We have been producing wines from the Nature series since 2015 for our red wines of the Frankovka, Alibernet and Pinot Noir varieties. They are characterized by a long maceration of the grapes and subsequent lying of the wine in oak barrels on all fermentation lees for a minimum of 12 months, without added sulphur dioxide. The awards that these wines have won have convinced us that this is the right way to exploit the full potential of the grapes and produce a wine of maximum originality. That is why we have applied this technology to part of the next harvest of white wines, namely Pinot Gris and Grüner Veltliner.
