Pesecká leánka (Fetesca Regala) - a mysterious young lady from southern Slovakia, a daughter of Danube flatlands, a muse inspiring poets, artists, music composers... She is fiery, brisk, passionate. We call her leánka because the Hungarian word for a girl - leányka is used also in Slovak. The wine comes from the heart of Romanian Transylvania, from the village of Danes in department of Sighisoara.
