Description

This dry wine is matured in wooden casks for six months. Its special charm and gentle flavor, with the right amount of acid, is soon apparent. This is clearly a very different wine, deserving of special treatment. The concept of this sparkling wine being immersed in the sea developed through the diving experience of our daughter Tamara.

After thoroughly examining the temperatures, depths, currents and all other factors in the Bay of Piran, this unusual task was carried out with the cooperation of the Fonda family, farmers of sea-bass. It was early in the spring of 2009 when the above wine was first poured into champagne bottles, transported the following day to Lucija, and the bottles lowered to the bottom of the Bay of Piran. Secondary fermentation then began in the bottles at a depth of 18 meters, and a temperature of 13° C.

The wine then matured into an excellent sparkling wine, without the addition of sugar, and has become one of the rare extra-dry sparkling wines in Slovenia, and also the first in the European Union produced under such circumstances. The Fonda family (www.fonda.si), well- known for rearing the best sea-bass, made sure that the bottles of sparkling Oceanus were carefully monitored along with their fish. The bottles in the sea became a new home for various sea worms, oysters, and other organisms, thus creating a kind of artificial underwater ravine as they began to engulf the bottles.

The first bottle of Oceanus was officially 'popped' on October 20th, 2009 at 1 p.m. by Dr. Danilo Turk, the President of the Republic of Slovenia, in our wine-tasting room. This special occasion was attended by invited guests, and covered by domestic and foreign media.

A bottle of Oceanus sparkling wine is a unique product of nature. It is packaged in exclusively designed stylish wooden crates (walnut, maple or oak), with a laser-engraved logo and the Crnko brand name. The form and identification of the Oceanus champagne brand, and creation of the wooden packaging, are the work of the Kreativ company from Dolenjske Toplice, Slovenia.
