About the winemaker

Robert Osička is a natural winemaker from Velké Bílovice, the largest wine village in the Czech Republic. He is the eldest son of Jaroslav Osička, who is one of the founders of the Moravian Authentists, natural winemakers movement, and who along with Robert’s grandfather taught him everything he knows about winemaking.

About the wine

Robert has often said he is most inspired by the sound of the Sex Pistols. You would be forgiven, though, for wondering what a sneering lip and “up yer arse” attitude has to do with the unbelievable elegance and attention to detail of his sparkling wines. His intention is a return to ultra classic methode champenoise amid the trendiness of the petnat, of bottling with huge amounts of the fine lees, of wildness with spectacular craftsmanship behind it.

Robert works with local grape varieties of the region, which provide unusual twists to the taste profiles and nose of the wines. Base wines are aged both in stainless steel tanks and old oak barrels and are unfined and unfiltered. Leading to a full on luxury product. Minimal to no sulphites are used in production and all of the wines are vegan. He started making traditional method natural bubbles with a clean and crisp profile - as a devoted fan of Sex Pistols, the name was obvious – Punkista.
