Guardian of the Wineries – ELESKO stone
Symbol and the guardian of ELESKO vineyards is a monumental travertine sculpture, named after the medieval Slovak castle guard. Blessed ELESKO vineyard is therefore guarded and protected by the stone in the shape of God’s eye. You will find it directly in the vineyards of the Little Carpathians near the village Vištuk (in the city of Modra).

ELESKO currently owns 110 hectares of new vineyards, which belong to one of the most beautiful in Slovakia. We use the most progressive and the most modern production techniques of cultivation of vineyards and grape processing in the area. When it comes to wine cultivation we try to comply with the soil, vegetation and animal species since we care about ecology and the environment.

Zeta is a relatively new variety, which was bred in 1951. It origined by crossing Bouvier grapes with Furmint and provides a fragrant, harmonious, full wines with fine acids that wane with maturation. Zeta is prone to be attacked by botrytis, which in good weather allows the creation of raisins and improves the quality of the wine.
