The chapter began in 1987, when Aci was looking for a place of his own. His parents bought him a small, but abundant vineyard on the hill of Rifnik as a gift after he finished university in Maribor. At the vineyard’s peak was an old cottage to be used as a cellar. The house was carefully restored under the supervision of the Slovenian Archeological Administration, because of Rifnik’s archeological significance.
