PETROVS | SAINT MARTIN | BRJE
ONCE UPON A TIME
Tradition... Peter Stegovec was the firt one from the family who bought a property near Sveti Martin around 1880 and started the family tradition of viticulture and winemaking at the current location.
He was a well-informed gentleman who, at the end of the 19th century, already had a license to open a winery in Trieste, which was far away at the time. next in line was his son Franc and grandson Stojan, who, despite ambitious plans, failed to increase the estate, as both died young...
... Stojan's son Boris, together with his wife Boža, managed to realize his immense love for the land. Over the years, the modest conditions at that time have grown into a family estate, where today the wines of the Stegovec family proudly thrive. And to complete the cycle, Peter Stegovec, son of Boris, representative of the fifth generation of the Stegovecs at St. Martin, is here again today. He puts a lot of emphasis on tradition, and he makes sure that the house name Pri Petrovih will not be lost, because there is already a sixth generation involved in the work on the family estate...
