Release of the 2014 wines!

Dear wine lovers! We are delighted to announce the release of the 2014 wines. Our 2014 wines are best described as fresh, fruity with sparkling acidity. The year of 2014 was quite challenging because the grapes did not get enough sun and the maturation process was very slow. The winemaker had to be very passionate with grapes and leave enough time for maturation, afterwards the wine rewarded with its beauty. Our wines offer bright aromas and freshness that we believe will appeal to all wine lovers. They have been awarded at major Slovak wine competitions. My favourite wines of the new release are Rhine Riesling Terroir Ruban, Chardonnay and Sauvignon. As well as other as dry white wine Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay-barique 2009 or semi-dry wine Sauvignon Cabernet Rose or red wines Blaufrankisch 2012 and Blauer Portugieser 2012 and Cabernet Sauvignon 2012. Cheers!

About VINO DIOUS

Vino Dious is a charming small winery with low volumes of production but with huge potential for growth. The viticultural life beneath the Small Carpathian Mountains was greatly influenced by the noble Pálffy Family and that is the history with which the winery relates to. We reside in a historical manorial wine cellar from the 17th century, which used to be a part of the Smolenice Castle. Here you can notice old arches that were carefully incorporated into our modern winery facilities. The term ‘Dious’ comes from the ancient name of Horné Orešany village, which was shaped by the Pálffy Family, representing Orešany's traditional quality of wine. This slogan has become our motto. Step by step we purchase new vineyards and in the future we would like to be absolutely self-supplied for our wine production. We perceive this as a necessity, as our goal is to make only quality wines of the highest standards. Our asset is, that we are a new company and we are up-to-date with wine making technology, carefully following current trends and the latest wine equipment.

The 2013 vintage was outstanding thanks to the grapes having a sufficient amount of sugar and an appropriate amount of acids. The 2013 wines will appeal to you, with their fresh fruitiness and crispness.
