VINO HORT is a mid-sized family winery from Znojmo wine area. It is a relatively new winery started in 1999 run by Mr. Jiri Hort, who started his wine career shortly after his education at wine university as a wine broker and a négociant gradually working toward his goal of running his own winery. The winery does not grow own fruit, but specializes in long and close cooperation with several growers and viticulturists, that grow their vineyards at specific sites that suit Mr. Hort´s chosen varieties the best. This approach is also reflected in the winery slogan that reads: Variety & Site.
All the grapes are processed at the Hort wine cellar in a small wine village Dobsice near Znojmo. Jiri Hort applies different wine processing techniques in compliance with each variety and mainly respecting the place of its origin. As Jiri Hort puts it: I am not afraid to experiment with my fruit unless the whole process is in harmony with the nature and natural process of winemaking. The winery speciality and flag ship wines are its rosés. In fact, Hort is recognized as the “uncrowned king” of rosé in the Czech Republic. Fruit driven, fresh with creamy texture and pleasant finish this is some of the attributes given to his rose.
