The story of a tree

It waited for thousands of years for an opportunity to tell its story …

6500 years

So old is the material that has been hidden for thousands of years and waited to be found, and still remains the wood. 

Subfossil Forest

The starry sky that we all share indiscriminately inspires each of us and leads to pauses and contemplation. As it was in the past, so it is in the present, so it will be forever …

Subfossil Art - Anthony Douglas Cragg
In 2018, we succeeded in collaborating with Sir Anthony D. Cragg, the holder of many awards and the author of numerous world exhibitions, in the field of exploring the possibility of using this unique material.

The author designed and created a unique sculpture from subfossil oak plywood, 140 cm high.

Black Bone statue by Vlastimil Beránek
Vlastimil Beránek, a representative of the third glass generation in the Beránek family, also created a unique work from our subfossil wood: Looking back is sometimes surprising, because with increasing distance from the event, connections blur. The river of time flowed freely until it flowed into oblivion, “ perceives the history of events. An exception and a tangible memory, however, are the finds of non-petrified wood. Specifically, it is a subfossil oak, a rare and inspiring material from which the statue of Black Bone is created.

Q Mare Santo - Treasure of the sea

Get to know something special like subfossil oak is – first sparkling wine aged in the sea.

Tradition & Heritage - Born in the green hills of Collio
Why is our wine special? Our grapes ripen on high quality soil on the green hills of Goriška Brda in a small private winery with heritage and tradition where warm Mediterranean air and cold Alpine wind mix. They both caress and lash the grapes alongside an authentic techniques and recipe which is how it acquires its distinctive flavour.

Small private winery - Hand picked & selected grapes
In our family, we don’t believe in mass production. We do our work with love and passion which reflects on the quality of our wines. The grapes are harvested by hand, and only the best are selected for wine, which is submerged in the clean, blue Adriatic Sea. A year later, the Luxury sparkling wine Mare Santo® is born. We believe people should respect nature and nature will pay us back with its best.

Adriatic treasure - Why 30 meters under sea?
As commonly known, the sea, with its salt water, is extremely healthy and beneficial. And what is good for a man will without a doubt be also good for wine. The first bottles were submerged almost a quarter of a century ago, and since then, we have been continuously working on improvements, flavour, and bottles. Motion of the sea current at 30 meters of depth is keeping the sparkling wine vital and alive. The sea also gives many minerals to the sparkling wine through the cork, which give the wine a unique flavour. The efforts has most certainly paid off because our wine is exceptionally outstanding.
