The grapes are destemmed and foot stomped, and the juice ferments in 225 litre used oak barrels. This is some delicious glou glou juice with bright red berries and forest fruits. Zero sulfur added, unfined and unfiltered this is a wild and vibrant wine that delivers serious enjoyment.
Dlúhé Grefty, which translates as long rows, is run by Jaroslav Tesařík and his family in Mutěnice. Looking after 2.5 hectares of vineyards, with 1.5 hectares producing wine.
