Soil: The diverse geological basis of soils, sandy-loamy soils influence the development of aromas and the character of our Sparkling Wines.

Climate: Our vineyards are located at the crossroads of pre-Alpine and Pannonian climates with typical humid, cold winters and dry, hot summers.


Cultivation: All production is carried out according to the guidelines of environmentally friendly production. The grapes are picked by hand.


Winemaking: Emerita professor Ann C. Noble from the University of California Davis conducted a research project about the impact of fluorescent light – commonly used in stores – on the taste of sparkling wines. It was proven that a wine's exposure to light, even for a relatively short period of time, decreases the intensity of citrus aromas and increases the development of its off-flavour, called the light-struck aroma. The perfected sparkling wine production method we devised is directly inspired by these scientific conclusions.


Description: The first vintage of Untouched by Light is extremely fresh, fruity and citrusy with the aftertaste of green tea and mint. There is a continutation from the nose to the mouth. Very delicate bubbles give creaminess to the wine. It's like an echo, balancing between the softness and crispiness which are usually in contradiction, but here they combine.3

    The first sparkling wine in the world, produced in complete darkness.

    Grapes harvested at night in Radgona vineyards. Sparkling wine matured in centuries-old cellars without any access to light. Filled in black bottles. Sealed in black foil. For tasting in complete darkness. The best things happen in the dark.



    Crafted by darkness

    The entire production process is done in the absolute darkness. The grapes are harvested on moonless nights. The wine is handled in conditions void of light, using night vision goggles. The wine matures in dark cellars, hidden in the caves of Radgona, in the complete absence of light, for up to three years.
    That is how we create Untouched By Light sparkling wine.



    Inspired by centuries

    In the making of Untouched By Light sparkling wine we have relied on the knowledge collected throughout the centuries.
    From the period of archduke Johann of Habsburg-Lorraine, who expanded wine production in the Radgona area to the times when the Radgonske gorice cellars were owned by the Swiss-French family Bouvier.
    All of it brought us to the unique taste of Untouched By Light.
