INFO ON GROWER
Mira – a project by wife and husband team Mira and Milan Nestarec but one that is spearheaded by Mira.
Mira means dreams. A project that they have been carrying in their minds for a while and finally managed to bring to light. Some parts needed time to mature, some, on the contrary, happened very spontaneously. Just like in nature, right?
Mira says, “It all starts with vineyards, as always: over the past couple of years, we have managed to acquire very interesting vineyards, in locations with a unique character. From the very beginning, we wanted to work with them in a slightly different way, to look for ways to let nature, freedom, art, and beauty – things that are essential in our lives – thrive.
Our hands are very, very light when guiding the vineyards. There is no cutting, rarely a human hand touches the vines. The shoots are literally allowed to touch the sun. We believe that this approach instills a particular character in the wine, liberty of movement that translates also to what’s in your glass. The most important thing for us is to bring you joy, the opportunity to dream and fly with us.”
Working in the cellar is all about the power of the moment for them. The magical moment of birth and transformation. They believe that they don’t want to imprint any preconceived ideas on the wine, quite the contrary. They decide on the go, let themselves be fascinated, taught, and enriched by the wine itself, free from tradition, prejudices, and established patterns. They watch in wonder as a new individuality emerges. No standards, no comparison. They want to foster positivity, beauty, and life. These are our dreams.”
The labels are inspired by Mira’s background in dance and art (she’s originally been a ballet teacher) and each is dedicated to these beautiful beings whose character reflects the wines.
