About the winery

Šatov native Radim Braun, who has been making wine since 1998, bought a seven-metre-deep and 300-metre-long historic cellar (with preserved dates from 1872 and 1880) with his brother in a Šatov cellar alley a few years ago. After renovation, this cellar now includes a new pressing room, a tasting room and an apartment with accommodation for six people. In 2003, Radim Braun and his wife Eva planted a vineyard of 0.14 hectares in the Skalka area near the Painted Cellar. Since 2016, they have also been harvesting Müller-Thurgau from the lower terrace on the excellent Peklo track on the Austrian border. They still buy some of the grapes from vine growers in Znojmo. Production is a combination of traditional and modern methods, i.e. those that the technology of a small hobby winery allows. The white wines are produced by controlled fermentation in glass, plastic, stainless steel and acacia barrels. Of the blue varieties, the winery processes only one variety at a time. For red wines, malolactic fermentation takes place and the wines are aged for at least a year in a wooden barrel. Five-hundred-litre acacia barrels should soon be more widely included in the white wine production process as well, for fermentation and longer resting on fine lees. The annual production volume has risen to around 5 000 litres (almost everything is bottled on the modern line in Dobšice Lahofer), and the continuous growth in production should stop somewhere around the 20 000 bottle mark. The couple are therefore planning to convert an older barn in Šatov into a production facility. Every year, the Brauns take home gold medals from local exhibitions, especially for the Pinot Blanc variety, with the 2014 vintage being a very successful Hibernal, for example. The winery is a member of the Šatov Winegrowers' Association and according to the regular schedule, the cellar is also open for free visitors during the season.
