“Viticulture and winemaking aren’t only a job, but a passion, charm, discovering, searching, never-ending route.”
Martin Krapež

Vipavska Krapez

The Krapež wine estate is a boutique, family owned winery in the village of Vrhpolje (close to Vipava). Martin took over the family business in 1987 and has been developing the winery ever since.

They are focused on extremely small yields (below 1kg per vine), making sure that only the best possible grapes arrive to the cellar so they can produce their structured and complex whites and reds.

Their vineyards are spread across 7 hectares of land and all the grapes are handpicked. All wines from the Krapež estate are made exclusively from their own grapes;

Lapor White (cuvee of chardonnay, pinela and rebula)

Cabernet Sauvignon
Lapor Red (cuvee of merlot and cabernet sauvignon)

Don’t miss Krapež’s LAPOR WHITE at the London Wine Fair!


Here’s what Mrs Caroline Gilby MW wrote about Lapor White:

Vina Krapež: Lapor Belo, 2010, 12.5%
A lovely rich golden-hued wine, bringing together two local grapes; Pinela (40%) and Rebula (20%), with the global traveller Chardonnay (40%). Fermentation begins in stainless steel, with the wine finished and matured in oak barrels for around a year. The combination of sleek Chardonnay with the fresh floral notes of Pinela and exotic fruit flavours of Rebula are beautifully harmonious, and all at a refreshingly drinkable level of alcohol.


And if Krapež‘s Lapor White wasn’t enough, you will be able to sample 9 more wines from the Vipavska region!

Looking forward to meeting you in London in May!

Warm greetings from sunny Vipavska,
