“Slámové” is the Czech word for “straw”. This straw wine is made from 100% Frankova (Blaufrankish). The grapes are hand harvested and dried on straw palettes for a minimum of 4-6 months. They are pressed whole cluster over a period of 36 hours in a gentle, pneumatic press. The wine is matured in oak vessels.
