Prisrčno vabljeni k nam, na Kras, na kmetijo Škerlj.

Ure in druge merilce časa lahko mirne duše pustite doma, s seboj vzemite le dobro voljo in odprto dušo.
Pridite, da se oko naužije lepot, da se telo naužijete zraka…
Pridite, da vas med odkrivanjem peš poti ali kolesarskih stez nežno poboža toplo sonce ali prepiha burja, da vas lačne okrepča pršut in poživi teran…

The Farm Wineshop was established at the place which by professional expertise is 500 years old and takes place near the main wine room. Originally there was pigger which was feeding manger hand-made from stone.

We build here a room for tasting home-made good wine and where we are keeping our bottles of Teran wine, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malmsey and other home made brandys.

Our Wine Shop is a room where you can enjoy in the romantic atmosphere of candel light while drinking home-made wine or Teran liqueur with the tiny sliced Pršut – smoked ham.

Red wine Teran

Teran is high quality dry wine made from Refosk grapes grown in the mineral-rich terra rossa soils and special climate at Karst. Ground is very rich in acids and high iron which explain the special nature of this red wine''s almost violet colour due to certain wine acids and minerals.
The special taste of wine is the result of the high percentage of lactic acid due to biological malo-lactic fermentation. Pliny wrote that Livia, the wife of Emperor Augustus, drank only Teran and lived to the respectable age of 82.
The medicinal properties of Kraski Teran have been confirmed by modern day medicine: lactic acid stimulates the appetite and facilitates digestion of fatty foods; more importantly,
Kraski Teran contains substantial quantities of bivalent iron. Traditional Kraski Teran should be consumed within first year since does not age well. We gourmet drink Kraski Teran with prsut (prosciutto or air-dried ham) which are the legendary pair of Karst cuisine. A gentle tast of oak wood is the result of aging the Teran in the »barik« wood.

Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon makes the most dependable candidate for aging more often improving into a truly great wine than any other single varietal. With age, its distinctive black currant aroma can develop bouquet nuances of cedar, violets, leather, or cigar box and its typically tannic edge may soften and smooth considerably.
It is the most widely planted vine Cabernet sauvignon berries are small, spherical with black, thick and very tough skin. This toughness makes the grapes fairly resistant to disease and spoilage and able to withstand some autumn rains with little damage. It is a mid to late season ripener. These growth characteristics, along with its flavor appeal have made Cabernet Sauvignon one of the most popular red wine varieties worldwide.
The best growing sites for producing quality wines from Cabernet Sauvignon are in moderately warm, semi-arid regions providing a long growing season, on well-drained, not-too-fertile soils. Typically, Cabernet Sauvignon wines smell like black currants with a degree of bell pepper or weediness, varying in intensity with climatic conditions, viticulture practices, and vinification techniques.
Climates and vintages that are either too cool or too warm, rich soils, too little sun exposure, premature harvesting, and extended maceration are factors that may lead to more vegetative, less fruity character in the resulting wine. In the mouth, Cabernet can have liveliness and even a degree of richness, yet usually finishes with firm astringency.
