»Vino Graben« is internationaly established trademark of top quality wines. Winery is run by Mihela and Janez Šekoranja since 1991, but tradition of wine making itself is in the family for more than 100 years.
Constant education and improvements have shown us that with this kind of conditions there is a lot that can done.
Bizeljsko lies in the eastern part of Slovenia, close to Croatian border and only 18 km from Brežice. The village (175 m a.s.l.) is surrounded by hills and it's a part of Bizeljsko – Sremič Wine Region.
Our vineyards lie on two hills which are only 3 km apart, but the the composition of the soil on the two hills is completely different. In »Janeževa gorca« thre is mainly brown soil with some admixture of marl, clay and flintstone. On the Graben property soil is based on flintstone or silicat sand. Thus one can expect that a sort of wine from one vineyard comes out completely different to that same sort from the other vineyard.
Bizeljsko region has mostly continental climate with a touch of Panonian climate. This area statisticaly has the highest number of sunny days in Slovenia so it's no coincidence that vines are grown here for centuries. The first who planted vines in this region are supposed to be Romans. Region's very pleasant micro-climate is probably the reason why wine making has been here for so very long.
At »Vino Graben« we produce top quality wines.

Globalisation didn't completely avoid our region. We decided to follow new acknowledgments and technologies. For what is worth, together with some bussines partners we also developing some new techologies ourselves (air-decanter, maceration, resveratrol).
Expantion of our Wine-pallete is also not yet concluded. We are focused on specialities which are own or can at least be very rarely obtained anywhere else.
