New podcast with Roman: About the suffering of the vineyard manager and wine coronavirus

After this year, most people agree: We all remember better years than in 2020. And so is our winegrower Roman Slouk. The latest episode of Sonberk's podcast (sorry, just in Czech) has been planned for a long time. However, it was slowed down by a demanding harvest and then another state of emergency. Yet it is finally here and perhaps even more nutritious than it would normally be. And it is the most honest episode. It summarizes all the sorrows of the viticultural life and what is so beautiful about his work.

To sum up this year's harvest, Roman says that the first half was great and the second half that "the winegrower will either get drunk or say that it is nature," he evaluated the period when it rained into the grapes and some of them it was not possible to use. In the latest podcast, Roman is passionately talking about how nice it is to watch the vineyards' development all year round. But also the fact that at some point one has to say that some things will not be affected. "The cellar master often has the opportunity to direct the development of wine, but me in the vineyard very little."

Roman connects these words with the latest diseases affecting the wine. While some of them are gone, new and new are emerging. "Similarly, the fight against them looks like how people fight coronavirus today," said Roman. He returns to his full beginnings at Sonberk in the podcast and describes how he takes care of the vineyards and what it all entails during the year
