The Slovacko wine region lies in the south-east corner of the Czech Republic, bordering Slovakia and Austria. The name of the wine region is derived from “Slovakia” as it lies on its borders and shares similar customs and accent. This is the region where folklore, festivities, traditions and even local folk costumes are still alive and cherished.
The region has very heterogeneous natural vine growing conditions. In the south, the majority of the wine communes are situated in the valley of the river Morava, cooled by north-east winds. The most advantageous vineyard positions are on the hillside breaches over the Kyjovka stream or on the more elevated plains with their light soil. The altitude and lightness of the soil will dictate the intensity of summer temperature, thus giving wines that burst forth with varietal character.
