Beti and Dare Derenda are relatively newcomers to Kras. Forever smitten by Kras, in 1996 they bought an old hose and a plot of land in Hrusevica. The work on rebuilding the house and planting the vineyard were going on at the same time. With every stone set into the right place, with every vine planted into the soil their connection to Kras deepened. The home was built, the vines grew stronger. In 1999 the first vintage was ripe for picking. With a lot of help from their winegrowing friends they overcame many a barrier and soon they were able to present their first vintage - pure Teran. Today, they are already transferring their experience and knowledge to their daughter Nina and the son Andrej. Both like to join Dare and Beti in vineyard work, in the wine cellar, and at wine presentation events.
