Pinots. Well, mostly. Our vineyards sport a lot of them, but always complanted with local varieties, because that's how fate and necessity wanted it back then. It's really fun to watch in the vineyard: the dainty, neat French bunches ooze elegance already at this stage, right next to the Moravian hulk Gruner that's four times as big. I love to make worlds collide, so we simply harvest & process everything together, et voilá, the bilateral treaty of the year is born.
From 2018 onwards, all the White Label wines are field blends from old vines grown on a single vineyard (or two neighboring plots). In this case, Oplocenka & Achtele sites complanted with Pinot Gris, Blanc, Noir, Veltliner and Welschriesling. We chose our top vineyards to endow the wines with maximum longevity & genius loci, and use minimum skin contact (10% max and even that very rarely), in order to showcase this unique, beautiful material without a heavy orange-styled veil. Spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeast in a bigger old barrel from local oak or acacia wood, where it then lays undisturbed for ~2 years on its fine lees. No fining or filtration, no sulfur addition. The normal way, simply put.

"Milan Nestarec is not a winery — I always correct people when they say that. Milan Nestarec is ideas that just happen to be represented through wine. I'm not selling wine. I'm serving a worldview. Using wine as a medium. I could have chosen another one, but this one is so fun. And social. I'm 200% positive that the most important thing is the person who makes the wine. It’s not about a varietal, or a famous village in a famous region - because even those wines can get the bad karma of being massacred in the cellar. It's all about the name on the bottle. A name you can trust, because you know how the person works and that it's a style you enjoy. Where they come from and how they treat their vineyards." - Milan
