The Moravia Wine Region
Welcome to Moravia
The Moravia Wine Regionis located in the South Moravian and Zlín region, a small part of it is also in the Vysočina region. The oldest viticultural area in the Czech Republic is proud of the wine-growing traditions from the days when the Roman legions temporarily settled under Pálava, and soldiers established the first vineyards on its slopes. Moravia was, due to climatic conditions, considered to be an area with excellent prerequisites for the production of white wines with an interesting range of aromas and spiciness for a long time. Fresh acids underlining the harmony of the aromas and flavours stimulate the repeated sipping of this harmonious wine. Blue varieties for the production of red wines received less attention, but they already had good conditions in some sub-regions before, and in recent years, thanks to the warmer weather and modern technology, their importance is increasing.Maps of the Moravia Wine Region changed several times, most recently in 2004, when the wine law adjusted the division of the wine sub-regions. 10 wine regions existed until then: Brněnská, Bzenecká, Kyjovská, Mikulovská, Mutěnická, Podluží, Strážnická, Uherskohradišťská, Velkopavlovická and Znojemská. The naming of the known wine trails comes from their names. Since 2004, the Moravia Wine Region has been divided into four sub-regions: Znojemská, Mikulovská, Velkopavlovická and Slovácká.
