Welcome to Utopiaeshop
In the age of industrial denaturation of foods and drinks, our ciders emerge close to utopicaly
spontaneously fermented by wild cultures・12 months sur-lie in neutral oak casks・without filtration, fining, pasteurisation, force carbonation・without added sulphites, acids, tannins, enzymes, aromas・without preservatives, sterilants or colorants
Each cask bears its name, each name bears 300 bottles featuring a unique character
Stronghold Sudkův Důl (home of Utopia) was, in past centuries, home to Mandalena, Dorota, Petronila and dozens of other girls and women. Each oak cask bears the name of one of them. Filled with single varietal juice or with an orchard blend, each cask gives birth to cider of a unique character after 12 months. We bottle each cask individually into a small batch of 300 bottles bearing the casks name and vintage.
We wanted to eat clean and healthy
So we moved to rural highlands. To stronghold Sudkův Důl farm near Tábor, Czech Republic. To grow, raise, forage, ferment. To build our pocket of the contemporary pre-industrial. With plenty of healthy, clean, unfuckedwith foods and beverages for our family and friends on their frequent visits.
Undisquised by usual layers of force carbonation and sweetening, UTOPIA presents an honest still & dry glou-glou experience resembling natural wines rather than conventional ciders.
