Family Winery Story

„History of the family winemaking tradition goes back four generations of Berta.

Grandfather of our father settled in Strekov after a forced leave from Hungary, even though his initial destination had been Modra. The train, however, didn't stop in Modra, so he, as a skilled winemaker, took administration of Strekov vineyards where he established the first family vineyard. He taught our father the secrets of winemaking from an early age. Years later, my father again shared this knowledge with my brother Lukáš and me. The first vineyard, in which both of us have helped out since childhood, had been planted in 1973.“

An icon of New Zealand wine industry has recognized the Berta Winery

Sir George Fistonich is the founder of the iconic Villa Maria winery, which, in 2001, was the first to introduce the “Cork-Free Zone” - meaning that all their wines use screwcap. The reason for this was simple - to get rid of the fears concerning the insufficient quality of cork stoppers. As he says, 8 “corked bottles” out of 100 was too big a number to just overlook.

New design for the Berta brand

The story of our new logo and labels for our wines began about a year ago. We chose Komplot Advertising based on the recommendations of our mutual friend Peter Kučerka. Since the very first meeting with the Komplot Advertising team we were sure that they are the right people for the job. We believed they will come up with something extraordinary and timeless.
And we were right. :-)
