"Only quality grapes can be used to make quality and healthy wine."
About our winery
I founded the Víno Šmelko winery in 2013. I am a native of Dobšina (eastern Slovakia), who fell in love with the picturesque town of Svätý Jur at the foot of the Little Carpathians during his studies at university. We try to make our honest viticultural work felt in every sip of our wines.
The story of our vineyards
The soils at the foot of St. George are ideal for growing vines thanks to their sandy, granite subsoil. Our vineyards are spread over approximately two hectares and have a perfect orientation to the south. Riesling, Grüner Veltliner , Welschriesling , Roter Silvaner and Burgundy varieties thrive particularly well on them. They were planted in the 50s and 80s of the 20th century. We buy blue varieties from local St. George growers, thanks to which you can also enjoy Frankovka, Merlot, or the very popular Alibernet.
The secret of our wine
Interventions in our wines are minimal - from grape processing, fermentation, through the entire process of wine production, to filling bottles. For the production we use high-quality, (by us) honestly processed, first-class grapes, harvested by hand.
Our annual production is about 5000 bottles.
