Ján (Janny) Svetík comes from many generations of winemakers in Levice, in the Nitra wine region of Slovakia, characterised by its volcanic terroir. Janny has an old school approach when it comes to winemaking - he works by hand and lets time do it's thing, without modern machines or winemaking processes. He patiently waits, sometimes for years, for the right time to release a wine while it rests in barrel. The labels reflect this, showing the time passing, stroke by stroke.
This wine was fermented on the skins for a period of 3 weeks, then gently pressed and matured in old barrels for 8 months before bottling.
