3 land of wine 2015 WELCOME TO MORAVIA or, for the eighth time, to the Land of Wine Maybe you were there, when the 1st edition of the Land of Wine was introduced to the visitors of the Brno trade fair, Regiontour, in 2008, maybe you are holding this catalogue for the first time. What is certain is that, like every year, there is an increase and change in the wine municipalities, attractive places, wine cellars, events and great wines that also extend the offer on the pages of this publication. We will introduce you to the Moravia Wine Region, its four sub-regions and the bestknown varieties of vines that are grown there. We will advise you where to go for a variety of attractions and guide you through the wine cycle trails and the educational wine trails for hiking. We will tell you why soil and climate have key importance for the vine, we will allow you to spend a whole year with wine in the cellar and vineyard in a quick overview, and we will also introduce the basic system of wine classification in the Czech Republic to you. You will also find interviews with famous people and wine experiences invitations to selected wineries, which offer not only wine, but also something extra. In each section dedicated to a wine sub-region, you will find a list of wineries, wine stores and wine cellars, accompanied by a set of pictograms from the wine tourism service area, and the end of the publication includes a list of municipalities where you will find at least one open winery during the main season. What can you look forward to next? One novelty is the double page summarizing the information about all areas where wines with original certification (VOC or V.O.C) are produced. You will also get familiar with St. Martin s wines and with the phenomenon of recent years, rosé. You will find out what you can expect within the wine tourism service certification, in a certified winery, wine cellar, wine store, restaurant or accommodation and how they differ from other facilities. Unlike previous years, you will not find a double page devoted to a brief history of wine and viticulture in the Czech lands. But do not worry; all information, details, facts and interesting things are still available at THE MORAVIA WINE REGION IN NUMBERS The Moravia Wine Region includes the ha of vineyards, which represents 96 % of registered vineyards throughout the Czech Republic. The remaining 4 % are located in the Bohemia Wine Region. The Moravia Wine Region is, according to legend and archaeological sources, the area with the oldest vinicultural and viticultural tradition here. It lies between the 49th and 48th parallel and includes 312 wine municipalities and vineyard sites, cultivated by almost vine growers. The annual average temperature is 9.42 C, the average annual rainfall is 510 mm. The growing season is shorter than in Western Europe, but in most years has a higher thermal intensity of the summer months, which allows the growing of varieties with a late maturity of grape. The maturation is slower, so the grapes concentrate a greater amount of aromatic substances. The Moravia Wine Region is divided into four sub-regions: Znojemská, Mikulovská, Velkopavlovická and Slovácká. THE LAND OF WINE EDITION This publication is part of a large project dealing with wine tourism. This edition was created in cooperation with the National Wine Centre, the Wine Fund of the Czech Republic, the South Moravian Region, the South Moravian Tourist Authority, the Czech Tourist Authority Czech- Tourism and the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation, which will reliably guide you through the wine regions of the Czech Republic the Moravia Wine Region and Bohemia Wine Region. Maps are also part of the edition, including maps of the individual wine sub-regions in Moravia with a list of the most interesting places, events and the largest wineries. Selected materials are also available in English. 2 Moravia Wine Region 3

4 land of wine 2015 VARIETIES One of the reasons why South Moravia gives birth to wines of original taste and renowned diversity is the unusually rich varietal composition. In these vineyards, thirty-one varieties of white and twentyseven varieties of red wines listed in the State Variety Book can be found. However, one shall not forget that this wide range of Moravian wines is also influenced by the combination of natural conditions and work of human hands. In the Czech Republic, there Veltlínské zelené (Grüner Veltliner) The aromas and tastes of the green-yellow wine reveal the composition of the vineyard s soil. Sometimes it is the aroma of linden flowers that prevails, or of bitter almonds; sometimes the character is spicy, tones of green