Zdenek Vykoukal

denek's wines come from a very unique area, which is an ancient sea bed and the hills/slopes on which the vineyards are now on were underwater cliffs. Pure limestone soils really brings an intense and saline character to the Gruner Veltliner, Rieslings, Chardonnay, Neuburger in whites and Cabernet Moravia, St Laurent and Pinot Noir in reds. Also the vin d’Austerlitz on the labels is in reference to the legendary battle of Austerlitz fought on these hills which now are dotted with vineyards. Visiting this area and walking on the path is pretty special and almost thinking back to the historic times when 240,000 soldiers battled and 100,000 perished.
