Kasnyik winery

Tomas Kasnyik, Autentista Slovakia

Brothers Tomáš and Gabriel Kasnyiks cultivate about 5 hectares of own and leased vineyards in Strekov. They perceive wine as the result of craft work – at the beginning there has to be good quality material, i.e. grapes cultivated with maximum care.
The idea to prepare own wine appeared in 2004 and 2005. Brothers Kasnyiks bottled the first wine in 2006. Since 2008, both winegrowers have inclined to gentle, nature-close treatment of vineyards and in the wine cellar they have minimized extraneous additives and useless technological interference – they think that their use (seemingly making the life of a wine grower easier) brings extraneous tunes into wine and distorts the genuine character of Strekov wines. Brothers Kasnyiks prepare wines mainly from traditional Central European varieties, such as Svatovavřinecké, Ryzlink vlašský or Ryzlink rýnský.

Winery is a member of the association Autentista Slovakia.
