Sonberk´s podcast nr. 3 takes you from Hustopeče to South Africa

The third part of the Sonberk´s podcast Between the Rows has been released today on all possible podcast platforms. You can describe it differently: It's about Hustopeče, women, a lot about traveling, and it also asks a lot. Many questions revolve around the unusual art of sabrage. Libuše Vrbová, today´s guest from the U Vrbů winery, combines all of this.

We invited her for many reasons. As a representative of the young wine generation, 27-year-old Libuše tries to take over modern trends that are important for good wine into a family business, so we at Sonberk are all about. And we also wanted to give space to women winemakers in the podcast.

"There are more and more women in the wine business in the Czech Republic, but there are still far fewer of them than men. It's similar to female chefs. Both professions are very time-consuming. When it's the time of harvesting, you have a lot of things to do from morning to evening. Still, historically it was assumed that women take care of the family and household," explains Dáša Fialová, who takes care of marketing here, what´s the point.

Today, everything has shifted, and there are more and more women in the Moravian wine business. Libuše herself led her first winemaking process five years ago when she was 22. In the podcast, she talks about how her father gradually gave her more and more confident about her town, Hustopeče, which according to her, is a gateway to the wine region, Moravia. But she herself recently researched winemaking in a rather exotic destination, in the winter she spent almost two months at vintage in South Africa.

In the podcast, she also added one more interesting fact. Libuše is the champion of the Czech Republic in sabrage, so you will learn about all the ways to get a plug from a bottle.
