Chef Santiago Lastra opened his restaurant KOL near Marble Arch in London and chose four wines from Slobodné Vinárstvo, a winery near Hlohovec, as his house wine.

“We consider it to be a huge success of Slovak wineries in the world,” said winemakers of Slobodné Vinárstvo.

Slobodné Vinárstvo is known in the world for its ecologically-grown wine and characteristic wines produced with original methods. Its orange wine Cutis Deviner 2016 was enlisted among the 30 best orange wines of the world by the magazine Decanter.
