Country: Czech Republic
Varietals: Pinot Noir, Blaufrankisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc
Winemaking: manual harvest, sorting table, wild yeast only. The reds often use carbonic maceration, the whites get a varying, but usually rather small, degree of short skin contact. Aging in old oak and acacia barrels of different sizes, minimal racking, no fining, no filter, no sulfur.
About the Family: The first vines that the Nestarec family started to work with grew on a tiny plot that was returned to them as restitution in the early 1990s. The winery went professional in 2001. Milan’s father Milan Nestarec Sr. entrusted him with all the winemaking when Milan was barely 16 years old (which makes Milan quite an experienced young winemaker now at only 33 years of age).
