We don't know all that much about geopolitical theory, it is something that we only really concern ourselves with when it effects the wine world. For example, in theory an iron curtain might be alright; it sounds like what would be employed by Brecht for a theatre production of Othello, where Iago is played by a Russian robot from the future.


Yet, we can only disapprove as it was terribly negative on the wine world. 25 years on, we have seen significant investment in eastern European vineyards and wineries, and the result has been the rise of phenomenal quality wines. The Sisi Pinot Grigio is elegant and easy drinking with fresh aromatics of citrus fruit and blossom that are classic for the grape variety, yet an extended maceration gives this wine a fuller body and greater intensity of flavours than many Italian Pinot Grigios.


The family Druzovič owns vineyards which spread over some of the best vine-growing sites in Mestni Vrh, Cerkvenjak, Stari Vrh, Bolkanovo, Štajerc and at the cross where they enjoy the maximum exposure to sun, while the micro-climate of each site and particularity of soil give to each wine variety its own characteristics. On 12 hectares there are some 55,000 vines yielding up to 110 tons of grapes which, once pressed, render some 80,000 litres of wine. The wine is in general of very good quality and has recognisably typical house taste. Hard work and continuous striving for improvement are closely interlinked with their basic motto: the harmony of man, nature and grape-vine.

It is not surprising that they are very proud of their wines, and in particular of those sold under the trade mark SiSi (Sun Chooses Only the Best). This line of wine production strongly shows characteristics of each variety, and is fruity, full-bodied and nice to drink. The top quality of SiSi wines has been confirmed at various wine-tasting contests, such as the one in Gornja Radgona; it has also received a Decanter World Wine Award, the most prestigious and important wine-contest in the world.
