Traditional region

České středohoří and Podřipsko Region

Wine-growing area with a tradition reaching to the 11st century, whose initiators has always been a monk of religious orders. The best known cellars in Litoměřice are those monastery one's, and the wine-growing tradition in Žernoseky was founded by French monks, which quickly appreciated the ideal climatic and geographical conditions for grape vine growing. Right from Litoměřice comes the first written record about the Czech wine growing, and the viniculture tradition in Litoměřice is reminded by the gothic castle from the 13th century, sometimes called a „temple of a wine“.

Savour the traditional wine-growing region with all senses – enjoy romantic walks and tender nooks, marvel at beautiful views and let your tastes be carried away with wines of exceptional qualities and a hundred years old tradition.
