Orange Wolf is a unique and complex orange wine created from white grapes. This wine was created by an equal connection between Rizling of Wallachia and Veltlín from the old vineyard in Vlčej valley. The wagon crawled on the open skins with which they remained in contact for another ten days. The Veltlin and Devin grapes were left to ferment in the barrels, to which they added about 15% of the hand-blasted berries. The weather in 2016 was characterized by the rapid but premature arrival of spring, after which frost came. The summer was sunny and nice, but in August again rain occurred, as a result, the ripening berries cracked.
The family is passionately creating natural wines exclusively from their own, organically grown grapes of Slovak ingenious varieties. Their winegrowing journey started in 2007 when they re-planted an old vineyard that was returned to their family. Their domain is located in a charismatic place under the sun, on a site of a former monastery, in the shade of old chestnut trees. They care deeply about the nature and the environment in which it exists, trying to live in harmony with it. They are growing chestnuts and various fruits and are just about to start keeping bees and breed farm animals to bring more life and balance to the estate. In the cellar they strive to act merely as guides; their wines are left to mature at their own pace and according to their unique character, reflecting varietal, vintage, and terroir specifics. As a result, they hope to find harmony and elegance in the bottle. Their wines, mainly of red varieties, are full-bodied, yet subtle and gentle, with crisp and charming character of northern terroirs.
The Orange Wolf is a balanced cuvée of Welschriesling and Veltliner from an old vineyard in Wolf’s valley and a young Devín from the rose mountain. This wine is certified Organic, biodynamic, spontaneously fermented, unfiltered, unfined and without any addition of sulphites. Enjoy the characteristic, extravagant taste of this orange or rather amber wine!