pepper. Ryzlink rýnský (Riesling) One of the best quality varieties for white wines is grown all over the world. The wines stand out with a wide spectrum of aroma tones resembling linden blossom, peaches, apricots or pineapple according to the soil type and a year. Sauvignon (Sauvignon Blanc) Significant, globally widespread variety, originally probably from France. It is popular for its variety of scents from grassy nettle tones over blackcurrant, gooseberry to the scent of peach or exotic passionfl o w e r. Svatovavřinecké (Saint Laurent) The most frequent red variety in the Czech Republic providing velvety bright dark red wines of harmonic taste, smelling of a sour cherry, black currant or prune, with a distinct and full taste. are more than 700 registered wineries from big companies to small family firms, and thousands of small private winemakers. Therefore, the resulting style of individual wines is not determined only by terroir, diverse terrain, differing soils and microclimate but also by the winemaker with his invention, experience, and application of traditional methods or new trends. In other words, original Moravian wines are everything but insipid and mediocre. Müller Thurgau (Müller Thurgau) A variety frequent in all northern wine-growing areas in Europe and overseas. Wines of a green-yellow colour and muscat-fruity aroma with tones of grapefruits or peaches are best young and fresh. Ryzlink vlašský (Welschriesling) This fresh green-yellow wine with a medium-full taste and spicy acid is the most frequent variety in the Mikulov area. Fruit tones of black currant or gooseberry prevail, later the aroma of meadow flowers. Rulandské bílé (Pinot Blanc) Classical variety of French origin, spread over whole Europe, gives elegant wines with a gentle aroma of flowers. In mature wine you can discover aroma of pears, bread crust and hazelnuts. Frankovka (Blaufränkisch) The blue variety grown especially in Central Europe. Wines have light and dark ruby colour with purple sparks, in the matured vintages you can reveal a typical pleasant spiciness and blackberry aroma.

In the Czech Republic, VOC indication is in parallel with the so-called Germanic system of wine classification, where the wine quality is based on, in particular, the sugar content of grapes. Systems are not competitors, on the contrary, the VOC indication only diversified the offer of domestic winemakers and provided more choice to wine lovers.

The project, coordinated by the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation, involves 230 wine villages and towns. Maps containing information about the route length, altitude profile and road surface are available for each individual circuit as well as the spinal Moravian Wine Trail. Information boards and signposts with pictograms identify points of interest and services along the way. THE BRNO WINE TRAIL The route starts in Moravany and connects the Moravian metropolis with routes of the Znojemská and Velkopavlovická Sub-Regions. It is 130 km long and takes the cyclists for example to Dolní Kounice where excellent red wines are grown, to the Jihlava River valley, the Jihlava River Plain National Park or the Nové Mlýny reservoirs. THE MIKULOV WINE TRAIL In the south the route passes through the Lednice-Valtice Composed Landscape, it is 84 km long and quite flat, reaching the highest point at the Rajstna colonnade from where it follows the Austrian-Czech border as far as Nový Přerov. In the north it leads through places of the oldest human settlement, the wine-growing region of Pálava and the surroundings of the Nové Mlýny reservoirs. THE PODLUŽÍ WINE TRAIL The route through the flatland of Podluží is 115 km long, with asphalt roads alternating with dirt roads. In several places it is possible to admire rural architecture of cellars. The southern part of the route leads to two well-known Slavic settlements of Pohansko and Valy u Mikulčic; the northern part enters the forested area of Dolňácko near Kyjov. THE BZENEC WINE TRAIL The shortest, only 26 km long route follows mostly roads of the 3rd class via the hilly area of the Kyjov Hills, and near Bzenec and Vracov it enters the vale of Dolnomoravský úval. The circuit is connected to the Kyjov, Uherské Hradiště and Strážnice Wine Trails, and part of the route is parallel to the spinal Moravian Wine Trail. THE MORAVIAN WINE TRAIL The red-marked spinal route of the Moravian wine trails connects the ancient town of Znojmo with Uherské Hradiště, the metropolis of Slovácko. The 285 km long arterial road passes through all the Moravian wine sub-regions and crosses 7 out of the 10 local wine route circuits. 