BOTTLE SIZE: 75CL
THE WINEMAKER: SLOBODNE
Slobodne (‘the free winery’) are a young and dynamic family-run winery focusing on natural expressions of their local grapes and their very own terroir. They are working on the same historic estate that once belonged to older generations of their family and that was recovered in the early 90’s following the tragic combination of WWII and then 40 years of communism in the region. The family have spent the last 25+ years rebuilding the ecosystem of the farm and eventually launched Slobodne in 2010. Eight years on, they are at the forefront of the natural wine movement in Slovakia and currently craft some of the most distinct wines in Europe.
100% Sauvignon Blanc 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 of their 350ha farm, where they tend to livestock and also grow poppies, barley, wheat, rapeseed, and more.
