Earth

The red earth of Terra Rossa colors our landscape. Everything that grows on this soil and ripens to perfection by ancient tradition is something pleasant and different.

Climate

The Karst is a limestone plateau in the Mediterranean. Mediterranean influences are limited due to location and altitude, characterized by hot summers and cold winters.

Grapes

The Vina Kobal Family Estate grows five grapes: the red variety refošk and the white varieties Vitovska grganja, Malvasia, Pinot Gris, and Chardonnay.

Wind storm

Cold winds prevent large stands of Mediterranean vegetation from growing in the Karst.

Vineyards

All our vineyards are located in Štanjel, one kilometer from the homestead.

The property

The family was involved in agriculture decades ago. Our property is 25 hectares large.

Kobal Wine Estate

Moments for best friends.

Kobal Family Estate is located in Štanjel in the Karst. We produce modern sparkling and still wines from local varieties of refošk, malvasia, pinot gris, chardonnay, and vitovska grganja. The vines are grown on the red soil of Terra Rossa. Centuries-old heritage of viticulture and winemaking is written in every inch of this soil.

Thanks to our family’s dedication and trust, we have become one of the leading wineries in the Karst wine-growing region. We are proud that our family estate also produces sparkling red wine. There are fewer than ten producers of sparkling wine made from teran worldwide. At Vina Kobal, we are committed to spreading the long-standing tradition and tradition with pride and perseverance.

We produce with love for nature and family tradition.

How did it start?

Ivo Kobal started winemaking at 16 when attending the Nova Gorica agricultural school. When his father Jožef saw that he had done an excellent job, he left the winery to him. Jožef was injured in 1983, and through a combination of circumstances, Ivo took over the winemaking at the Kobal family estate.

Passion

Ivo was so enthusiastic about winemaking and viticulture that he went on to study agronomy in Ljubljana. In 1997, he opened his viticulture shop Trs in Komen. Later they moved to Vipava, where, in addition to selling wine-growing and beekeeping equipment, they also provide consultancy and analysis services for other winegrowers. In Vipava, they also produce sparkling wines for other winegrowers.

Over the years, Ivo has undergone various training courses, becoming an oenologist and official wine assessor at the Agricultural Institute in Ljubljana. He and his family produce 11 different wines: five sparkling wines, three varietal wines, two varietal wines, and one orange wine.

Ivo is also greatly helped by his wife Ana and four children – Lucija, Lenart, Gaber, and Amadej.

Location

Štanjel, one of the Karst region’s oldest settlements, is captivated by its unique view. Štanjel is a picturesque terraced village that attracts the eye with its famous buildings and is located on the hill of Turn. The castle complex, the defensive towers, the Church of St Daniel with its lemon-shaped bell tower, the clustered houses, and the Ferrari Garden are the most recognizable heritage of the old settlement. The village, named after the church’s patron saint, Saint Daniel, is in many ways a unique cultural monument.
