Milan Nestarec is a young grower based in Moravia, a region in the Czech Republic that lies just 15km from the northern Austrian border. Milan’s father planted the 8 hectares of vines in 2001 across two wine growing municipalities: Moravský Žižkov and Velké Bílovice. This region has a lot in common with Austria, from the loess soils to the grape varieties that flourish here. Milan is a member of the ‘Autentisté’ group - a community of winemakers making authentic wines that strive to express the true character of the land. No herbicides are used in his vineyards and the vines are worked strictly organically. Milan also vinifies everything with indigenous yeasts and bottles without fining or filtration. TRBLMKR 100% Neuberger. The grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed and the juice ferments in 600 and 1000-liter 3-year-old wooden barrels. The juice ferments for about 1 month with occasional piegeage and indigenous yeast fermentation. The wine is left in the same barrels for elevage for about 19 months with occasional battonage. The wine is bottled unfiltered, unfined, and with zero sulfur added.
