Rebula Blue Label Nando, Orange Wine, Organic Wine, short Skin Maceration, concentrated yet very fresh, elegant approachable orange, palish colour, ripe stone fruits, herbaceous, not too tannic. All the Blue Label wines are fermented with their own yeasts in stainless tanks after a very brief maceration on skins. The Rebula, made from Ribolla Gialla, is the most textural of the Nando wines, with a pronounced character of wild bitter herbs. A lovely entry point to orange wine.

This small winery based in Slovenia right on the border with the Collio region of Friuli produces traditional orange wines of great value.

It is a small operation, just 5.5 hectares – 60% of which are in Friuli- Collio, the rest on the Slovenian side of the border. Here they have a unique micro-climate - warm, mediterranean sea air, cooled by the Julian Alps just north of the estate. All the farming is organic although not certified and mainly local grapes are used – Rebula (aka Ribolla Gialla); Malvazija (Malvasia) and Friuliano. Fermentation takes place naturally with no addition of sulphites (though a touch is used at bottling). Andrej Kristancic now runs the winery named after his Grandfather and produces orange wines of excellent quality and typicity with better than average value for money.
