Vineyards: The grapes come from their very own “Lopata” and “Stavný Háj” vineyards in their town of Zemianske Sady. The Hlohovec wine region’s history dates back to the 14th century when planting rights were first granted. The vineyards have a South andSouthwest exposition and have
vines ranging from 10 to 35 years years old. They practice beekeeping in the parcels and encourage a wide amount of biodiversity. Their 17 hectares of vines form a small part of their 350ha farm, where they tend to livestock and also grow poppies, barley, wheat, rapeseed, and more.
Vinification: Both varieties were direct pressed, and fermented separately for about five weeks
in clay ‘Tinajas’ (Spanish amphoras). After fermentation the wines were blended and transferred to both ovoid eggs and steel tanks for 8 months. The wine was racked once, and bottled in May 2020. Unfined, unfiltered, minimal sulphite addition.
