Batič wines are a creation of our own grapes, grown according to the principles of biodynamic farming (demeter). 220,000 vines are cultivated on 43 hectares of vineyards and approximately 75,000 litres of wine is produced per year.

In 1998, we revived the Vipava practice of planting vineyards with a row spacing of 1.2 m, which had been completely abandoned in Vipava due to the high costs of cultivation. The high density of vines per hectare makes survival conditions extreme. Such vines tend to slow down the lush vegetation. This is when the vine offers its essence.

In such conditions, the vines are able to develop a deeper root system to absorb nutrients and moisture from the soil. Because of the depth of the roots, harvests maintain similar qualities even in seasons of excessive rainfall or extreme drought.

In order to offer you pure, vital wines to make a toast to good health, we grow twenty varieties of vines, resistant to fungal diseases in the vineyards of Brajda, Brce and Hrastov hill Trikotnik. They are cultivated completely without spraying.

The Batič Brajda vineyard is the first vineyard of resistant grape varieties planted in Slovenia.

Grapes with botrytis nobile in the Vogersko Mali Dunaj vineyard.

The rows are exactly 1.2 meters apart for a total of 12,000 vines per hectare, each a foot and a half tall. Daytime temperatures in mid-August are usually over 35 °C. Our working days start at dawn and end at dusk six days each week. Because the vines are so short, we have to bend over to work with them. Back pain is a way of life. In my years of working the vineyards, I noticed how the workers are struggling in the summer heat, but always whistling or singing on their way home. At times like these, I was flooded with gladness. I knew that their songs are the most beautiful that the wind can carry.
