KONICE - KRAVÍ HORA
I organically cultivate here 0.8 hectares of vineyards of the eastern exposition with Grüner Veltliner. Kraví hora is an important vineyard route with an area of 67 hectares. The old pre-Tertiary weathered and deeply eroded surface on the edge of the Dyje massif has been flooded by the sea several times throughout history and covered by alluvium from higher areas of the mainland. The retreat of the sea restored erosion and the deep river valley was created. Here the buried rocky outcrops on the slopes of Kraví hora or on the southwestern edge of Nový Šaldorf were discovered. Sands and a large number of iron compounds are also part of the sediment. Fragments of massive bones (whale's jaw, siren's rib, crocodile's bones) as well as finer shells of mollusks were found in this location. Gravel makes up 30% of the skeleton. Altitude 260 - 338 meters above sea level, the average annual temperature is 9.1 ° C and the average annual precipitation is 520 mm.
HAVRANÍKY - STARÉ VINICE
I organically cultivate here 2 vineyards (0.5 hectares of planted area). These are plantings from 2004, mainly of the Grüner Veltliner and Pinot Noir, south-western exposition. Havraniky moorland is the largest moorland in the Podyjí National Park. The land on the right bank of the river Dyje used to be a pasture for cattle. There is a very specific geological profile. The Proterozoic and Paleozoic subsoil are the most represented. The mainland was formed by igneous rocks of the Dyje massif, represented by biotic granite which was seldom penetrated by aplites and quartz, even when the massif was cooling. Remains of sea sands and calcareous clays have been preserved here and one can find fragments of shellfish shells and fish bones in clay. I have a vineyard in this beautiful location of Staré Vinice. It is a medium-sized vineyard route with a planted area of 69.6 ha with a southern, southeastern and southwestern exposure. The occurrence of stone makes up 20-30% of the skeleton. The altitude is 270 - 310 meters above sea level. The average annual temperature is 9 ° C and the average annual rainfall is 480mm.
TASOVICE - STARÁ HORA
Since 2021, I have been cultivating 1 hectare of planted area here in the organic mode, mainly the Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Grüner Veltliner, Moravian Muscat and Zweigeltrebe. Tasovice, an old wine-growing village is situated on the edges of the Bohemian-Moravian Highlands. The area covered with vineyards around here is 139 hectares where sand-clay weatherings cover the granites of the Dyje massif. The altitude is 222 - 238 meters above sea level. The average annual temperature is 8.4 ° C. Slope 5 - 10%. The Stará hora vineyard route is located on the right bank of the river Dyje. Originally, this was only the easternmost tip of the slope, later it expanded to the Kamenný vrch vineyard route. The slopes are facing away from the sun and therefore contain enough acids every year. Stará hora is a long stone slope of the Paleozoic bedrock (Kambrium). It consists mainly of sandy loam and gravel sands with various types of granite, gneiss and quartz.
HNANICE - FLÁDNICKÁ
In the spring of 2022 I will plant a vineyard with an area of 0.5 hectares, southern exposure. Varietal composition Rhine Riesling, Sauvignon, Pinot noir and Zweigeltrebe. The village of Hnanice is the first written mention of the year 1210 and according to archeological findings it was intensively settled 100,000 years ago. The dominant feature of the village is the church of St. Wolfgang, which is built on the foundations of the original church from the 13th century. The original church was frequently visited by pilgrims, mainly because healing springs, which were located inside the church. The Fládnická terroir is in close proximity to this church and there is still groundwater in the subsoil of the vineyard route. The geological origin of this terroir is calcareous loess and sandy-clay sediments of the Carpathian foredeep. In the Late Tertiary, the area was most likely a rugged bay through which a freshwater river flowed. Windstorms in the cold periods of the Quaternary contributed to the creation of loess accumulations. The soil here is very fertile with a slightly alkaline pH.
