Slobodne is a winery and farm about an hour's drive east of Bratislava, with a long & facinating history - the family lost the farm during WW2 and then again under communist rule, but eventually managed to reclaim & start restoring their land in the early 90s. It is a mixed farm where they grow poppies, barley, wheat, rapeseed and more, as well as keep livestock.


For this wine Gruner Veltliner & Sauvignon Blanc grapes were fermented on skins for 7 days with the addition of wild hops from the woods on the estate.
