A WORD FROM MIROSLAV KALINA
“I like to pamper my guests. That’s why they enjoy honest luxury on the plate and in the glass without pretentious gestures. We focus on the delicate combination of wine and food, which can be enjoyed by an experienced gourmet, a wine lover, but also anyone who wants to experience something spectacular. Come visit us to get a taste of our collection of wines from Champagne and other famous French regions.”
