The Krasno line showcases the indigenous grape variety Rebula, also called Ribolla Gialla.

Krasno Rebula is an elegant Ribolla Gialla with a firm structure and mineral notes of Brda. Krasno Red Blend is made from Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Krasno Merlot features the red grape prominently. Krasno Orange is a light copper with amber shades; an aroma of quince, ripe pear and baked “pituralka” pear from Brda; and hints of thyme with a distinct minerality and gentle, sweet tannins. Its Krasno Sauvignonasse is a white wine offering mineral freshness and a full body with complex aromas. Krasno Sparkling is a fresh and fruit-forward wine in a lemon-yellow light gold color with tiny bubble chains and a reserved, fruit aroma of green apple and citruses. Krasno, which means “beautiful” or “pretty” in Slovenian, is the namesake the highest village in Brda, where the grapes are grown with a long wine tradition.
