Josef Ressl (1793-1857) was particularly close to seafaring, and was brought to the territory of present-day Slovenia by his first permanent job from his native Czech Republic.
During his three-year service in Dolenjska, he made the first ship's propeller in the monastery forge in Pleterje; this year marks 200 years since the first experiments he made on the Krka River, and later on the Ljubljanica.
The Pleterje Carthusian Monastery, famous for its good wines, took part in Ressl's sparkling wine. They took the velvet variety, which resembles a forest berry in aroma, as a basis. Excellent sparkling wine with the smell of the forest.
