An award winning winery with Georgian qvevri in Dobrovo, Slovenia.
Jean Michel Morel is a straightforward and genuine person, from Paris, where he learnt the art of winemaking. In 1989 he married Katja Kabaj and he moved to Goriška Brda.
He started macerating white wines in 1993, to give them more body and tannins.
The skin-on wine range is wide: Rebula, Sivi Pinot (Pinot Grigio), Sauvignon Blanc, Tocai Friulano, Beli Pinot (Pinot Blanc), Chardonnay. Also, since 2008, Morel is one of the few orange wines producers who make an Anfora white blend macerated 12 months in a Georgian qveri vessel.
First, you must understand that the vine is like a person, with heart and soul. Then, you can start making wine.
