Who we are
ViaJur, the wine growing, and winemaking enterprise follows in the tradition of the exceptional historical narration, in which the Pálffy family manor in the town of Svätý Jur plays an important role. It was exactly in this noble location, where wine growers and wine makers have been producing wine since as early as the 15th century and it naturally comes as one of our main priorities to follow in the centuries-old tradition and heritage contained in this story.
ViaJur winemaking enterprise farms and grows grapes in two estates – Svätý Jur and Farná. The year-round hard work of our winegrowers ensures abundancy of high-quality raw material for our winemaking branch to produce outstanding wines. All the estates have their own characteristic terroir reflected in our wines.
The actual winemaking facility is located in the historical cellars of the Pálffy manor. And although we follow in the viticulture traditions and heritage, we deploy state-of-the-art technology in processing of grapes while preserving the well-established methods of winemaking tested by time. We treat the grapes – the product of winegrowers’ hard labour – with the respect they deserve. Using gentle processing methods, we attempt to transfer all the sunlight, terroir as well as the most natural flavours from the grapes directly into the wine.
