In 1934, Jožef Steyer laid the foundations of a homestead and a blacksmith’s trade with the support of his wife Marija. He dedicated his life to the blacksmith’s trade, as is still evident by the blacksmith’s chimney that we have preserved.
Their son Jožef later directed the family estate to agriculture and livestock farming. He was working abroad in Austrian vineyards and cellars, investing the hard-earned money into his estate.
Representing the third generation on the farm, Danilo transformed it into a viticultural and wine-producing estate. Danilo discovered his passion for wine, oenology and viticulture at an early age when he was helping his father at work in the Austrian vineyards.
Whilst furthering his knowledge of wine at the Biotechnical Faculty in Ljubljana, he met a fellow enthusiast, a student of viticulture, Magda, who had already devoted herself to studying the Traminer grape variety. With a lot of courage and with Magda’s help, Danilo decided to take the family estate down a different path. With a clear vision, youthful drive and confidence in themselves and their wines, Magda and Danilo slowly created their own brand.
Due to the wine-growing region, which provides excellent conditions for Gewurztraminer, as well as the exclusivity of this wine sort, Danilo and Magda decided to face the challenge that the Gewurztraminer presented … And so, became the House of Gewurztraminer.
