Gönc Winery in Slovenia is making some of the coolest minimal intervention wines out there. 4th generation Peter Gönc proudly proclaims that “I hate everything about wine.” Well, he used to anyway. I’m sure some of us can relate to growing up around something, rejecting it, and then finding our way back as young adults.
This is a perfect chilled red to finish out the summer. Definitely don’t skip the fridge; the vibrancy of the fruit really comes alive when served chilled.
