Stara skola = old school. This is old school winemaking as well as from Herzanovi's oldest grapes. This means a blend of white varieties and only a touch of skin contact (a few days to one part of the wine, the other part direct press). Giving a vibrant fresh white with lots of layers and a touch of herbacousness. A great food wine.
Herzanovi is another family winery that we love to feature. This one's located in the village of Kobylí, Czechia. Where they farm around 4ha of vines organically and are in conversion to certified biodynamics (they co-founded the Czech-Slovak branch of Demeter). They work mostly with typical local varieties that work so well in Moravia (Blaufrankisch, Sylvaner, Gruner Veltliner, Cabernet Moravia). This family is really making great strides with their focus on natural wines including nice use of quervi and amfora buried in the garden. They recently started doing pet-nats which we had and absolutely flew off the shelves so stay tuned for the next vintages.
