Boys And Girls And Heroes
Something like our own “Brutal” – a platform for all our craziness/experimentation/fun. On one hand, we “stripped” our classic wines to their essential and continue to work on the little details to make them more and more pure and true to our land with each new vintage; on the other, we still have some beautiful but diverse material and opportunity to play with it.
The future of Atyp can hold many different things – vineyards we've newly acquired that have a varietal composition outside our usual focus, for example. Or a micro-lot, or a new method, or anything really. (Yay!) Atyp is a platform for our own discovery – we are lucky enough to have the space to try, learn and wonder. No borders for Atyp. Anything is possible. Who decides where the limit is? Who decides what is and isn't over the edge?
The name and the label are a spontaneous affair, too – we were considering solutions both wild and tamed, but then everything fell into place as I like it. I had this Atyp sticker on my desk for a while, ever since it dropped from a typography book by Petra Dočekalová. One day, on a whim, I stuck it to a nearby unlabelled bottle, and then basically every visitor who came and saw it asked me whose wine it was. So I thought, ha, I'll make it mine! Luckily for me, the true Atyp typeface author & owner Tomáš Brousil of Suitcase Type Foundry agreed to let me have a bit of his AtypTM too. So there you go, the total package: spontaneous wine, spontaneous label. Ideal for all you atypical people out there, and guys like me who have a hard time containing their passion within ranges and limits.)
