• Vineyards

    Čarga estate comprises 25 hectares of lands with vineyards extanding over 13 hectares of it and is, judging by its surface, one of bigger farms in the Brda. Our vineyards are sited on the selected positions where marly soil and the Mediterranean sun together with mild Alpine influences provide the best conditions for the growth of vines. The majority of vineyards are set at the height of 180 to 220 m above the sea level. They rise on the terraces with grass growing troughout the rows as we place a lot of importance on organic farming methods. This is tecnically called integrated production.

    We grow around 47 000 vines. The yield per hectare is extremely low which benefits high wine quality. For one thing is sure: the loweryield, the better quality of the wine.

    It is very important to choose the right vintage time; therefore we start at the time when the grape ripeness is at its optimal level. This means that sugar and acid are at the ideal level. We pick the grapes manually and we also choose bunches carefully which makes more work as we have to go into the same vineyard over and over again.
