The Tauzher family has been working in viniculture and wine production for hundreds of years in Kras. With some old maps recording their name attached to plots for hundreds of years. They also farmed many other crops to survive. Emil took over the farm Vlkovo in 1990.
“That’s when I gave up producing other crops and shifted to only viniculture and enology. At the very best locations under the village Kreplje I planted another 5,000 vines.”
Today Tauzher has a total of 7000 plants split between Teran, Vitovska, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Malvasia Istria totalling about two hectares. That is just the right amount for the family to manage according to Emil’s methods of high quality natural wine production.
