Where to Buy


In the 12th century, the French Carthusian monks selected this area for its pristine nature to established their monastery.

On southern slopes of Klokocovnik and Lipogav they planted the first Pinot Noir grapes.

Today the wine makers of Sanctum continue this tradition in creating extraordinary wines with the unique flavors of the local terroir.

The cooler climate and special soil composition of Stajerska wine regions offer ideal conditions for Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Welch Reisling,
Tramminer and Pinot Gries
