Vino Marcinčák

Vino Marcinčák is a family winery founded in 1990. It is the largest Certified BIO winery in the Czech Republic with 110 hectares of vineyards under cultivation. It produces high quality white and red varieties, many with VOC designation. However, it is known as one of the top producers of “straw wine” within the world. The Winery is located in the wine sub-region Mikulov | Moravia.

Petr Marcinčák is the owner and current winemaker. He has been Czech BIO Winemaker of the Year for several years running, and is an active member of the prestigious Mikulov “Aliance Vinařů V8” (V8 Alliance) and the European Order of Knights of Wine.

This is 100% Welschriesling. The grapes were hand-harvested and dried on straw palettes for 4-6 months, then pressed for 36 hours in a gentle, pneumatic press. The wine was fermented up to 6.5 ABV and matured in neutral oak barrels. Slámové” is the Czech word for “straw”.

About Us

We’re John and Brenda Steinsky from PEI. John is a proud first-generation Czech Canadian. Since May 2018, he has served as an Honorary Consul for the Czech Republic in PEI and New Brunswick, also covering Nova Scotia and Newfoundland in an “acting” capacity. In addition to providing consular services to Czech nationals in these provinces, John was keen to promote “economic diplomacy” with Atlantic Canadians, by sharing Czech goods and services they otherwise might not have access to.

Beer and wine seemed like good fits given the proliferation of craft brewing in the Maritimes and local interest in "new old-world wines." Czech wine is often described as "the best wines you’ve never heard of." We’re hoping to change that!
