About the winery

The iconic view of Pálava, the architecture and the characteristic wines, appreciated in the country and in the world, are the main features of the winery in Popice u Hustopečí. A place where vines have been cultivated for centuries is now a place where modern winemaking is demonstrated: careful work with the soil and vineyards, hand harvesting of grapes, gentle processing, making wine with self-confidence and the widest possible openness to people coming to enjoy it all in the Sonberian motto "Wines with all the senses".

From the D2 motorway at exit 25 to Hustopece, then towards Breclav on road number 425, after the traffic lights turn right towards Popice, road number 420, at the roundabout turn right to Popice, after 1000 metres (before the turn to Strachotín) turn right to the SONBERK wine house.
