I was born on May 10, 1986 into a family with a long tradition of viticulture. My grandfather from Strážnice in Slovácko once moved to Znojmo and started making wine there. The other one lives in Velké Pavlovice and, as a cooper, is in charge of the production and repair of wine barrels. My father has also been involved in all phases of wine production so it might only be a natural outcome that he became the director of the newly established company Znovín Znojmo shortly after the privatization of the former Moravian wineries and he is still there today.
I have been helping in the vineyards since I was a child, but, at that time, I saw only the hard work surrounding this art. Maybe because I could not drink wine yet at that time. I found out that the vineyard not only means hard work all year round, but also the pleasure of tasting its fruits, when I enrolled in the only Czech wine high school in Valtice.
In 2015, my friend and I founded Navajn - a project originally created to offer tours and wine tasting in Znojmo and around. We also started producing wine under this brand. It was a great ride and both of us invested our hearts as well as all our time and we enjoyed it. I was, however, always drawn to the vineyards. I wanted to tighten the established idea of making wines with maximum expression of terroir. At the end of 2018, I left the company and founded my own winery. I dreamed of spending more time making wine and having my own grapes which needed all of my time. Finally, I launched my first wine in 2019.
