About the winery

The listed Modřanská Vineyard, formerly known as the Archbishop's Vineyard, is situated on steep terraces above the Vltava river bank in Prague - Modřany. Historical sources document its existence for the first time in 1178, when Soběslav II donated it to the Vyšehrad Chapter. The name Archbishop's House comes from the time when it was held by the Archbishopric of Prague (1717 - 1921). In 1929 the vineyard was destroyed by frost and fruit trees were planted on the terraces. The vineyard is still reminded of this fate today, many years after the members of the Czech Gardening Association took over the land in 1987, cleared the slope and began to restore the terraces. On a large part of the land they replanted vines - mainly traditional varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Noir, Traminer, Pinot Noir and Blue Portugal, whose cultivation is documented from the 19th century. Further phases of replanting took place in 2004 and 2008-2009 thanks to grants from the Prague City Council. The grant also enabled the introduction in 2009 of the predatory mite Typhlodromus pyri, which is an ecological alternative to some sprays. The colour of the site includes not only the stunning view of the Vltava River and the surrounding slopes, the difficult-to-access terraces and their rows of at least thirty cider and table varieties, but also the fruit trees and vegetable and flower beds at the bottom of the site. The vineyard is farmed individually by members of the Czech Gardening Association, who also produce their wines individually. Bottled wines in batches of up to 100 litres, but often in volumes of less than 20 litres, are a rarity, especially for the closest circle of friends.
