Making of: The grapes are hand-harvested together, manually sorted on a sorting table, destemmed and gently stomped. Spontaneous co-fermentation with indigenous yeast in open-top vats, then press and aging in bigger old barrels from local oak or acacia wood, where it then lays undisturbed for ~2 years on its fine lees. No fining or filtration, no sulfur addition.

Personality: the fiery spice of Blaufrankisch with a fine lift and noble touch of the Pinot Noir and flamboyancy of the Gris – a red that’s highly drinkable all while offering serious layers for thought that you’ll love to browse through for hours.

The Podfuck 2018has switched sides and it's time to call it what it is: a bloody great red! Roughly 60% Pinot Noir, 20% Blaufränkisch, 20% Pinot Gris who works as a diplomatic bridge between the PN and BF (aka the PN of the East, they say). All from our almost neighboring plots Zadní and Otáhal, picked and fermented together. The full cheating circle, you might say; but I actually see it as a continuity of this wine's story, a story of searching for elegance despite all my imperfections. Nestarec wabi-sabi. And I can't be happier with it - not another macerated PG that the world already has a lot of, but a unique red-white blend that wonderfully mirrors our Bílovice loess.

Hence the tagline: "Walk up to your own horizon" comes from an interview with the renowned artist Olafur Eliasson. I love how it reminds us that we don't need to be like anybody else or conform to others' norms. In wine as in life, we set our own KPIs...
