Milan Nestarec is not a winery — I always correct people when they say that. Milan Nestarec is ideas that just happen to be represented through wine.
I'm not selling wine. I'm serving a world view. Using wine as a medium.
I could have chosen another one, but this one is so fun. And social.
OUR LAND, OUR LIFE, OUR PLAYGROUND
I'm 200% positive that the most important thing is the person who makes the wine. It’s not about a varietal, or a famous village in a famous region - because even those wines can get the bad karma of being massacred in the cellar. It's all about the name on the bottle. A name you can trust, because you know how the person works and that it's a style you enjoy. Where they come from and how they treat their vineyards.
CHASING THE ESSENTIAL
Manual harvest, spontaneous fermentation. Slow gentle press. No fining or filtration, no gimmicks, no magic powders. Just a bunch of tanks and old barrels, grape juice and time. The normal way, simply put.
