Located in Snežatno. In the Goriška Brda zone of Slovenia, near the border of Italy, the Štekar winery is known for producing red and white wines made in the traditional manner, with extended skin contact and little or no Sulphur added. This area of Slovenia is a border zone which was once part of the Hapsburg empire. The hilly rugged terrain is marked with monuments to both world wars. Local villages list the names of soldiers who died a hundred years ago and whose family names still mark the local wineries. It was here, in 1985, that Roman Stekar decided to forego selling fruit from his small plot of vines to the local cooperative and make his wines in the traditional manner.

Rebula, also known as Ribolla Gialla, is a native to Friuli, Oslavia and this little corner of western Slovenia. Here it is planted in the famous local opoka (marl) soils of the area, and was hand-harvested in late September. As the natural fermentation began, the skins remained with the must for 14 days before being removed. The wine remained in giant 2000 liter Acacia wood barrels for eight months before being bottled without filtration. The result is expressive and spectacular; aromatic and inviting on the nose, the Rebula showcases yellow fruit, a firm structure. and deep base tones. Another great value in Slovenia. 13.5 alcohol. Only 17mg/l SO2. Les than 300cs produced. Certified organic.
