    VIAJUR’s Farná estate, is a 40-hectare haven that underwent a rebirth with the planting of 5 hectares of new vines in 2017. Here, the metamorphosis of the vineyards intertwines with the recultivation of less suitable lands into thriving fruit orchards, creating a sustainable oasis that transcends the ordinary.

    Pálffy Manor

    In the heart of Slovakia, near Bratislava, nestled among the rolling hills and vineyards of the picturesque region of Svätý Jur, stands the historic manor house named after Katarína Pálffy. Notable historical reconstructions and the influence of figures like Katarína Pálffy in the 16th century have intertwined the manor’s story with the broader context of the Habsburg era. The Pálffy Manor was a testament to the wealth and power that Katarína once held, a woman who had left an indelible mark on the history of the region.

    Katarína Pálffy, born into privilege and influence, was known for her shrewd business acumen and her passion for wine production. In the 18th century, she had transformed the family’s modest vineyards into a thriving enterprise, making Svaty Jur synonymous with fine wines that were coveted far beyond the borders of Slovakia. As the years passed, the Pálffy Manor became a symbol of prosperity and refinement. The grand halls echoed with tales of Katarína’s tenacity and the elegance that defined her reign.

    The estate’s vineyards flourished under her guidance, producing some of the most exquisite wines in the region. Centuries later, the legacy of Katarína Pálffy lived on, and the manor continued to stand as a testament to her enduring influence. The Pálffy Manor had been beautifully preserved, and its walls whisper stories of the past to those who wandered through its majestic rooms. The Manor today, standing as a sentinel to 700 years of viticultural tradition, is now home to our VIAJUR winery.
