We believe in sustainable, environmentally sensitive viticulture, respecting the vineyard as a living and varied ecosystem. Each bottle is a proud expression of the earth it came from. Both in the vineyard and in the winery classical music reverberates.
At Lunessence, it is our belief that exposure to classical music helps produce well-balanced wines.
If I had to try just one thing from your winery?
Along with playing classical music, we also use classical methods of making wine. Our focus is traditional, old school winemaking methods and combining them with modern and effective winemaking equipment.
By knowing our soil, climate and winemaking, we focus on the potential in every bottle. Wines made traditionally attract their natural varietal character, they tend to be fruitier with gentle honey, cream and walnut tones. Simply put, they contain all the flavours you smell in the vineyard. They have bigger structure and bouquet with deeper complexity and taste.
All our white wines benefit from long contact with both their skins and lees. Barrels are used to underline the character of the variety. Vinification of our red wines is focused on extracting bold fruit flavours. Aging takes place in a variety of French, American, Hungarian and Slovakian barrels and even in old neutral wooden vats.
Is there anything else to see, taste or do at your winery?
Music! Classical music is the thread that connects our vineyard, winemaking and our winery philosophy as a whole and we don’t take it lightly.
We believe it helps us to find a balance between nature, humanity and the energy around us.
With speakers installed in our vineyard, all our estate-grown grapes listen to classical music as they grow. As we know, the life of grapes isn’t easy. By playing sensuous classical music, the wines are exposed to positive emotion and this makes their growth smoother and happier.
Our winemaking and cellar aging are accompanied by operas composed by Giuseppe Verdi, W. A. Mozart, Gioacchino Rossini, Ruggero Leoncavallo, Pietro Mascagni and others. Each wine requires different technique, music and feeling.
This attention helps us to produce fine wines with deep character.
Our wine is not only a product, it is a gift from nature that we are honoured to transform into a very special treat. A beverage that brings happiness and relaxation to our daily lives and special occasions.
