Viticulture: Organic (noncertified)
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 and Southwest 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 oftheir 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 two weeks in large 1000L vats (no skin contact for either). After fermentation the two wines were blended and transferred
to a Spanish clay amphora (a ‘tinaja’) where they stayed for 8 months or so. The wine was racked once, and bottled in May 2019. Unfined, unfiltered, unsulphured.
