Zsolt Sütő started to cultivate 12 hectares of vines near the village Strekov in Slovakia in 2002. In 2009, he converted his plots to sustainable farming. The region’s microclimate ensures a long optimal ripening season as the temperature is moderated by the Danube river. The top layer of soil consists of clay-loam, which lies above the marine sediments, sandstone and limestone veins.
Zsolt grows indigenous varieties from the Carpathian Basin such as Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Blauer Portugieser, Blaufränkisch and Saint Laurent. Zsolt cultivates his vines by hand and mainly trains them as bush vines in order to force their roots to go deeper making them less sensitive to drought.
In the cellar at Strekov 1075, wines ferment spontaneously in barrels and open vat fermenters without any intervention and avoiding the use of sulphur as much as possible. Zsolt uses both traditional and experimental methods such as skin maceration, long lees contact or ageing under flor.
