Gönc winery is a family tradition going back to 1936, when its current steward, 4th generation Peter Gönc’s great grandfather built their first wine cellar and planted the vineyard around it in the small town of Dobrovnik in Slovenia. After World War II, his grandfather moved to the city Ptuj where he started working in the Ptujska Klet, or Ptuj wine cellar, as a cellar cleaner and worked his way up to head winemaker and CEO of the oldest winery in Slovenia, now known as Pullus.  

Peter’s father worked at the same winery, but on the side he also planted 24 acres of vineyards to keep up the family tradition (now 28 acres total). When Peter came of age they built a new cellar in Ptuj and started Gönc again. Farming is organic, and all the wines receive little to no added sulfites at bottling. Despite this minimal intervention, the wines are even more stable and long lasting, even once open, making them ideal for restaurants or wine bars pouring by the glass.  

Fun fact: Gönc is also a name for a barrel that they produce in Hungary, from whence the Gönc family hails, that’s 136 liters volume. The 136 dots on each bottle of their wines are in tribute to the family’s long history in the area’s wine community.

Anna Rosé is made of 50% Žametna črnina, 20% Pinot Noir, 20% Pinot Grigio and 10% Blaufränkisch from vines between 20-55 years old, all low yielding and pruned to a single guyot at an elevation of 820-1300 feet.  Aged 3 months on fine lees.

Our first reaction to this Rosé was that it is wildly delicious! Brimming with strawberry, raspberry, pomegranate, peach and melon flavors, it also has a gorgeous beam of cool mineral salinity and high-toned aromatics that speak to its origin in northeast Slovenia. Named for Peter's grandmother Anna, this is a family fave every summer.
