Zlati Grič Winery and its vineyards are located on the slopes above the town of Slovenske Konjice in north-eastern Slovenia (Lower Styria) near Maribor. The company cultivates grapes on 73 hectares of vineyards and produces wines at two sites. Still wines are produced in the winery's renovated cellars. The building is 3,500 sqm in size and has a capacity of 1.3 mil. litres. The production of sparkling wines takes place by means of the traditional method of fermentation, maturing and aging in bottles in the historical cellars of the nearby Carthusian monastery Žiče – a place whose history dates back to 1165.
The company also runs a nine-hole golf course completely surrounded by vineyards, a family hotel and a restaurant. Supplementary activities include the production of apple juices, fruit spirits and an agricultural technology store. The main building of the winery has recently been reconstructed and has received numerous acknowledgements for its unique architectural design.
It is featured in the project “Architecture and Wine in Central Europe” as one of the most interesting and inspiring wine production facilties in the region.
