Marek Uhnák of Pivnica Čajkov has seen it all. He studied viticulture, where they taught him all about chemistry, preservatives and all cool new industry stuff. After years of conventional wine production, he understood that if he wants to let the terroir fully express, the only way is the low intervention, the natural winemaking path. His vineyards are patches located in the forest where no ploughing of soil giving birth to beautiful meadows. The synergy of land, animals and plants is palpable.
Vulcanica #4 Pet-Nat is a Pet-Nat wine of Pesecká Leánka (Feteasca Regala), this vintage was blended with the still wine of Pinot Gris, (6 weeks on skins) and fresh must of vintage 2019, this was added to start the secondary fermentation in bottles. These lovely méthod non-traditional bubbles, as winemakers call it are full of life and joy. Peach and apricot notes with a hint of salinity and banging acidity. Wine is vegan. Tastes best shared with friends in the park or at home.
