The Blue Mountains lie in the heart of South Moravia and are the warmest region of our country. That is why red wines in particular thrive here.
The word "mountains" suggests that it takes a bit more energy to drive through all the beautiful and renowned wine-growing villages here. And since it's a circuit, it doesn't matter from which point along the route you start your journey around this beautiful experience.
Velké Pavlovice will attract you with its modern wine alley Opilé sklepy (Drunken Cellars) where you can also find accommodation. The Wine Breeding Station is definitely worth a visit, which has co-created the history of Moravian winemaking thanks to the André variety bred here. The entire route can be viewed from the nearby Slunečná lookout tower.

But there are plenty of places to enjoy the beautiful scenery along the route, for example above the nearby wine-growing village of Němčičky at the famous chapel of St. Anthony. However, if you want to avoid several climbs, you can take the cycle path from Slunečná directly to Bořetice.
The main attraction is the Free State of Cow Mountain, a purely wine-growing state with its own president, government, passports, anthem and flag, but above all great wine.
The next stop is Kobylí, where you should not miss the museum with a wine exposition or the charming wine locality Suchořádská Zmola. From here you will climb to the highest point of the route, Vrbice. The unique historic cellars, built into the hillside several floors above each other, are one of the most impressive experiences - you feel like you're in The Hobbit in The Lord of the Rings.
In Čejkovice, which is dominated by a majestic castle, you can visit the extensive Templar Cellars
In Čejkovice, which is dominated by a majestic castle, you can visit the extensive Templar Cellars, as well as the fragrant "herbal paradise" Sonnentor which is certainly worth a visit.
From here you can head to Podluží, where one of the most sought-after pearls of wine tourism awaits you, the largest group of wine cellars in Moravia - Nechory.
From here you will head back to the largest wine-growing village in our country - Velké Bílovice. This place is alive with wine in summer like few other places. Especially in the renowned cellar area of Belegrady, where a number of open cellars and many wine experiences await you in the early evening. You must not miss the well-known symbol of Moravian winemaking - the chapel at Hradištek, from where you can enjoy an amazing view of the almost endless lines of vineyards.
