Pleterje Charterhouse we cultivate 30 hectares of agricultural land.
Within the monastery’s walls are fruit trees, vegetable garden and
pastureland, while outside are vineyards, fields and meadows, and both
we work in the most ecologically-friendly manner. We produce fruit,
grapes, apple and pear saplings, raise sheep, bees and fish, produce
wine from grapes, fruit juice and brandy from fruits.|
our vineyards and wine cellar are located in the middle of the
Dolenjska region, our basic wine is cviček. This is a speciality of
Slovenian wine as it is made from traditional kinds of red and white
wines, with a low degree of alcohol and an agreeable acidity. Another
tradition of Pleterje’s wine cellar is our mass wine, a dry or sweet
wine created from chardonnay, pinot gris, kerner and welschriesling. In
good years we also make high-quality variety wines, predicate wines and
apple, plum and juniper berries create our natural brandies, which are
aged in Pleterje’s cellar in wooden casks and then bottled in various
sizes. Special among them is the Pleterje pear which grows inside the
bottle before being topped off with pear brandy, and our bitters, made
up of 49 different herbs in a fruit brandy.
the monastery garden there are many beehives. Besides floral and
chestnut honey, we also produce pollen, propolis, a honey liqueur and beeswax candles.
