Zsolt Sütó cultivates 12 hectares of vines in the village of Strekov, in Slovakia. The vineyards are located on the terraces of Pohronska pahorkatina, featuring ponds and marshland that creates a unique microclimate. The top layer of soil consists of clay-loam, which lays above the marine sediments, sandstone and limestone veins. Deeper soil layers consist of yellow and blue-gray clay. Zsolt’s fermentations take place in open topped barrels with no sulfur and no intervention, he also uses a lot of skin maceration, aging under voile to create naturally strong and stable wines.

Alibernet is a variety that was created in the Ukraine in the 1950's and is a cross of Cabernet Sauvignon and Alicante Bouschet. A rich fruit driven wine that has a dense inkinesss to it. Smoke, meat and ripe blackberries with a good line of acidity. Medium bodied. A very interesting and curious wine.
