VINOFOL is a family winery run by Foltyn brothers – Pavel and Richard. The winery was started in early 90s and already at its start the Foltyn brothers focused in production of modern style wines, which is also reflected in the winery´s up-to-date technology. However, Pavel and Richard do not rely on the processing technology only, and both unanimously stress the paramount importance of winery own cultivated vineyards that are grown on some of the best sites and limestone slopes of the Palava Highland and also on historical and traditional vine sites that stretch along the Czech-Austrian border. Thanks to the unique terroir of VINOFOL vineyard and mainly the Palava Highland the winery produces modern fruit driven and mineral wines. A peculiar VINOFOL passion, in fact a great passion of both Foltyn brothers, is a long-lasting sponsorship of Czech ice hockey and soccer national teams. As both brothers put it: Sports as well as wine is an important part of Czech traditions and national pride.
