Svätý Jur - Little Carpathians Wine Region
We are based in small Slovak town Svätý Jur. Our vineyards lie on the southern and southeast slopes of the Little Carpathians, which are covered with light soil full of stones from granite bedrock. Agricultural machines suffer but vines have been doing very well for centuries. The soil horizons are shallow and barely cover the massive granite core. Originally, these areas were covered with oaks and ironwoods. Winegrowers deforest them, plant with vineyards and change the scenery of the Little Carpathians. Climate conditions are very favorable thanks to the location and topography of the Mountains. The back of the Little Carpathians play two important roles. On the one hand, it protects the vineyards from the northwest cold wind, and on the other hand it provides mild slopes oriented to sun.
V I N E Y A R D S
Healthy grapes form healthy vineyards.
We grow grapes in an ecological and sustainable manner that is friendly to the nature. Lifeful soil, biodiversity and nature balance is the foundation of a healthy vineyard and the quality of the grapes. That's why we do not use herbicides or systemic chemistry. We minimize agro operations and cultivate the vine in harmony with nature.
C E L L A R
We add nothing and remove nothing.
We make wines traditionally with minimal interventions. We work only with healthy grapes. We do not use any additives. All our wines are fermented spontaneously on the skins. The maturing takes place on the lees in oak and acacia barrels in an old Renaissance cellar. We do not fine or filter our wines and we use only a little sulfur.
