Stanko Radikon was a giant of natural and orange wines, who created some surprising and unusual wines from Italian Friuli-Venezia Giulia. Radikon's estate is surrounded by the hill of Oslavija, which is between Gorizia and the Slovenian border. In 1995, the Radicons stopped spraying vines with pesticides, and seven years later they stopped adding sulfite. The estate has about 12 acres of vineyards near the farm on steep slopes that are very strenuous to work but generously contribute to quality. The soil consists mainly of Eocene marls and corresponds to the optimal conditions for wine.
