Slatnik is an 80/20 split of Chardonnay to Tokaj Friulano from Friulian legend, Radikon. Stanko Radikon was one of the maverick winemakers in Northern Italy to craft orange wines with a distinctive Slovenian sensibility, and his wines have catapulted to meteoric fame on a global scale. Slatnik is from his “S” line, which sees a shorter maceration period (10 to 14 days) prior to resting in Friulian French oak botti for a year on the lees. Stanko believed a standard 750 ml bottle of wine wasn’t enough for two people at dinner, and that 1.5 Liter bottles were the perfect size. We’d have to say after tasting this wine, we’d concur.
  • Stanko Radikon’s grandfather, Franz Mikulus, planted the sloping parcels with Ribolla Gialla, one of the local regions favorite grapes.
  • In 1948 his parents took over the vineyard and planted Merlot, Tocai Friulano and Pinot Grigio.
  • Radikon’s age-worthy wines are done in the same style as how Stanko’s grandfather made wine in the 1930s.
  • Though Stanko tragically passed away in 2016, his legacy continues through the work of his family and a celebration of his life one day out of the year called Zivijo.
