Keep it natural, baby.
Created by nature, recreated by human. Like the climate, soil and location of the vineyards, Kobal Wines are exceptional and unique. They come from cooler climate area and they express varietal characteristics beautifully. Their wines narrate the most sincere story of nature’s creation and human creative intervention. The result of such harmonious relationship is the wine that enthrals all the receptors that serve taste and smell, even the most sensitive and sophisticated palate.
Born in Slovenia in 1977, Bojan Kobal started his career when he graduated as engineer in Food Science and Technology from the University of Ljubljana Biotechnical University in 1996.
Since 2002 Bojan has worked as a winemaker and wine judge and in 2004 he joined Angela Muir and her winemaking team at the famous Ptuj Winery (Pullus).
From the time Bojan joined the winery, Ptuj wines began receiving the highest honors. They won over 195 Grand Gold, gold and silver medals at competitions around the world, including San Francisco, Concours Mondial de Bruexelles; Concours Mondial du Sauvignon; AWC Vienna, Japan Wine Challange, Vinoforum; Vinalies; Mundus Vini, China Wine Awards, Selections Mondiales des Vins Canada;Decanter; Vino Ljubljana and Vino Slovenia. He is the most awarded winemaker in the Slovenia and beyond.
Bojan started his own Kobal brand in 2015. He continues to put the wines from the selected vineyards of Slovenian Styria (Štajerska) on the world’s wine map. The majority of his wines come from the vineyards located on steep slopes of Haloze that consist predominantly of marl and from the vines that average more than 35 years in age. All of site’s complex influences result in unique traits of their wine, 24 hours long (or even longer) cold maceration accentuates their fruitiness; they exhibit freshness and reflect the fingerprint of nature – a distinctive Štajerska terroir.
