Style: Red Wine
Varietals: Refosk (similar to a Pinot Noir)
Pairing Ideas: This wine drinks medium plus bodied with a little gamey funk and red cherry, brambly fruit. Give me a bison burger or lamb burger to match the gamey quality which will blow off to reveal the fruit quality if you give the wine an hour to open. Qual or rabbit dishes could also be fun to experiment with pairing!
About the family: In 1998, Marinko Rodica, a car mechanic by trade, decided to start a new chapter in his life and became a winemaker. 10 years later, in 2008 Rodica family winery had sixty thousand vines and was certified organic. The brand new environmentally friendly and energy efficient wine cellar was completed in 2012. None of this would be possible without Marinko’s vision and passion and the support of his entire family. Today, Rodica estate organically farms 15 hectars of vineyards, with most of them planted with Malvasia and Refošk.
