As beginners, we did not have enough information about permits for planting larger areas. However, since the village of Kráľová pri Senec was not registered as a wine-growing region, it was not easy to obtain such a permit. We managed to get the planting rights in 2016. Right in the spring of 2017, we planted our first hectare vineyard. A year later, our village of Kráľová pri Senec became one of the registered wine-growing villages of the Malokrapat wine-growing region.
In May 2017, everything was ready for the planting of 3,600 vines. We carried out the planting with a tractor with GPS coordinates in order to achieve the most accurate planting possible. Despite a severe drought in the summer of that year, the vine took over with a 99 percent success rate.
We only harvest grapes by hand. The white grapes are transported to the pneumatic press immediately and are directly pressed together with the stem. In the case of red grapes, the grapes are first separated from the stems on a mill destemmer. Subsequently, the grapes are fermented for 7-12 days. Only then do the red grapes go to the press, where they are carefully pressed.
