At the peak of the second millennium has born sparkling wine named after the noble Pálffy family. The solemn baptism of the new Slovak sparkling wine took place at the Červený kameň castle in 1999.
The dignified pilgrimage of this fizzy beverage has already lasted for two decades. During this period Sekt Pálffy became the best selling sparkling wine in Slovakia, produced by the classical French method.
Sparkling wine produced by the secondary fermentation in bottles, where it is also finalized, is called the Méthode classique. To produce this ‘Slovak Champagne’, we grow grapes in the same latitude as the Champagne area.
The classic method of sparkling wine production is demanding and laborious. Its principle has not changed since the 17th century. Sparkling wine has been on yeast biomass for a long time and this symbiosis determines its unique quality characteristics. It is a real classic – the top of the wine pyramid.
