Wine Mília sparkling ’22, of which a total of 3333 bottles were produced. An absolutely phenomenal collaboration between the Chateâu Rúbaň winery and the jeweller Petra Toth, who, thanks to the combination of tradition and modernity, have jointly produced a unique wine of the Slovak variety. The wine from this new grape was harvested in the quality of the selection of grapes. The hand-harvested grapes were processed gently and macerated for several hours at a reduced temperature and with limited access to air oxygen at all stages of winemaking. The wine was then carbonated with carbon dioxide (CO2).
Petra Toth is a well-known Slovak jeweller who transforms original folk designs into contemporary forms in the form of beautiful jewellery and fashion accessories. Her work reflects the need to support and revive traditions and costumes in Slovakia and around the world. For the first time, the Petra Toth studio and Château Rúbaň have been brought together and thanks to this combination you can enjoy Milia Sparkling ´22 wine.
