  • Description

    Description

    We are a family winery and farm in Zemianske Sady.
    We make wine strictly from the grapes harvested in our vineyards covering 17 ha while it is essential that wine-growing and wine-making techniques used are in harmony with the nature surrounding us. We only use ecological and biodynamic treatments for the vineyard. All of our wines ferment spontaneously without application of any artificially cultured yeast and we refuse all oenological additives that manipulate wine character. The ambition is to offer pure wines true to the quality of our terroir and good reputation of the Hlohovec wine region. The name of our wine underlines a concept of freedom in its countless forms and meanings, which defines our way of life!

    We are open guys looking forward to welcome helpers from abroad, to share time with us, help us around the winery, vineyard or farm. During harvest (septrmber, october) we prefer longer stay (few weeks), but it is not a rule. We are looking forward to hear from you.

    What else ...

    Zemianske Sady is a small village, accessible easily by bus from Bratislava. Not much culture around /we like to bring it here from time to time/, very good area for walks and biking. We are very close to river Vah. Closest city Hlohovec, Sered are 15 minutes by car, Bratislava (the capital of Slovakia) is 45 minutes, Vienna 2 hours, Budapest 3 hours drive. All is easily accessible by public bus as well.)
