Seasonal feasts of wine in South Moravia and wine region of Central Bohemia
There is no better time for visiting South Moravia – a region so famous for its great wine production – than the end of the summer season. The reason why is simple – celebration of the wine harvest and vintage! Mikulov, Velké Pavlovice and Valtice are all places with centuries´ long traditions of grape growing and cultivation. Vintage days have been for ages the most important days of these towns –true feasts of prosperity, joy and happiness.
For two or three days each year these charming towns are transformed into historical market places and welcome visitors with historical parades. You are invited to try various wines and fermented wine in many places and can also watch jousting tournaments and performances by jugglers, comedians, fencers, folklore ensembles in colourful costumes, and cymbal and brass bands. The programme also includes concerts, exhibitions, stalls with local gastronomic specialties and much more. Enjoy the vintage day during a single day trip and taste the unique culture of the specific region of South Moravia, full of traditions and folklore.
