Mitja Sirk

Friuli-Venezia Giulia | Cormons

Mitja Sirk’s wine story opens with an extraordinary chapter. At age 11, with the encouragement of Josko Gravner, Mitja made his first wine. Over seven vintages, under the master’s eye, he refined his understanding of Friuli’s past and potential. With time and experience, he has narrowed his focus to one grape: friulano. He works with old vines, ponca soils, traditional trellising, and clean farming. In the cellar, he has moved away from extended skin contact, toward long lees aging and batonnage, for a style that is, in his words, “very clear and direct” and a voice that is distinctively his.

Mitja Sirk 2021 Collio Bianco Ca`Savorgnan

This wine is sourced from an 80 year old vineyard in Cormons called Ca'Cavorgnan, planted to a mere 320 vines. The vines are grown organically on the stony “ponca” soils of compacted sandstone and marl at 75 meters above sea level. This wine was fermented in just two, old barrique where it remained on the full lees for 8 months of elevage, before being bottled and allowed 12 months of resting before release. This is a marked departure in approach from Sirk's Bianco normale, lending a deeper and more textured terroir expression.