70 wine municipalities and 10 protected nature areas are located along the route. THE ZNOJMO WINE TRAIL The longest route connecting nearly 60 wine towns and villages on 165 km of length. This route is not a closed circuit, but it passes through the most interesting places of the Znojemská Wine Sub-Region. The area along the Dyje River offers flat road sections and fine roads between fields and vineyards. Lovers of rougher terrains will enjoy the Podyjí National Park. THE VELKÉ PAVLOVICE WINE TRAIL The northern part of the 110 km long, richly branched trails leads to a wine region with an attractive terrain and several lookout towers (Velké Pavlovice, Bořetice). From the Velké Pavlovice region, an area with a number of open wine cellars, the route leads via the vale of Dolnomoravský úval around the Nové Mlýny reservoirs to the Lednice-Valtice area. THE MUTĚNICE WINE TRAIL The Mutěnice area forms the border between the northern and southern Moravian wine subregions. The mostly flat, 65 km long route through the gently undulating landscape of the Kyjov Hills can be divided into two smaller circuits following well passable consolidated dirt roads. There are several short climbs leading to nice lookout points. THE STRÁŽNICE WINE TRAIL A 101 km long, winding road leading mostly along quiet roads, with about 20 km of consolidated or grassy dirt roads. The flat route rises up only in the White Carpathians foothills and in several parts of the Hlucká Higlands. Thanks to its rich branching, the route connects the Strážnice region with Podluží, Uherské Hradiště and Bzenec wine routes. For successful wondering to wine we recommend to get maps from our Land of Wine series or directly from the Czech Environmental Partnership Foundation project. YEAR WITH WINE January If the weather is nice, work in the vineyard starts with vine pruning which usually ends in February. In the winery, wine is being prepared for bottling it is treated.

MARTIN S WINES Leaves are falling, St. Martin arrives on a white horse and a goose is in the oven just time to put St. Martin s wine on the table! St. Martin s wines (Svatomartinské víno) are the 1st wines of the new year, which, according to tradition, you can taste on St. Martin on 11th of November, best at 11 o clock. Fresh, young and fruity wine is produced exclusively from early varieties, so you will meet, for example, red wines from Blauer Portugieser and Saint Laurent, white wines from Müller Thurgau, Frühroter Veltliner or Moravian Muscat and rosé and clarets from Blauer Portugieser, Zweigeltrebe and Saint Laurent. They are sold under a common designation on the label and cap, and, of course, must meet certain criteria. The popularity of St. Martin s wine is growing each year and now approximately two million bottles are opened. Today, every good restaurant prepares a St. Martin s menu with roast goose and young wine and a number of events are held: festivals of St. Martin s wines and goose, St. Martin s wandering around the open cellars, elsewhere St. Martin s wines are at least blessed. If you do not manage to drink St. Martin s wines in autumn, winemakers recommend to do it by Easter. ROSÉ WINES Although many consider St. Martin s Wine as a purely domestic modern equivalent of French Beaujolais, its history is much longer. The habit of drinking new wine on St. Martin was tracked down for the first time at the Court of Emperor Joseph II and wine was similarly treated, even in the countryside. The reason was simple: that day ended the employment for winemakers working for larger farmers. Its continuation for the next year was negotiated with a glass of the first wines from the autumn harvest and with well-roasted Martin s goose, accompanied by rolls or cakes. Even the distribution of meat had certain rules. The lowest servant supposedly received a wing to fly at work, the higher servant a leg and the bailiff kept the rest. The skin of the goosefeet was put under the feet into shoes so they would not sweat, or between the fingers to prevent the growth of corns. Rosé wine is fresh, youthful and dynamic, romantic and sweet. It is usually drunk young and is a great companion for summer afternoons and evenings. Rosé wine has become a phenomenon in recent years. If you think that rosé wines exist only in a single hue, winemakers will convince you about the wide variety of their colours. You can meet wines in the colour of apricot, peony, salmon or orange through to onion. You will find notes of strawberries, raspberries or cherries in their aroma and flavour. In addition, you can choose from a dry rosé to wine with a pleasant residual sugar. Rosé is most commonly produced from blue varieties by the method of the short fermentation of crushed grapes (grape mash). The