Making my own wine has always been my dream.
I don’t want to make the best wine in the world at all costs.
I want to make and make the best wine that is produced in our vineyards. This is where the potential of the new vintage arises.
Making wine means uniting. Connect the sun with the earth, a vineyard with a cellar, a tradition with the future, creative people with modern technology, traditional production with experiment or a region with the world. To bring together for us means to create a new value that ultimately brings joy and pleasure from each new experience and knowledge.
Wine needs time and we give it to him. What they can accomplish in two hours in some large-scale production takes several weeks. Modern white wine vinification at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks gives wines from our region freshness and rich aroma. Lying on sludge makes them richer. The overall character of red wines completes maturation in wooden barrels, whether large or classic barrique. Microoxidation and slow ripening is a key process for the quality of our red wines.
We believe that wine should express the uniqueness of the vintage and the country where it was grown. That is why we try to understand the microclimate of each vineyard by the most gentle and minimal intervention in wine production. In the cellar every wine goes its own way. Nature is slow in this, but all the more grateful. We are trying to produce wines with the “soul” of the vineyard and all of us, because just as well and with a little luck something extraordinary could happen. Production is classic, as wine has been produced for centuries, to the minimum extent free of oenological preparations. From the current technological advances, we mainly use rare, inert gases, which are our little helpers in our winemaking
My life is linked to growing grapes and making wine.
That is why I understand that if I want to create values for future generations, I must have my own vineyards.
NOVÁ VIESKA, SOUTHERN SLOVAKIAN WINE REGION
In a slightly hilly terrain with north-west orientation near the village of NOVA VIESKA, the soil is very diverse, clayey-sandy-calcareous. As I like to look into the future, besides old vineyards, I planted Burgundy and unique Slovak grape varieties from the first lady of Slovak breeding, Dorota Pospíšilová. I already look forward to diverse wines with a deep and mineral tone.
RÚBAŇ, SOUTHERN SLOVAKIAN WINE REGION
The hilly terrain near the village of Rúbaň charmed me with its vineyards, which are among the oldest in Slovakia. Southwest orientation, loamy-sandy-calcareous soil, old deep-rooted vineyards offer wines of larger size and mineral character. I would hardly find a better vineyard in this region.
VINOSADY MALOKARPATSKÁ VINOHRADNÍCKA REGION
Finding the perfect vineyards in this area and bringing them new life was worth the superhuman energy, but the result is worth it. Old vineyards in foothill areas give me a unique opportunity to grow traditional small Carpathian varieties. Stony and loamy soil made of small admixture of sand or small river stones gives the wines depth and mineral tone.
Our wines are the image of our vineyards and the terroir in which they are born.
They are produced with minimal intervention in the production process.
Awards from international competitions such as Vinalies Internationales Paris, Bacchus Madrid, Concours Mondial de Bruxelles, AWC Vienna and Prague Wine Trophy also show that we are heading in the right direction.
The terroir of Small Carpathians allows us to make white wines that have typical minerality and individuality. The region of Strekov gives us wines which are full of sun and fruitiness.
Traditional varieties but also Slovak new crossings, which you will not find anywhere else in the world, form the varietal composition of our red wines. In our portfolio you will find wines which have rich, elegant aroma and complex, full body and powerful taste.
The unique character, freshness and aromas of our rosé wines are gaining more and more fans every year. Our rosé wines have paved us the way to be the world´s top winemakers and have been collecting awards at international competitions for more than 10 years.
