Haložan blend is one of the most traditional local wines in Štajerska. It is made for daily consumption, a simple, fresh field blend of local white grapes. There is no specific formula to this blend, it is slightly different every year. What is consistent is the fact that it is one of the most popular wines in Slovenia.

Terrain: The terrain of the entire Štajerska region is made up of steep-sloped vineyards and narrow, wind-rich hill valleys. A diverse geological soil composition, consisting mainly of sand and clay with marl in the lower layers. The vineyards spread out over the finest wine-growing sites of Haloze Hills as well as Slovenske Gorice.
Farming: No irrigation. Environmentally friendly cultivation, following the integrated farming guidelines of Slovenia.
Vinification: Made from perfectly ripe grapes that were picked by hand three times over the span of September. All varieties were picked and fermented separately. Controlled cold fermentation between 16° C - 18° C in stainless steel (inox) tanks. Fermentation is done through high-grade (noncommercial) yeasts. The wine is aged for 3 months in stainless steel tanks on lees, blended, coarsely fined and filtered before bottling.
