Fermentation finishes in bottle over a 2 month period as a petnat. The wine is unfiltered, unfined, has zero sulfur added, and is not disgorged.
Milan Nestarec has quickly become the star winemaker of the Czech republic during the time we’ve been working with him. His wines display so much life, vitality, and originality, that they have become very sought after all over the world in a very short time.
Milan’s father planted 8 hectares of vines in 2001 across two wine growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. Milan studied winemaking with Aleš Kristančič of Movia, where he learned a great deal about the delicate art of making skin fermented white wines. No herbicides are used and the vines are worked organically. He believes that gentle methods of growing grapevines and grape processing gives the best result. All wines in the cellar are fermented spontaneously and they are usually vinified in oak and acacia barrels.
