Cuvee 2017 - information for wine producers & merchants

The 15th edition of this unique international competition of blends and branded wines will be held on the 10th and 27th April by the Club of Ostrava’s Wine Aficionados, K.A.H.A.N. in conjunction with the Zábřeh Castle Hotel in Ostrava and the National Wine Centre which is based in Valtice.


The presumptuous aim of the organisers of Cuvée Ostrava competition is to witness a renaissance of the good name of blends or brands and their return to the forefront of the products on offer from Czech and Moravian winemakers, as is customary in other major wine-producing countries. In the words of the spiritual father of the competition Professor Vilém Kraus: "There's no Cuvée like a Cuvée", meaning that each and every blend is different.
