Milan Nestarec, Nach, Moravia, Czech Republic
Milan Nestarec is a name that has shaken the wine industry to it's knees, those natty wine enthusiasts seek Him out, even having a dividing dating system, there were those wines BN (before Nestarec) and those AN (after).
He is a humble wine maker and claims to be normal - 'Not using herbicides & other industrial treatments? Normal. No fooling around in the cellar? Normal. Not adding sulfur? Normal.', in reality this isn't normal and the wine industry needs to find these game changers and take notice. All Hail Nestarec!
Nestarec explains the story behind this wine best...'I'm super fond of red wines from the Jura: they’re sort of the underdogs when compared to the famous whites from the same region. Moravia is a similar story, although it’s maybe more due to a lack of confidence – if you spent some time around here, you’d have necesarilly heard that phrase “we can't make a decent red in Moravia, there's just not enough sun here”. This always makes my blood boil, because we actually do have a gem on our hands here: light-bodied, fun reds with good acidity. Just stop longing for those flashy fleshy Chilean / Southern reds and be happy with the beauty available at your doorstep....'
