Milan Nestarec may be the name on the wine label but his wines are more than the sum of one person’s efforts to make authentic Moravian wine. Milan’s winemaking journey began as far back as he can remember. Due to wine’s presence in his family’s daily lives Milan knew he was destined to be a winemaker. Born in the biggest wine growing village in the Czech Republic where every family made enough wine for their own consumption, his family’s foray into professional winemaking came after they were returned a plot of land that was seized by the the Communist regime during the Velvet Revolution in 1989. This prompted Milan’s father, Milan Sr. to pick up seasonal vineyard work in Germany. Through the connection of the German winery they were able to purchase second hand equipment to ramp up their production and continued buying small plots of land one at a time, despite Milan Jr’s plea for a computer. These acquisitions and increased volume of wine production led to Milan’s father entrusting him with all winemaking decisions at the age of 16.

If you’ve had the opportunity to follow Milan’s wines over the last few years you’d be hard pressed not to notice a gradual development of precision in his wines, which he attributes to his “essence over style” approach.

His youngster wines are all blends from estate organically grown fruit.The Youngster Red being a mix of Blaufrankisch, Cabernet Franc, Dornfelder. The fruit is all hand harvested, pressed, and spontaneously fermented from indigenous yeast in steel tanks. The wine is bottled unfiltered, unfined with no sulfur additions.

This is a youthful fresh drinking wine with just the right amount of structure and zip for a weeknight meal. With notes of beets, blueberry, cola, dark red florals and a dash of earth this is an extraordinarily versatile wine. This would be great with funky cheese and charcuterie, gamier meats, and mushroom dishes - exaclty the fare these colder months will be calling for. Jeremy Hernandez & Bruno Sant'Anna
