This is orange, but not as we know it. The colour comes from prolonged yeast contact of 15 to 20 days at low temperature rather than skin contact. The wine opens up to red and black cherry fruit aromas with a peppery kick. Smooth textured with well integrated tannin and a lovely mouth-feel. Very complex, assuredly Pinot-y, with good body but quite fresh on the finish. Drinking this wine is an experience, one you will not have had before. A crazy idea, expertly executed.

The Stapleton-Springer Winery was founded in 2004. The former US Ambassador to the Czech Republic - Craig Stapleton and winemaker Jaroslav Springer created the winery. Jara has now been joined in the winery by his son Tomáš and there is a real energy to these wines. It is clear Pinot Noir became the family firm's dominant variety. The vineyards are worked organically and Pinot Noir makes up more than 75% of the vineyards but some Chardonnay, Saint Laurent and Blauer Portugieser are are also grown here making up a total area of 22 hectares.
