Polehňa wineryPolehňa winery was established back in 1989 based on the several generations of family experience with wine production. We started with only 0,5 hectares of vineyards and had grown to current 8 hectares of very fruitful land. We have gradually grown from producing wine in the barrels to the bottled production and since 1999 all our production is bottled. Our current productions ranges between 50 000 – 70 O00 bottles per harvest. All our wines are in the appellation of “attributive wines” (přívlastková vína) depending on grapes maturity. We use only our own grapes and all our vineyards are located in the area of Blatnice pod Svatym Antoninkem village, facing South or Southeast.
Production – Since 2005 harvest we have not used any sugar to add to our wine juice and all our wines are in the appellation of “late harvest” as a minimum. Our specialties are white wine types Chardonnay and Sauvignon and from red wines types Pinot Noir, Blauer Portugieser. We are not going to expand our vineyards at present time but rather focus on the quality of our grapes and wines. We do invest into modern technologies and agricultural vehicles and we do not have any permanent employees, only seasonal workers. Wine production takes place in new facility utilizing all new technologies.
During harvest we transport our grapes in the plastic crates of 25 kg each which are immediately transported from the vineyards and thanks to the fact that the transportation does not take longer than 30 minutes we are able to avoid formation of volatiles acids and other undesirable substance in the wine juice. For grapes grinding we use very gentle machines, for mashed grapes transportation we use olive pump and pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place in the stainless steel tanks of 2500 and 1250 liters using controlled fermentation process. Some wines are then further stored in the barrels for several months. When wine is ready to be filtrated and bottled we use modern bottling line with protective atmosphere without oxygen to keep wine fresh and with full bouquet for long time. Whole process of bottling, plugging and labeling is taking place without human intervention. Even though we know that human factor plays critical role in the wine production, there are some processes, which can be replaced by modern technologies in recent days.
We just need to be sensitive on how modern technologies and traditional methods are combined.
Under our brand to produce wines of the best quality, while using our own grapes from the area of Blatnice pod Svatým Antoninkem. Always be open to listen to our customers and adjust to the new interesting trends. But never compromise the uniqueness of our wines and terrain.