HNANICE - KNÍŽECÍ VRCH
Beautiful vineyard, which is located in the Podyjí National Park. This is a 0.7 hectare of Welschriesling, south-eastern exposure. Year of planting 1993. The vineyard is in organic mode. Paleozoic quartz as well as Tertiary granite and gneiss are represented in the subsoil. A typical feature of this terroir is local microclimate - warm summer days and cold summer nights, alternating temperatures increase varietal aromaticity. The total area of this vineyard route is 24.4 ha. The average annual temperature is 9 ° C. The annual rainfall is 480 mm. Altitude is from 280 to 336 meters above sea level. Geological origin of calcareous loess soils on the sand-clay weatherings of the Dyje Massif.
OBLEKOVICE - NAČERATICKÝ KOPEC
I buy grapes from the local vineyard of the southern exposition planted in 2009. This vineyard is in organic mode. Large vineyard route with an area of 126 ha with various expositions of vineyards. It is an "island mountain", which is a remnant of the Tertiary weathering of the granite massif. The basis is igneous rocks - biotic granodiorites and amphibolic quartz diorites. Slightly acidic pH. The upper part of the hill is rather rocky with gravel and sand, clay and gravel in the lower part. Occurrence of stone 15 - 40% of the skeleton. Altitude 226 - 280 meters above sea level. The average annual temperature is 8.8 ° C. Average annual rainfall 500mm.
DYJÁKOVIČKY - U SKLEPŮ
Since 2021, I have been cultivating 0,2 hectare of planted area here in the organic mode, mainly the Welschriesling, Moravian Muscat, Grüner Veltliner and Pinot noir. The vineyards around the wine village Dyjákovičky are spread over than 60 hectares of planted area. The area was geologically built by marine sedimentary units of the Carpathian. Layered calcareous clays protrude to the surface. In the Late Tertiary period, the area was a rugged bay. Windstorms in the cold periods of the Quaternary contributed to the formation of calcareous loess. The soil here is very fertile with an alkaline pH. The terroir U sklepů is set on a slightly northern slope. Historically, the Welschriesling variety has reached the highest qualities here.
ŠATOV - U BUNKRU
Since 2021, I have been organically cultivating here a vineyard with an area of 0.2 hectares. Varietally represented here are mainly Malvasia, Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. The first written mention of vine growing in Šatov is from 1316. In this traditional wine village there are 4 terroirs. The smallest terroir here U bunkru is spread on a gentle slope with a northern orientation. This guarantees enough acids every year. The northern position of the slope is also characterized by a colder summer night, which has a very positive effect on the strong aroma of the wine. The area of this vineyard route is 31.5 ha - the realistically planted area with fertile vineyards is, however, only 3.6 ha. Only small winegrowers with vineyards on small plots farm on the planted area. The altitude here is 250 - 270 meters above sea level. Average slope 3%. The average annual temperature is 8.9 ° C. The geological origin of this vineyard route is calcareous loess and sandy-clayey sediments of the Carpathian. In the Late Tertiary period, the area was most likely a rugged bay through which a freshwater river flowed. Windstorms in the cold periods of the Quaternary contributed to the creation of loess accumulations. Slightly alkaline pH.
DOBŠICE - U HÁJKU
I organically cultivate here 0.5 hectare of vineyard with Pinot blanc, Sauvignon and Pinot noir. The name of this terroir is from the near forest park. The subsoil is formed by Paleozoic deep igneous rock, mainly granitoids, gray-green granites and quartz diorites. At the time of their formation, these rocks had an alpine character. However, this surface was reduced by weathering and erosion. During the Tertiary, a shallow sea spilled into the local landscape several times, creating rich layers of Tertiary marine sediments in the form of sand and clay. In large part, there are fossilized shells. At the beginning of the Quaternary, a river flowed through here, shaping the local landscape and gravelly terraces. There are a lot of boulders from the Thaytal. The mineral composition of the rocky subsoil gives very characteristic wines.
