To Velké Bílovice for the Winemakers
The dreamy South Moravian town of Velké Bílovice
has an abundance of wine cellars.
Almost every family owns a bit of a vineyard and
a cellar. Every summer, they organise an event called To Velké Bílovice for the Winemakers.
For a small fee, you can visit up to 8 cellars and taste the best wine they have. And how to find out which cellar is open? They’ll tell you that in the local information centre. Grab a map with the cellars, find the winemaker and start tasting. The event ends in the last week of August.
Traditional Feast and Top Wines from Pálava!
Local winemakers invite you to Pavlov
, a wine-growing village at the foothills of the smallest Czech mountains – Pálava
. You can taste the excellent Pavlov wine and tour the local historical cellars. Ten to twelve wine samples are offered in each. The list of open wine cellars is available in the Pavlov wine bar, or you can ask the locals. And if you come on 5 and 6 August, you will get to experience a real Moravian feast in traditional attire.
