Nestled amid the picturesque Goriška Brda hills, the family-run Kabaj winery – a four-time honoree as one of the top 100 wineries in the world by Wine & Spirits Magazine – has found a new way to optimize their operations with KRONOTERM heat pumps.

Sustainable Cooling for Exceptional Wines

All wines are aged for at least a year in French barrels, followed by several months in bottles, allowing them to develop their distinctive flavors. After this period, they are ready to travel around the world, especially to the USA and Asia. Given the winery’s commitment to organic production, maintaining a constant cool temperature becomes a substantial energy challenge. As a solution, two ADAPT heat pumps were installed to cool approximately 60,000 bottles of wine annually, while also delivering warmth to the restaurant and guest rooms.

Simultaneous Heating and Cooling

KRONOTERM heat pumps go beyond cooling; they provide efficient heating for rooms via radiators and supply domestic hot water. By capturing and utilizing the heat generated during the cooling process, the heat pumps enhance overall energy efficiency. The recovered heat is used to warm water, with additional heating applied only when necessary. This ensures the six double guest rooms, restaurant, and family living quarters are always comfortably warm, with a steady supply of hot water for guests.
