Radikon is located at Oslavia (Province of Gorizia) in in the Collio Goriziano zone of Friuli-Venezia Giulia in Italy, on the border with Slovenia. It was established by former winemaker Stanislao “Stanko” Radikon, who died aged 62 in 2016. Extended fermentations and long aging are hallmark of this producer; in 1995 Stanko returned to his grandfather’s methods, beginning to give his white wines seven days of skin contact during fermentation to obtain more intensity of flavour and colour. As he experimented further the duration of macerations and fermentations, and of aging, increased. These methods allowed for sulphur additions to be, depending on the wine, eradicated or minimalised. The design of the bottle is unusual, in either 500ml or 1 litre, and the bottle neck and cork are narrow to replicate the proportions of a magnum, which is generally considered to be the optimum format for ageing. The 11-hectare vineyard is located on very steep slopes which are difficult to work. Therefore, all processes are carried out by hand and no pesticides or chemicals are used.
