WINERY HISTORY

WINERY HISTORY

This brand new winery was founded in 2012. Cooperation of three different wine enthusiasts was a predecessor of this winery, from 2008 under the name Frtúsovci and Kutka.

Rado Frtús - Founder, author of the idea, innovator and wine fanatic.
Stano Ftrús - Enthusiast and detailman. The right person on the right place.
Tomáš Kuťka - Moral and marketing support.

Thanks to this trio, the Frtús winery was founded and I believe that they will help the winery to become a quality mark. And there is also another important person, my mate Lea Kašová. She manages finance. Probably, there would be nothing without her. Overview, wisdom and respect.

Lea Kašová - Manages finances. In fact, without her wouldn´t probably happen anything. Top view, intelekt and respect.

Many thanks sincerely to all of them, Rado Frtús

 
WINERY PHILOSOPHY

WINERY PHILOSOPHY

As the grape has its own identity given by the soil, climate and wine grower, so the wine has its own wine maker – the creator. This brand new winery has its own distinct identity and style in approach to wine. It is respect and honour towards grape, wine and especially towards people, who will drink these wines.

We don’t want to be one of many others, we want to be one of the few wineries and that’s why we are bringing something what will combine elegance, imaginativeness and identity. Something that we are standing for and what is only for those who can appreciate themselves, work of others, and wine drinking is their lifestyle.

WINE TASTINGS

WINE TASTINGS

Managed wine tastings are offered in our winery premises with a capacity of ca. 12 people or at any venue of your choice. . The wine tasting is managed by people who are the cause that the wine you can taste has been created and how it was created. You will be able to directly evaluate if our work has sense, or it is only our illusion. Besides our wines, you can also taste the traditional food of this region. We consider important to visit many wineries, but after some time, you will start returning only to few of them from some reason..

 

Grape

The region of Tekov – where we are at home actually – meet our ideas of identity and quality. In 2015, we bought 6 hectares of vineyards, but it is necessary to plant the grapes newly. We would like to plant in 2017. However, we are still looking for appropriate locations and soils to cover needs of our customers.

Wine

Frtus winery produces original wine for original people who can enjoy every moment of their life. There is a lot of manual work, personal involvement and ambitions in our wines. We approach to them with respect and honour and we strive to keep their character purity.
