On a high, sunny slope of Čaven, above the village called Grace, Svetlik family planted a vineyard of Rebula, grown in a nature-friendly way and the grass around the vines is mulched and scythed manually. they use no herbicides or insecticides and they take great care of a natural symbiosis. Svetlik family said: the harvest  is an holiday, because our friends and their families come and join us and help us harvest the ripe grapes and remove the stems by hand.

The growing of Rebula is based on an over 200-year tradition in which the wine is enriched by allowing for fermentation together with  grape skin. Wine is fermented only with indigenous yeasts, developed on grapes.It's aged in selected oak barrels with complete biological de-acidification and mixing of lees and is not filtered.

The weather conditions in 2012 for the grapes to mature were favorable, without any stress and with a long and dry autumn. The maceration process took 11 days. The wine was aged in 2,500 litre Pauscha barrels made of oak from Slavonia.
