From the mouth of the importer (Jenny & Francois):
"The “Autentisté” group is the name for natural winemakers in the Czech Republic. This movement was started by winemaker/Prague winebar owner Bogdan Trojak in the late 2000’s. The Autentisté manifesto, similar to that of other natural winemakers, states: 'According to Authentic Winegrowers, genuine wine should be true drink acquired only from grapes, without excess technological intervention and additives – selected yeast, enzymes, tannins or clarifiers. In vineyards, they comply with rules valid for bio-production. Authentic Winegrowers perceive their work as a mission. It is not a business only – it is important that someone preserves the taste of traditional wines and ensures actual terroir thanks to gentle procedures.'"
