Jean Michel Morel's wines

The 1993 vintage was the first vintage at the Kabaj homestead under his guidance. Jean Michel is particularly proud of his wine produced by the traditional Georgian method of wine storage in kvevris (amphoras).The white Cuvee, produced by this method, was first introduced on the market in 2008.
Jean Michel Morel is also a member of Xeloba Kartuli association (www.kvevri.org), which unites 25 wine producers who use the kvevri wine method. They share the interest of following the roots of Georgian wine making, trying to transfer this ancient tradition into modern viticulture.
"Soil structure and the climate in Slovenia are different from those in Italy and France, where I used to work. The magic of wine making is in fact to take advantage of this diversity, combining it with one's intuition in order to create wine which satisfies the wine maker himself."

Jean Michel Morel

Jean Michel was born in October 1966 in Antony, a part of Paris. His homeland marked significantly his life and his profession.
He grew up in the multicultural part of Paris and he spent the summers working near Bordeaux, where he encountered his greatest passion – the art of wine making. He gained knowledge, experience and discovered the secrets of viticulture in various French wine regions and cellars. Let us list only some of them: Chateau De Jau Rivesaltes near Perpignan in the south of France, the homestead of Michel Laroch near Languedoc Ruslon and the homestead of Domaine Bordenave Longon near Bordeaux, where he excelled as the main cellarman.
He continued his professional life working in the wine cellar Borgo Conventi in neighbouring Friuli, where he worked as the main cellarman for many years. His marriage to Katja Kabaj in 1989 finally made him settle down at the Kabaj homestead in Šlovrenc in Goriška Brda.
