About the Event
A TASTY COMBINATION OF AMAZING WINE AND GOOD MUSIC.
Gönc winery is a family tradition going back to the year 1936 when Peter Gene’s great grandfather
built their first wine cellar and planted the vineyard around it in the small town of Dobrovnik in
Slovenia. After World War II his grandfather moved to the city Ptuj where he started working in the
Ptujska Klet – Ptuj wine cellar as a cellar cleaner and worked his way up to head winemaker and
CEO of the oldest winery in Slovenia now know as Pullus. Peter’s father also worked at the same
winery but on the side, he also planted 24 acres of vineyards to keep up the family tradition (now 28
acres total). When Peter came of age they built a new cellar in Ptuj and started Gönc again. Peter is
the 4th generation of winemakers and winegrowers in the family.
A story of Hugarian barrels and rock ‘n’ roll tunes.
Our passion and love for wine consists of 136 dots. Each dot represents one liter of wine from a special oak barrel holding 136 liters, also called Gönc. The central dot on the label indicates the wine variety and represents the last, 136th point on the label. Number 136 is the motiv of Gönc Winery’s visual identity.
