After graduating, Matija’s initial involvement at the company was as a technician. He was responsible for managing the 600 hectares of vineyards, a very difficult and time-consuming task. Once the new cellar opened in 1967, he was entrusted with running it and overseeing the winemaking technology. To this day, he is an exceptional wine taster and assessor. Over the years, he has devoted his immense knowledge and experience to making quality wines. To this day, his energy and enthusiasm still inspire his winemaking colleagues.
