"Wine has always reciprocated by giving me back all the energy I‘ve put in it several times over. We were maturing together while learning from each other. So wine became my passion, which led me to the town of Svätý Jur – the true wine sanctuary of Slovakia. Despite the fact that the inhospitable conditions for growing wine grapes in my native Orava region did not foretell at all that my future would be closely linked to viticulture and winemaking. Yet fate decided differently. At the very beginning, I was lucky enough to be able to study viticulture and winemaking at the Nelson Marlborough Institute of Technology (NMIT) in New Zealand and learn from the best oenologists. After returning to Slovakia enriched with rare and unique experience, I settled in one of the most prestigious Slovak wineries. Having worked for eight years as a chief technologist, it was here I got to know and had the privilege to shape the beauty of Slovak wines. ViaJur winery represents the current chapter of my professional life. This is a genuine challenge requiring me to leverage all my previous expertise while having the chance to participate in shaping the future of Slovak viticulture and winemaking. All of the above while paying respect to the history and heritage present all around and admiration for the unique terroir of this region of Little Carpathians."

“My path as a sommelier started at the secondary school when I was 18. It was then and there where I first encountered wine. Later, I worked in a well-known Slovak wine business near Modra. I acquired more experience while working for the largest wine distributor in the Slovak HoReCa segment. And from there, my path led me to Selaví wine distribution where I work as Business Director and simultaneously as chief sommelier. I regard myself as a wine lover and I am proud if people label me as a sommelier. However, this is not an easy job: You don’t only need commitment, but you also need to be aware that it is not an employment, it’s a lifestyle. If it was only a job, it would take 8 hours a day, but I perceive it as an integral part of my life.”
