The company Zlati Grič on Škalce estate is engaged with grape and wine production, yet also offers a golf course, restaurant Grič and a viticultural manor.
The main activity of Zlati grič is producing grapes and wine. Beside that they also have a challenging nine hole golf course set amoungst the vines and hotel trade services in the wine shop. The company is based in Škalce, an idyllic countryside setting, that lies between the mountain Konjiško goro and Pohorje.
The grapes, from which we cultivate vintage wines, are growing on first-class viticultural positions, where a tradition of producing is more than eight hundred years old. We produce only quality wines,so the technology of producing grapes is based on the least possible weight of vines and on the environment kind producing.
The restaurant Vinotoč is settled in an old vineyard cottage, which is placed in the middle of vineyards close to the golf course. It has 100 seats in the restaurant and a further 100 more seats on the terrace.
Written sources of the French Order of Carthusian monks from Žička kartuzija (1164) date wine growing in Slovenske Konjice to more than eight hundred years ago. Santonino wrote that in the 15th century they had more wine in their cellars than the rest of the country put together. They had many of their vineyards situated in excellent positions in Škalce. In those same positions we produce grapes of selected wine varietals today.
The estate consists of 80 hectares. We produce only high quality wines,so the technology of producing grapes is based on the least possible weight of vines and on the environment kind producing. Vines are mosty growing on medium heavy sandy-clay soil, what is reflected in the nature of our wines. To our typ of wine also contribute also the local climate with a lot of sunny days and a mix of Alpine and Pannonian climate especially at the hillsides of Pohorje and Konjiška gora.
The production part of the company is enriched by the touristic offer, which includes guided visits of the cellar with a degustation, the culinary offer in the restaurant, the accommodation abilities in “Vinogradniški dvorec” (The Wine Growing Mansion), the golf playing at the golf course, which takes place entirely in between the vineyards, – so it is a treasure chest of adventures for gourmets. The guest has the feeling, that in this place the opposites encounter – the tradition and the present time, the motion and the order, the obscurity and the light…, but always in a manner, that gives the people energy and that persuades them to always return.
