Gönc Winery Harvest Moon, 2018, Rabelčja vas, Ptuj, Slovenia
£29.75 (inc VAT)
Not all heroes wear capes. They wear black, and grow perms! Some even make wine too! Now that’s what we call heroic… Peter Gönc virtually does all three, and what a winemaker he is. Coming from a marketeering background, he later took over his Dad’s vineyard, and has turned it into one of the most exciting wineries in Europe. He’s a classic rock fan as well, so good tunes playing is essential to his creative process! Far from a one-hit-wonder, the Harvest Moon (named after the Neil Young song, of course) is a single that will have you desperate to hear the rest of the album. A taste so natural and uninhibited, it goes down like cool refreshment in a hot, orange-skied summer evening. Sheer bliss from this Slovenian maestro
Meet one of our hero producers, Peter Gönc. Classic rock marketeer turned winemaking maestro, when he lost his job in the city, Peter went back to his dad's vineyard, working his way up and eventually taking it over. He's a one-man winemaking band and is a massive classic rock fan, which is expressed heavily in his labels as well. When wine meets music, it's always a truly rocking combination in Slovenia, and trust us, when we say there is no winemaking to had in Gönc Winery without some seriously good tunes playing in the background!
