Successes of Czech wines


Last year our winemakers brought home over 900 medals from around the world!

Historically the year 2018 became the most successful medal year ever and has once more confirmed the perpetually growing quality of Moravian and Czech wines. In all, our winemakers were awarded 909 medals, which is an almost unbelievable 181 more than the total gained during the previous year, itself a record-breaking year as well. Over a long period participation in foreign competitions has received the financial support of the Wine Fund, and so Moravian and Czech wines have made the world take notice of themselves. The organisation of Moravian and Czech participation in international wine contests is supported by the National Wine Centre which is based in Valtice.

Enormous success for Moravian wines in Paris, last year champion of rosé and this year of white wines!

The unbelievable success of the Moravian winery Vinařství Horák in Paris has meant the first ever double in the history of the prestigious Vinalies Internationales wine competition and once again confirms that Moravia really does belong amongst the best wine regions on the planet and Moravian vintners are a part of the world’s absolute elite. Last year Leoš Horák won the Champion (Lauréat Trophée) among the rosé wines and it never occurred to anyone that we would live to see something similar again this time round. But this year Vinařství Horák did win again, this time with his Hibernal special selection of grapes 2016 in the face of immense competition in the most prestigious white-wine category. The presentation of Moravian and Czech wines in the competition was organised by the National Wine Centre with the financial support of the Wine Fund.
