Horák is one of Moravia’s most exciting wineries. Vines were originally planted here by the Roman Emperor Probus some 276-282 CE near Pálava. The monastaries in the 14th Century upscaled the footprint left by the Romans, planting varieties from France and Germany. Finally Charles IV, King of Bohemia and the Holy Roman Empire, made a proclamation that his citizens must plant vines on every mountain around Prague, cementing Czechia’s tradition of winemaking. Today the winery is run by winemaker Leoš Horák.
