The Brewhouse Brewery is a small cellar located in the rocky dwellings in the village of Brhlovce. It is a place where time is still flowing through the old – analogy. We try to make wine as classically as possible, as I remember from childhood. Wine and vine were an everyday part of our family life, but we also had sheep, goats, and bulls. The cooperative vineyards, in which I went to brigade in the summer, still form a natural landscape around Brhloviec. Maybe that’s why I did not see wine as something special in my youth, but rather fascinated by ” big world ” and pictures, whether static or moving. So I studied photography at VŠVU in Bratislava, as opposed to winemaking. But when I traveled the “big world ” and captured many pictures, I realized the unique location of Brhloviec and the strong energy of rocky dwellings. In 2011 I founded the wine cellar BRHLOVCE, and since then we have bottled all the wine under our own brand. Today all grapes come from Brhloviec and the surrounding areas.”
