Cotar

The Čotar family business with vineyards, cellar and house is located in the western part of the Karst region, near the village of Gorjansko, only 5 km from the sea. Although the family has always had a winemaking tradition, today's winery has sprung up out of nowhere. Well 40 years ago, precisely in 1974, we built the first part of the cellar, dug out of the rock and for our tavern we made the first wine, Teran and a white wine called Kraško belo. In 1990, we bottled the first wines for sale, the 1988 vintage. A year earlier, we built the second part of the cellar and finished the rest of it in 2002. Vines We are an ecological company and we cultivate our vineyards respecting nature. The vineyards: Pečina, Olarija, Dražna, Dusce, Polje, Kot, Ivanji grad stretch over 7.5 hectares. Planting a vineyard with us means cleaning the soil of bushes and trees, moving the hard and rocky soil and adding soil bringing it back from the sinkholes.
