Simon Valentan

Alen discovered the Valentan winery three years ago. While driving through Malečnik he saw a sign saying “We are selling natural wine”, so he decided to stop by and was stunned by the their wine growing locations and the approach Simon Valentan is taking to his wines, purely made with an instinct for the territory. They also produce Pumpkin Seed Oil and grow other vegetables and fruits, all organic with respect for tradition and new knowledge. Their main goal is to produce healthy organic grown food and excellent wines made from indigenous and resistant varieties.
The personality

Simon is calm and even a bit shy in the beginning, but his wines are rich and not shy at all. The wine shows everything, the respect for nature and an honest approach. A very warm family!
