About: Slobodne are a fascinating family-run winery going back to the early 20th century. They rebuilt their farm over the past 25 years following a 50-yr break due to the hardships of WWII and then 40 years of communism. Now run by two sisters and their two partners, they are making some of the most exciting skin-contact wines around today.
The concept of ‘Majer’ is a multi-vintage blend of the three main red varieties
that they farm. Ultimately the key word is balance, and a full expression of ‘Majer’ or the Slobodne ‘manor’ or estate. The label features images of the dream team, the four members of Slobodne. Clockwise from top left - Agnes, Andrea, Katerina, and Miso.
