Sonberk, flagship of Czech viticulture

Located between the borders of the Western Carpathians and the Bohemian Mountains, South Moravia is one of the 14 regions of the Czech Republic. Its geographical location and its terroir make it a perfect environment to grow vine. Discover the Sonberk estate, one of Wine Explorers' favorite!



AN EXCEPTIONAL TERROIR FOR WHITE WINES


With a South/South-West exposure and poor soils composed of marine sediments and limestone, Sonberk benefits from exceptional conditions for the production of great white wines. Located on the 48th North parallel, the winery borders Austria.


An ideal terroir for grape varieties such as Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Pálava, Pinot Gris, or even Chardonnay.


A POSTCARD LANDSCAPE


Does this vineyard facing Mount Pálava and plunging into the Thaya River mean anything to you? If yes, it's normal. This is the cover photo of Wine Explorers' book! A whole symbol…


The domain owes its name to Sonnberg hill, at the foot of which it is planted, which means "the sunny hill". 


PRESERVED BIODIVERSITY


Sonberk maintains the biodiversity of its vineyard, where different plants are cultivated between the rows of vines, in order to maintain a natural balance. As for the vineyard, it is pruned and harvested exclusively by hand.


Without a doubt one of the most promising wineries in Central Europe.
