One of the reasons why Czech wines have such original flavour and renowned diversity is the amazingly rich varietal mix. In the local vineyards, you can find 35 varieties of white and 26 varieties of red grapes that are listed in the National Register of Grape Varieties, along with several other unlisted ones. Against this wide-ranging background of Moravian and Bohemian wines, it is necessary to take into consideration the combination of natural conditions and the work undertaken by the human hand. In the Czech Republic, there are over eight hundred and fifty registered wineries. Our native winemaking speciality is the multi-varietal composition of the vineyards, including those of the small vintners. Thus the resulting style of the individual wines is influenced not only by the terroir, regional landscape, different soils and microclimates, but also by the winemakers with their ingenuity, skill, experience, traditional methods and new trends. In short, you will never find any dullness or mediocrity in Moravian and Bohemian wines of original provenance.
