A great treasure of heritage

The wine press itself represents a great worth of the heritage and the expression of life and communication space between grapes, wine and man- its creator and caregiver.

The owners

The owners of the large wine press in the press house on Sremič, built in 1874, were Counts Attems from Brežice, who had many winegrowers. The last owner of the estate on Sremič from the family Attems was Dr. Ferdinand Attems, who was landowner from Slovenska Bistrica.

Vineyards

In the time when Attems were owners they had about 10 hectares of vineyards, during harvest of the grapes there were 20 to 30 people. Grapes were squeezed in a large press for 2 to 3 weeks in total and work did not stop even at night. Four men rotated the dub rock. They compressed from 30 to 50 hectolitres of must. They squeezed white grapes apart black grapes: Traminec, Silvanec, Riesling, Črnina, Gutedl and Kraljevina.
