Welcome to my web page

Moravian wine trails.com 

This is a "sister site" to another web page www.BRNOguide.webs.com which I run.

where I offer various wine-trails / trips in the Czech Republic, (YouTube)  mainly aroud BRNO, the capital of the southern Moravia and therefore www.Moravian wine trails.  Together we can explore wine regions either foot or by bike, we can sample various Czech and Moravian wines, visit the local winemakers, attend some wine harvest festivals and enjoy the beautiful scenery dotted with various Chateaux and manor houses and palaces. 

Wine has been in the Czech lands as early as 2 BC when the Romans came to our territorry and the wine prooning knife has been found as a proof of their viticulture activities there. Emperor and king Charles IV had a French wife and it was him who introduced wine making industry and it has flourished since then. 


Wine regions in the Czech Republic
Wine regions in the Czech Republic

There are two wine regions in the whole Czech Republic - north of the Czech capital - Prague and the second is southern Moravia neighbouring Austria and Slovakia. The capital of Moravia is BRNO and these wine regions are only about 50 km south of BRNO. 



Great news for the wine lovers. The NEW YORK TIMES wrote in August 2016 an article about Moravian wine region, which we, the Czechs have known for centuries.
