Unrefined gold in liquid form: the natural wines of Bozidar Zorjan from Stajerska

Bozidar Zorjan, the policeman turned natural wine producer who presses pure, unrefined gold. In Lower Styria, also known as Stajerska, where rolling hills meet deep forests, Bozo started making amphora wine back in the 1980s, then gradually became more radical and is now firmly convinced that you can't be a biodyn winemaker if you don't have animals on the farm.

His wine cellar is a 300-year-old descendant of the nearby Žička kartuzija Abbey, where his wines are aged for up to 3 years before being released on the market. Amber revolution! Bozo's wines are fermented as whole bunches in amphorae for one year and then matured for a further two years in amphorae or in barrels in the cellar. The result is highly complex, silky fine orange wines that are bursting with vital energy.

Zorjan vinifies amphora wines of the highest quality, in harmony with nature

Bozidar Zorjan is now one of the biodynamic pioneers in the region and worldwide. He recognised the potential of regenerative viticulture back in the 1980s. Renzki Rizling (Rhine Riesling), Lazki Rizling (Welschriesling), Muskat Ottonel and Chardonnay thrive on volcanic soils in harmony with nature and a variety of biodiversity. The vineyards are reminiscent of biotopes. Geese, sheep and deer that live in and around the vineyards complete the circular economy.
