Confirmed: Even the Young Winemakers like our wine!

Do you know what Young Winemakers like? In Sonberk hope that among other wines, ours do too. And results of the "Co chutná mladým" competition and conference organized by the Young Winemakers (Mladí vinaři) last week is three gold medals - the 2015 VOC Riesling, Sauvignon 2017 and our award-winning cuvée from Chardonnay and Pinot Gris.

Young winemakers are trying to bring the elements of modern viticulture to the Czech Republic as much as we do. They also concentrate mainly on dry wines and we want to move this trend together in the Czech Republic, "said our marketing director Dáša Fialová.

In addition to the three gold medals, one more thing made us happy. At the conference, Nathalie Mairesse, from France, came to give a lecture about how the wood of the barrel in which the drink matured influences the wine. It was a great for us because Nathalie works for the famous French coinage François Frères, who supplies barrels for us as well, in which we mature some of our wines. Our wine maker, Oldřich Drápal Jr., spent a lot of time with her, Nathalie tasted our wines, and everyone agreed that we are very happy about the cooperation and that it would continue.
