Winnica Rodziny Steców
Stec Family Vineyard
Vines are planted on the south and south-west slopes at altitudes ranging from 220 to 320 metres. From the north, the vineyard is surrounded by a large forest complex of several hundred hectares – the Tuchowski Forest – protecting the vines from cold winds and frosts.
The vineyard was designed by Roman Myśliwiec – a precursor of Polish winemaking, and established by Rafał Stec in 2007. Viticulture in the vineyard occupies as much as 4.5 hectares, but the area for the wine cultivation is to be expanded in the future. Currently, many varietals are grown in the vineyard, including: Seyval Blanc, Aurora, Bianca, Hibernal, Dawn, Muscat Odessa, Sibera, Solaris, Swenson Red, Rondo, Regent, Marechal Foch, Leon Millot, Bolero, Muscaris, Johaniter and Cabernet Cortis as well as dessert wine varieties. The vineyard is organically certified and cultivated on the principle of permaculture. The Stec Family Vineyard has won many awards in international wine competitions and medals at the Tuchovinifest festival.
