Always be yourself, unless you can be a troublemaker. Then always be a troublemaker.
Me in a bottle. Classics. Symbol. Trust and hope.
Neuburger & friends.
Slovenské, Žižkov. Loess. A true heart of Nestarec vineyards, this site is the birthplace of many of our signature wines, including this one.
TRBLMKR is my long-standing mission to find the true identity of Neuburger in our area. This grape is a bit of a Cinderella, a historically typical for our area but nowadays often overlooked. It has low yields, is rather prone to rot and doesn't like modern winemaking, as its neutrality can yield to other varieties very quickly, so it's not something for those looking for fast and easy results. But if you're patient, it can age beautifully and marvelously express its place. Dedicate enough time and space to this wine, it's worth it.

The White Labels are our top-shelf wines, the pinnacle of our work. Hailing from our most interesting micro-locations, oldest vines, and often field blends. This unique energy is preserved by the gentlest treatment and several years of undisturbed ageing in our cellar. Minimal interventions, maximum genius loci.
These wines speak about our quest for elegance in all our imperfections. Purism inside and out. Pouring in our hearts as well as all our long-term work and know-how, something I'm proud of. All that is reflected on the labels. When working on them, we took out elements that weren’t essential until only my signature and the name of the wine remained. Because, as they say, perfection is achieved not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.
I don't wanna look like a natural-born sage - it took me some time to get there. My journey, like many others, has been paved with gold engravings and curlicues, like on a fancy tombstone. “Nestarec, a wine for funerals”, as a friend of mine dubbed it back then. Oops. But I remember that period fondly - it's a part of my evolution. No regrets, like in that famous Edith Piaf song.
