The History

Vina Krapež was started in 1928 by Jožef Krapež. He worked tirelessly day after day to establish the farm to create a better life for his family. Located in the village of Vrhpolje in the Vipava Valley, Slovenia, the farm benefits from the moderating effects of the nearby mountains: Nanos and Kovk. The vineyards are planted on the raised southern slopes above the village on top of ancient seabeds rich in layers of flysch (sand/gravel) and marl.

In 1971 Jozef Jr decided to stop selling grapes to the co-op and became an independent grower. Sixteen years later Jozef’s son, Martin, took over. They bottled their first vintage in 1990 and have steadily lowered their yields. 

The Philosophy


At Vina Krapež, they work as naturally as possible. Many of the whites spend time on skins and are bottled unfiltered and unfined.
