To popular demand, we have created a new “wine trip” for our expats.
Join us for a hike through vineyards and meet winemaker Vojta Válka in his family winery, learn about wine, taste local products, explore a new place, and meet new people.
Arielle DeSoucey picked a winery for us: “I’ve used Válka’s wines in tastings before, and they are always a big hit. They are certified organic, produce whites, roses, and reds, and are just really great, friendly people. Vojta speaks English perfectly, so it would be the ideal scenario for you. Plus, I like the fact that they’re still a family winery, and they are only 30 minutes from Brno. Their wines are also very reasonably priced, so people could easily pick up a few bottles of what they like.”
Before meeting Vojta in his winery, we will do a two-hour hike to a look-out tower and through the vineyards.
MEETING POINT is Hlavní nádraží (Main train station) Brno on Saturday, August 21 at 9:20.
We will follow the “green” tourist trail from Zidlochovice to Lookout tower “Výhon”. Then follow the “blue” trail to Nosislav. Total distance 7km, elevation difference 200m.

We will spend the afternoon with Vojta Válka, a winemaker from Nosislav. Vojta will show us his vineyard, take us to the family winery VÁLKA, guide us through a wine tasting and tell us more about winemaking, wine tradition in Moravia, and family history.
The winery sells food from snacks to grilled steak, fish, cheese… Complete menu and price list here (not included in the wine tasting price).
And don’t forget to have a bag and money (cash or credit card) for wine bottles, in case you are planning to buy some to bring home.
