Urban cellar The Doktor

Winemaker

The Doktor Urban Cellar is located in an abandoned boiler room in the heart of Nova Gorica. Designed in the modern industrial style, the place can welcome up to 25 guests. The tastings are hosted by Miha, winegrower, oenologist and sommelier, as well as owner of the cellar who follows the standards of biodynamic agriculture both in the vineyards and during the wine production processes. The grape is hand-picked, collected in boxes and delivered to the cellar where the processing, fermentation and maturation in oak barrels take place. Six different varieties grow in his vineyards: Malvasia, Pinot Gris, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Barbera and Cabernet Franc.

Groups can visit the Malvasia vineyard in Šempeter planted in 1928. You can book and enjoy a delicious refreshment in the vineyard as well.

The cellar also serves five different fruit liqueurs: orange, pineapple-mango, strawberry, kiwi and peach, all produced without added sugar.
