GROWING FROM TRADITION
At Bordon, we have been creating top-quality wines since 1985, when Ivan Bordon, the brand’s founder, registered the first-ever private wine brand in the region. The five-generation long family tradition was continued by his son Boris who is now turning over the estate and all his knowledge to his son Jan. This way, knowledge is being passed on through the generations and yields award-winning wines.
INSPIRED BY TERROIR
Our vines thrive in the mild coastal microclimate. Planted in Istrian hills and valleys, we take advantage of the diverse soil composition of our different vineyards. As a result, Istria is considered one of the most suitable for making wines that last for decades. Staying true to our organic approach, the vines are planted incredibly sparsely, giving them enough space for producing the highest quality grapes.
STRIVING FOR PERFECTION
Our wines have received numerous gold and silver medals, and some of them have also become champions at domestic and international wine competitions and festivals. These awards confirm our quality and encourage us to do good work and strive for ever higher results. The most excellent recognition is the satisfied customers who appreciate our wines and always like to return.
ARCHIVE WINE CELLAR
Our archive cellar allows storing wine in ideal conditions, thus retaining its quality. With a wide range of high-quality wines, you have the opportunity to taste the past wines in the archive, dating anywhere from five or ten years ago to 1985 to the very beginning of the Bordon brand.
The estate is located near the Rižana river in the vilage of Dekani. The long grain milling heritage is still visible from the renovated Old mill museum part of the estate. Because of our busy shedule we ask that you, like allways book your visit in advance.
