Štajerska Region of Slovenia

THE HOME OF EXCELLENT SLOVENIAN WINES

The wine-growing district of the Štajerska Region is the largest in Slovenia, with the Ljutomer-Ormož Hills in Prlekija being its north-eastern part. This is the land of hundreds of terraced hills, wind-rattles (klopotec), thermal springs and spas, and rich cuisine, as well as cultural, natural and ethnological heritage.

It represents the centre of the Slovenian wine-growing tradition dating back to the 4th century bc. During the Crusades, knights named the place after their homeland – Jerusalem – due to excellent wines and hospitality of the locals. The wishing bell in the Our Lady of Sorrows church reminds us of them.

The Ljutomer-Ormož Hills captivate with their idyllic landscape. You rarely see the beauty and friendliness of nature so well combined with the kindness and hospitality of people as in the Ljutomer-Ormož district. This vibrant land has given its character to the local people.

WHAT IS THE SPECIAL FEATURE OF WINES OF THIS SMALL WINE-GROWING AREA, FROM WHICH IN MEASURED QUANTITIES THE BOTTLES ROAMED TO EUROPEAN COURTS IN THE PAST CENTURIES?
The most favourable climatic conditions with more than 200 days of sunshine a year, cold nights and soil rich in minerals of the once Pannonian Sea, which curved around the current wine-growing hills as islands and deposited fertile, mineral-rich layer of soil – a mixture of sand and clay perfect for viticulture.

All the vineyards are on steep slopes, covered with grass, which prevents soil erosion and facilitates vine cultivation.

There are many grape varieties growing on this soil and thriving in the favourable climate. Due to the favourable warm and dry Pannonian climate, in addition to excellent harmonious dry and semi-dry wines and varieties, the land also offers premium semi-sweet and sweet wines of special qualities, such as late harvest, selection, grape selection, ice wine and dry grape selection (different levels of natural sugar content).


Merger of two large wine-making families

THE MARO WINE CELLAR IS LOCATED IN SLOVENIA, IN THE WINE-GROWING DISTRICT OF THE ŠTAJERSKA REGION, MORE PRECISELY IN THE LJUTOMER-ORMOŽ HILLS, FAMOUS FOR THEIR THOUSANDS OF YEARS OLD TRADITION OF WINE-MAKING AND IDEAL CONDITIONS FOR PRODUCING PREMIUM WINES.

Vineyards cover the most beautiful positions of the Ljutomer-Ormož Hills: Strezetina, Nunska graba, Hermanci, Ilovec, Mrzla polja – Jeruzalem, Železne dveri – Gresovščak in Strmec, near the famous Jeruzalem, and are considered to be in the top 3% of the best vineyard locations in the world. Hand-picked grapes provide the highest quality basis for producing excellent wines.

Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Yellow Muscat, Muscat Ottonel, Welschriesling, Riesling and a local variety called Furmint grow in these marvellous and fertile vineyards.

The MARO Wine Cellar represents the tradition of two established wine-making families from the 17th or 18th century: Mursa and Ozmec. Descendants of the two families: MAša Samec and RObert Ozmec continue the tradition of wine-making while respecting the natural features of excellent vineyard positions, preserving original characteristics of the grape varieties and taking good care of the wine through the process of maturation in the wine cellar.

Mursa and Ozmec are the brands of the MARO Wine Cellar and their selection offers high quality and premium wines and wines of special qualities. The wines are extremely aromatic, which is reflected in the luxury of fruit, floral and plant aromas in individual wines. In terms of taste, the wines are vibrant due to refreshing acids, enriched with an appropriate alcoholic strength, full-bodied and rich in extracts, harmonious and pleasantly drinkable.


The visual element of the surprise is the typographic play in the logos of both brands. From both lines below we can read the name Samec, which is today's name of the descendants of the Mursa family.
