. Such wonderful wines."
