Taste the summer sun in your glass
When you say wine, the Czech Republic might not be the first country to come to mind. But that’s quite a shame. Wine growing and wine production have a centuries-old tradition here. In recent decades, Czech and Moravian winemakers have continued ancient traditions, and wines produced in the Czech Republic are served in even the most famous Michelin-starred restaurants in world capitals. Most of the vineyards can be found in south Moravia, in a region where tradition and folklore are still alive and are firmly connected with wine production. See for yourself when visiting the various wine festivals, celebrations and autumn grape harvest vintages held each year. If you wish to explore the picturesque vineyard landscape, cellars, wine villages, castles and historic towns such as Mikulov, Znojmo or Lednice, you can take one of the many wine hiking trails or bike trails. Even if your journey does not take you to south Moravia, do not despair. You can also find vineyards located directly in Prague or just outside of Prague in the towns of Mělník or Litoměřice.
