Our association was the first in Slovakia to come up with the mentioned tradition of tasting young wines, thereby establishing the tradition of tasting young wines before their official launch on the market, where, in a friendly atmosphere, professional and amateur winemakers from Modra and the surrounding area will mutually praise and evaluate their young wines.
Why St. Catherine's young wines? Especially for the reason, that at the end of November we can already taste the first Slovak young white and rose wines, which are already removed from the yeast and clarified and that's it, that fans of this delicious juice will be able to enjoy their captivating aroma and fresh acidity typical of the Small Carpathian varieties, which were collected in the months of September and October. How is young wine categorized in accordance with Act no. 313/2009 Z. with. about viticulture and winemaking? A wine with a protected designation of origin can be labeled with the words "young wine"., if the wine is filled into consumer packaging by the end of the calendar year at the latest, in which the grapes used to make this wine were harvested. Such wine can be put on the market at the earliest on the first Monday of November of the grape harvest year.
