Čajkov village, the home of winemaker Marek Uhnák and his winery Pivnica Čajkov, is located in the Nitra wine region, within the volcanic Sitno terroir. Marek studied oenology at Mendel University, Lednice, Czech Republic and has 20+ years of winemaking under his belt. His journey started in conventional winemaking, but later, after realising that the true representation of the local terroir is through low intervention methods, he switched to natural winemaking processes and we are very thankful for that :)
