Slobodne is a young family winery in Majer Zemianske Sady in Slovakia. They are working on the same historical winery that once belonged to their ancestors and was recovered in the early 1990s following the tragic combination of the Second World War and 40 years of communism in the region. The family has spent the past 25 years rebuilding the farm's ecosystem and finally launched Slobodné in 2010. They are one of the leading wineries of the natural wine movement in Slovakia.
The 17 hectares vineyards are located on the small hills not far from the Vah River. The plots where the vines are planted in Slovakia are much further north than in other European wine producing countries. The wines have very nice acidity and the taste of the fruit is very present. Bees are kept and herbs are grown to promote a healthy soil climate, which they consider paramount to making great wine. They are dedicated to minimal intervention winemaking and only grow varietals that are historically from the area and suited to the climate: Lemberger Blue, Grüner Veltliner, Rhine Riesling, Red Traminer, Devin, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Alibernet.
