Our vision

For many years we grew vines in our garden and made wine for our own use. We liked our wines - they never gave us a headache and we never used pesticides or artificial fertilizers in the vineyard. Our dream was to establish a winery that could produce such wine in larger quantities. This brought us to the point where we decided to build a classic vaulted cellar to store our future production.


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.

Soil preparation

Once we decided to plant vines, it was necessary toprepare the ground for its planting. In the fall of 2015, we had 70 tons of cattle manure incorporated into the soil. The following year, we sowed green manure mix in the spring, which we plowed into the soil. In autumn, another 60 tons of farmyard manure were re-incorporated into the soil. In November 2016, a deep plowing was done on the entire plot to loosen and aerate the soil to a depth of 60 cm in the place where the vine grafts will take root next year.


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.

Care of the vineyard

The basis of our care for a young vineyard is maintaining the soil in a state of black fallow, i.e. regular loosening of the soil in the intermediate row and in the stem belt to suppress weed growth. The result was the maintenance of moisture in the soil despite droughts that recurred every year. A vineyard maintained in this way gives us great opportunities to grow healthy grapes and produce wine that "makes itself" - without chemical additives and artificial yeast.

Grape processing

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.
