FURMINT

Furmint is our oldest variety. It was already around in Roman times and has been present in this region for over 1,000 years. It is completely at home in this region and occupies one fifth of all vineyards. The Slovenian name for Furmint, ‘šipon’, supposedly comes from the times of the Illyrian Provinces, when Napoleon’s soldiers, upon drinking the wine, exclaimed “c’est si bon” – which was interpreted as ‘šipon’ by the locals.

Furmint buds early and ripens late. It has the longest growth period which implies an excellent quality potential. Because it has large grapes it is of key importance for the quality that the crop on the vine is not too large. That is why the main, and most difficult, task is to maintain the correct load on the vines by thinning out the crop.

Verus Furmint is a wine with a uniquely gentle bouquet with hints of quince, pear, green apple, peach or lemon/lime. The wine has a full-bodied flavour with a pleasant freshness and ages very well.

VERUS SAUVIGNON

Sauvignon was introduced at the beginning of the 19th century and, in recent years, is justifiably becoming the leading variety in this region. Thanks to the sunny days and cold autumn nights, the conditions here are ideal.

For a good Sauvignon, it is important to have steady growth, thorough pruning, good lighting and aeration of the canopy. A healthy grape, a well-chosen harvest time and precise work in the cellar ensure the good expression of the variety’s qualities.

Verus Sauvignon comes from several vineyards, both old and young, on eastern, southern and western facing terrains. Therefore, by carefully selecting the time of harvest for each individual vineyard in each vintage, we can achieve the desired style of wine: the maximum intensity of the bouquet, an aroma of elderflowers, gooseberries, tropical fruit, nettles, capsicum, blackcurrant or cut grass. The wine is fresh, balanced and has a full-bodied flavour.

VERUS RIESLING

For numerous connoisseurs and wine enthusiasts, it represents the king of white wines due to its quality, unique aroma and bouquet. It ripens late, requires the best sites, a good autumn, as well as very careful and meticulous winemaking technique.

It was introduced to our vineyards from the Rhineland in the beginning of the 19th century. It established its home here, and now, in addition to Furmint, can be found on the best sites. Verus’ vineyards, planted with Riesling, are over 30 years old. These old vines give smaller yields, but bear highly varietal, aromatic and rich wines.

While young, our Riesling has a fresh, fruity aroma reminiscent of the scent of white peaches and acacia flowers. With aging, the wine develops new, complex notes of honey, cinnamon or dried apricots.

About us

Company details

Verus was founded by three friends and winegrowers: Rajko Žličar, Danilo Šnajder and Božidar Grabovac.

We brought together our family vineyards, expertise and work, and opened a wine cellar on the premises of a former bakery in the spring of 2007. We are united by our dedication to family traditions, since our parents and grandparents were closely linked to these vineyards and their wines.

Verus means true, real, actual, as well as honest, genuine, unpretentious, fair. We invariably strive to have this kind of attitude towards everyone and hope that our wines exhibit the same qualities.

Using our expertise and meticulous work in the vineyard and wine cellar we produce wines that unquestionably express the characteristics of the variety and vintage, as well as of our winegrowing region.
