Ján Záborský’s winery, Pivnica Brhlovce is located in UNESCO village of Brhlovce. The cellar is
in one of the famous caves of Brhlovce, where in the 16th-century locals dug into the tuff
bedrock to create homes and shelters. In the past, this is where Ján's grandmother received
visitors, today it's where the wines ferment and age.
Ján produces low-intervention wines from grapes grown on the slopes of the caldera formed
by the eruption of the Sitno stratovolcano. The bedrock of tuffs and highly mineral soils
combined with the colder and more humid microclimate of this region provides the perfect
environment for lighter wines with a mineral spine and robust acidity. The production shows
wonderful variety between vintages as Ján believes in letting the wines ‘do their thing’, with
some years producing bone dry wines and other wines with a bit of residual sugar.
Ján’s total production is around 20,000 bottles a year.
All the wines are naturally fermented, unfined, unfiltered and with no or minimum sulphites
added before bottling. They're all vegan too.

Tasting Notes

Elegant and fresh Blaufränkisch 2019 – Wild
Beauty from an 50-year-old vineyard has a light
ruby colour. The aroma is dominated by fruit
tones of overripe plums and cherries,
complemented by white pepper and violets.
Fresh and harmonic acids. Elegant, complex and
medium-bodied body. Long and multi-layered
distinctive aftertaste with a touch of spice. Wine
intended for maturation in the archive.
The grapes fermented for 4 weeks in an open
vat. Subsequently, it went to 300 l and 200 l
French oak barrels, where it matured for 12
months. Then all the barrels were combined in a
stainless steel container, where the wine
matured before bottling for another 12 months.