resulting colour and intensity of smell and taste depends on its length and chosen variety. Experience and the estimate of the winemaker play an indispensable role. Rosé also gets its popularity through its multifaceted use in gastronomy. You can combine it with many dishes, drink it on its own, such as a spritzer, or in cocktails. You will find a few recipes for pink drinks and appetizers, main courses and desserts, to which the rosé goes very well on For the development of all aromas and taste, it should be chilled at a temperature of 8 to 12 C. Rosé wines are mainly drunk young and fresh. Winemakers recommend drinking them within a year or two from harvest, moreover it is a pity to hide something in the cellar that goes so well with summer cuisine, picnics, grilling and sitting by the pool. Where can you taste rosé wine? For example, at the Rosé Wine Feast, which takes place annually on 1st of May in the Villa Richter at Svatováclavská vinice (St. Václav s vineyard) at Prague Castle. Wine stores organize a special wine tastings dedicated only to rosé, you will also find rosé collections at all wine shows. Another opportunity is Jarovín Rosé, the only domestic competition with just rosé wines, included in the programme of May festivals in Znojmo. 16 Moravia Wine Region 17

You are certainly busy enough. How often do you return to Znojmo? Znojmo is a city I like very much. And not just because my whole family lives here. When I have a few days off, I always like to get in the car and come here. I m very happy that I occasionally manage to come to work in Znojmo. For example, in the Znojmo Historic Vintage Festival in the role of King John of Luxembourg, or to Znojmo theatre with some fine performances. Znojmo is simply a matter of my heart. How do you perceive the impact of your birthplace? I grew up and studied in Znojmo till 18, and then I completed my studies at the gymnasium of Dr. Karel Polesný. Then I went to the theatre Západočeské divadlo Cheb and subsequently to study at DAMU in Prague. I regularly returned home and drew energy for my work. I really like it here. I love the historical part of the city. I was always fascinated by the view from the Church of St. Mikuláš towards the rotunda or to the river with its dam and meanders. After all, I have experienced my first loves and fun with my friends here! Among my heart s places also belongs the space around Podhradí nad Dyjí, the Vranov region, Dyje. Do you have a personal relationship to winemaking? How does it manifest itself? I like wine and as a true Moravian, I cannot say anything against it. I always take a good bottle to Prague, which I will very quickly lose again thanks to friends in Prague. I like wine with good food and also for tasting with friends. I love a good mood and fun, and it just belongs to Moravia. I think that I maintain this cheery approach to life also in Prague. Which kind of wine do you like? Do you prefer wines from the Znojmo region? I like white wines and the best dry. For example, Grüner Veltliner or Sauvignon, so typical for Znojmo. I also came to taste the Rosé Pinot Noir late harvest from the winery Vinařství Hort from Znojmo. There are several wineries here that I like very much. But I also like the wine from my friend, Staňa Mádl, from Velké Bílovice very much, I am always glad to meet him. I like Riesling from him, for example. To have a good wine with family or friends in Znojmo is always an unforgettable experience. In which kind of work are you currently employed, and which pleases you the most? I was nicely surprised by an offer from a foreign production to film the German film from the early 18th century. I play a banker and declared gambler and seducer named John Law. I am also happy that we had a successful premiere of crazy musical comedy in the Kalich Theatre called Svatba (ne)bude where my job is to play the role of the father of three children, which I appropriately enjoy. I am continuously enjoying all of the beautiful performances of the Broadway Theatre and Divadlo Radka Brzobohatého, where I play. And I can t wait to rehearse a new improvised comedy for two actors named Krásný a krásnější. A non-traditional two man show of two friends, who are totally different in everything. Is there any dream role that you would like to play in the future? Each role is a challenge for me, and I never know what will be the final result. However, mostly the role I am looking forward to the most then fails to meet my expectations. In contrast, the role of which I am afraid and do not know how to play it at the beginning, is for me the greatest adventure at the end and moves me somewhere. I am looking forward to my next steps in acting.
