Burja Estate was born in 2009 when some old vineyards were given to Primož Lavrenčič as a family inheritance. The idea of the new estate was to connect a traditional Vipava winegrowing culture with modern understanding of wine. Vipava is having one of the oldest documented traditions of extended skin maceration – local priest Matija Vertovec wrote Vinoreja za Slovence (Winemaking for Slovenians) in 1844, talks about “the old Vipava method” of using a week’s skin contact for white grapes.
