The LAHOFER Winery (www.lahofer.cz) is one of the largest grape growers in the Czech Republic. Together with the company Vinice LAHOFER, it manages 430 hectares of land, for example on the lines Babičák, U Hájku, Volné pole, Waldberg or Lampelberg. This is where the LAHOFER Winery has placed the "Keep Your Head" wine programme (www.mejtesvojihlavu.cz). LAHOFER also takes care of the Paradise Vineyard on the historic terraces below the St. Nicholas Cathedral near the centre of Znojmo.
The winery derives its name from a native of Dobšice, the artistic carver Jan Lahofer. At the end of the 18th century, he created a unique Baroque library, which is the jewel of the Premonstratensian monastery in Prague's Strahov. Today, the LAHOFER winery is based on a strong winemaking tradition in the Znojmo region, developed using the most modern winemaking techniques and technologies. LAHOFER produces all wines of all the main Central European varieties exclusively from grapes from its own vineyards (with the exception of a special line of French wines), and sells part of its grape production to other wine producers. In 2012, following the purchase of vineyards and the retrofitting of the wine yard with new technologies, the winery's production capacity was set at a maximum annual production of 800,000 bottles. New additions to the winery's product range recently include non-alcoholic 100% grape musts and single-variety jams also made from grapes. Wines from the winery's production can be tasted daily during the tourist season in the Lampelberg wine castle near Vrbovec, in the tasting gazebo Rajská vinice near the centre of Znojmo under the St. Nicholas Cathedral, or year-round in the Hotel LAHOFER in Veselá Street in Znojmo.
