We have planted the vision of our family estate in the soil. We bring it to life each day with hard work and courage.
First, there was a dream that bore fruit soon after our studies. Stanka, a food technologist, and Matjaž, an agronomist, had a common vision and goal. To set up a family estate following the example of people we met abroad—in Italy and France—as students.
We began with a small one-hectare vineyard and a one-hectare peach orchard, knowledge and the determination to make our dreams come true.
We decided at the very beginning that our family would live off the estate, making it our only source of income. We have been following this vision ever since.
With time and effort, our current estate gradually grew from small beginnings. Our vineyards extend over 32 hectares in the Vipava Valley. All grapes from our vines turn into wine under our own Berce brand. Stemming from the challenges life has thrown at us and with creative disorder, we developed other homemade products besides wine: vinegar, jams, and spirits.
