Wondering how to spend your summer? Are you a lover of wine, cycling or hiking? Discover the 1,200 kilometres of wine trails in Moravia! You can choose from a total of eighteen circuits named after the main wine centres. The routes ingeniously connect interesting places and offer visitors day trips and multi-day trips full of exercise and first-class Moravian wine. Once you start with one, you'll want to try the others! Here's a selection of the ones you shouldn't miss, along with a few tips on luxury living.
"It's a longer, but worse journey." The Znojmo Wine Route is the longest of the Moravian wine circuits with its 189 km length. It meanders through an area where aromatic white wines are key. The northern part of the trail is not so demanding, it goes between fields and vineyards. Around the Podyjí National Park, however, more challenging terrain awaits cyclists. Along the way, athletes will encounter authentic farm buildings and wines, which are not for nothing said to be the best in South Moravia.
You can start tasting them in the famous Lahofer winery. The architecturally exceptional building inspired by the shape of vineyards even won a special prize from the jury of the prestigious Best of Realty competition. Guided tastings for small groups of 12 people are organised here. You can stay in the adjacent luxury hotel of the same name, a historic property with modern features dating back to the turn of the 13th and 14th centuries. From the outside, the hotel is inconspicuous, but inside, elegant, timeless interiors await guests.
Route: Znojmo, Hnanice, Šatov, Dobšice, Božice, Břežany, Šanov, Višňové, Miroslav, Troskotovice, Vlasatice, Kubšice, Vedrovice, Moravský Krumlov, Jezeřany-Maršovice
The 98 km trail on the eastern side reaches the White Carpathian slopes. It is ideal for a few days' stay in the area of picturesque folk architecture and delicious white wines.
If you want to go beyond the fateful hundred kilometres, take a short detour to the unhigh hill Radošov (242 m above sea level) near the village called Hroznová Lhota. It is on this hill that one of the youngest lookout towers in the country is located. Its added value is the original shape of the wine goblet. From a height of 15 metres, you can enjoy a generous view of the Lower Moravian Valley in all its beauty, the Chřiby Mountains and a large part of the White Carpathians. Among others, the Moravian painter Joža Uprka worked in this village and depicted the folklore of South Moravia in his works.
Route: Sudoměřice, Petrov, Strážnice, Radějov, Tvarožná Lhota, Lipov, Blatnička, Blatnice pod Svatým Antonínkem
This wine trail is without exaggeration one of the most beautiful. The closed eighty-four-kilometre circuit follows the borders of the Mikulov wine sub-region. The route is mostly flat and runs along the river Dyje, ponds and Novomlýnské reservoirs or through the Lednice-Valtice area. The colonnade at Rajstno will also cross your bike path, and the route climbs to a moderate altitude above Valtice. In addition to the obligatory wine breaks, make a short stop along the way at the beautiful Lichtenstein Summer Castle in Lednice and the Minaret in the adjacent park, you won't regret it.
As this is a trip of a few days, make sure you book a night at the Adalbert Residence in Valtice before your trip. A luxury property with romantic rooms and first-class customer service will please everyone. Not to mention a visit to the local wine cellar!
Route: Mikulov, Valtice, Hlohovec, Lednice, Bulhary, Milovice, Dolní Věstonice, Strachotín, Ivaň, Pasohlávky
