Damijan Podversic

Growing up in Gorizia, on Italy’s northeastern border with the former Yugoslavia (now Slovenia), Damijan Podversic dreamed of following his father’s path making wine for the family’s local eatery, Osteria Ronko Bienic. Now, Podversic’s meticulously produced skin-contact whites—labeled Damijan and classified Venezia Giulia IGT. After parting ways with his father, Podversic found a “spiritual father” in legendary local winemaker Josko Gravner, who taught him: “Don’t waste time—do the maximum for quality.” Podversic began bottling his own wines in 1998 in a rented cellar 20 miles from his vineyards. He still produces there, making up to 2,500 cases of wines each vintage that are aged three years in oak casks—including spicy Malvasia, a wine called Nekaj from aromatic Tocai Friulano and a Chardonnay blend called Kaplja. - Wine Spectator source
