A super versatile wine with food. From seafood to spicy dishes. Grilled seafood, chicken and cheese all brilliant pairings.
Two sisters, Agnes and Katarina, decided to leave their life in the city (Bratislava) as well as their work as accountants and lawyers to return to the family farm and become full-time farmers and winemakers, along with their two partners Andrea and Miso (their logo is a representation of this lifestyle change). One year later they started Slobodne, which means 'freedom' in Slovak, or 'free winery', in homage to the estate's long and fractured history.
The four of them (now in late 30's) are still running the farm and making the wines, and are continuously pushing boundaries in their experiments with natural wines. They have a particular focus on various skin-contact wines, and were recently the first winery in Slovakia to start working with Georgian qvevri and Spanish Tinajas.
