Slobodné Vinárstvo (“free winery”) has overcome great adversity to make some of Slovakia’s most exciting wines, finally available in Ontario. We know you might not have had many (any) Slovakian wines, but we are here to tell you they are utterly delicious.
Agnes Lovecka, her sister Katarina Kuropkova, and her husband, Miso Kuropka along with their parents, reclaimed their family’s estate, Majer Zemianske Sady, back in 1997 and have been making wine as Slobodné Vinárstvo since 2010. This land had been farmed by the family since the early 20th century until it was put under state control during communist rule and abandoned. Despite nice careers and comfortable city lives in Bratisklava, the sisters eventually felt the pull of the estate and its connection to their family heritage. This would be both a new adventure for the sisters and a new chapter in the family’s history. Vibrant juicy reds and textured vivid oranges. Yes please!
