  • This great roundup of Europe's best wine regions includes all the usual suspects - but also some you don't hear about, including Moravia. I visited in the 1990s, and despite its centuries-old winemaking history, I felt that in terms of quality it hadn't yet recoverd from the degradation of the Communist era. Now it seems things have changed:

    Discover the best wine regions of Europe, from well-known destinations like Tuscany and Bordeaux to hidden gems like Lavaux and Moravia.
  • Having lived years ago in Prague for 13 months, I was fortunate to visit a slew of beautiful towns and cities outside the capital, too many of which get overlooked by visitors. And the UK Guardian just profiled five of them:

    DAY 1 ~ Mikulov and southern Moravia

    Arrive in Vienna. Your trip leader will meet you at the airport and transfer you to the small medieval town of Mikulov in southern Moravia. (If you have arrived a day or two early, the guide will pick you up at your hotel.) After checking into the hotel, you may explore the town and its noted Renaissance chateau that dominates the skyline. Within the chateau is a regional museum with many wine-making artifacts (this is the heart of the wine district). You can also take an easy walk to Pálava Hills, a group of limestone hills with unique flora and fauna along the Czech-Austrian Border that is a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Later you can walk through the magnificent park in the town of Lednice, with its fountains, extensive views, castle ruins, and lake with 15 islands. Transfer one hour to the town of Uherske Hradiste. Welcome dinner with wine tasting.

    DAY 2 ~ Slovácko

    In the morning you’ll take an easy walk through the beautiful orchid meadows of the White Carpathian Mountains. Later, you’ll travel to the village of Petrov and visit an interesting group of Baroque wine cellars from the 18th and 19th centuries where you may taste local wines. This area is also known for its folklore traditions—the area between the White Carpathians and Chriby Hills is called Slovácko and it is here where the most distinctive cultural traditions of the Czech Republic survive. The area below Chriby Hills is also known for its very good quality of wines. You’ll stop at an open air museum (locally called a skansen) in Straznice where you can view buildings from the last century, followed by wine tasting in a private wine cellar.


    A festival of folklore, with participation of ensembles from the Czech Republic and abroad. Over three days, the tiny village of Vlčnov offers its invitation to the most important cultural event, displaying not only the beauty and variety of Moravian folk costumes, song, dance and handicrafts ...

    DAY 3 ~ Buchlov Castle – Buchlovice Chateau – Velehrad

    In the morning, you’ll walk through beech forests to Buchlov Castle, set on a hilltop and one of the oldest in Moravia, founded in the 13th century. Later, continue to Buchlovice, visiting Buchlovice Chateau, an 18th-century Italian chateau still containing most of its original Rococo furniture left behind by the family when they fled to Austria in 1945. The chateau’s wine cellar will give you another opportunity for wine tasting! Then, you’ll visit the little town of Velehrad with its beautiful cathedral from the 9th century. It is one of the most important pilgrimage sites of the Czech Republic.


    DAY 4 ~ Slavonice – Telc – Trebon – sightseeing day

    After breakfast, we leave Hradiste and continue to the beautiful town of Telc, another UNESCO World Heritage Site that’s noted for its Gothic castle. Later, we visit the handsome Renaissance town of Slavonice. After an hour of driving we reach the medieval town of Trebon, noted for its pretty red-roofed buildings.

    DAY 5 ~ Trebon – Cesky Krumlov

    The countryside around Trebon is called Trebonsko, and it is an important Landscape Protected Area with a large network of interconnecting canals and fishponds dating from the 15th century. (Some of the local restaurants offer fish specialties that are really worth trying.) We’ll take a sightseeing tour around the town center, including the Neo-Gothic chapel of the Schwarzenberg family, the Regent brewery (one of the oldest Czech breweries, founded in 1379), and walk along the banks of the fish ponds. Later, we transfer to Cesky Krumlov, the best-preserved medieval town in the Czech Republic (and yet another World Heritage Site). Accommodations are at a hotel in the historical center of Cesky Krumlov.


    DAY 6 ~ Cesky Krumlov

    We’ll enjoy a sightseeing tour of the town, including a tour of the Krumlov Chateau, the second largest residence (after Prague Castle) in Bohemia. It was built in the 13th century and converted into a Renaissance chateau in the 16th century. The large park, of French design, is another highlight of the town, as well as the 18th-century Rococo theater and the museum dedicated to Egon Schiele, the Austrian painter who moved to Krumlov in 1911. In the afternoon, we may walk to Zlata Koruna or visit Vyssi Brod, where a 13th-century Cistercian monastery and museum are situated. The library decorated in Rococo gold is definitely a “must-see.”


    DAY 7 ~ ~ Cesky Krumlov – Prague

    We’ll begin to make our way toward Prague, with a possible stop at the village of Holasovice, a wonderful example of a traditional central European village. Arrive in Prague in the afternoon and enjoy a short walk through the historical center. Depart Prague. (Additional afternoon sightseeing in Prague can be arranged.) 

     Land cost starts from 750 EUR/person for group of 4. Including nice hotels, transport, guide, services.
