About the winery

In the Botanical Garden Prague in Troja you will find St. Clare's Vineyard with a magical view of the whole metropolis. The listed St. Clare's Vineyard, together with other vineyards, recalls the former glory of Prague winemaking. The botanical garden continued the vineyard's nearly 800-year history when it took over the vineyard in 1995. In addition to the restoration of the vineyard, it began to build a wine trail and gradually opened the vineyard to the public.

The first wine from the new era under the management of the Prague Botanical Garden that visitors could taste was the 2004 vintage. Until 2008 we processed grapes in the Chloumek winery in Mělník. Since the 2009 harvest we have been processing grapes directly in our newly built cellar with modern technology.
Thanks to the excellent terroir and the efforts of the workers who take care of the vineyard, the grapes are of very high quality. The wines produced are the result of an effort to combine the traditional way of growing grapes with modern reductive winemaking technology.
We produce mostly varietal wines, but we do produce a few cuvées each year.
For red wines, we rely on a minimum of two years of aging in oak barrels.
The local white wines are typical for their varietal purity, brisk acidity and freshness.

The range of vines found in this historic vineyard is very extensive and consists of a production part and a demonstration part. On the production part, the white grape varieties represented are Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Sauvignon, Muscat of Moravia, Tramin red, Riesling and Pinot Noir. Among the red cider varieties, there is Blue Portugal and Pinot Noir. The table grape varieties planted in the production area are Chrupka White, Chrupka Red and Královna vinice. In the demonstration section there is an assortment of almost all grape varieties that are allowed for cultivation and wine production in the Czech Republic. Another part of the demonstration vineyard is an assortment of about fifty table grape varieties, where there are varieties suitable for outdoor and greenhouse cultivation, varieties with different size and colour of grapes and berries. There are also varieties with grapes weighing up to one kilogram, varieties suitable for direct consumption but also for preserving or making light table wines.

Additional offer

Since 2004, a new educational trail has been created and is constantly being expanded with new educational elements.
The first interactive stop is the Tree of Scents and Scented Barrels, where everyone can test whether they can smell what they smell without visual perception.
Vine growers will certainly be interested in the info stands, where they can read complete information about the cultivation and care of the vines and see practical demonstrations of the different types of vine pruning and subsequent vine management.
A large part of the local wine trail is occupied by examples of grape varieties, where their botanical description, resistance to diseases and pests and their suitability for subsequent processing are presented. Here you will find the most common grape varieties planted, which are registered in the State Variety Book and from which wine can be produced in our country. The next section is made up of table grape varieties, i.e. those suitable for direct consumption.
The newest addition is an exposition of cork. There are several stops, such as a showcase on the cork oak itself or the production of cork stoppers and other cork products. Large-format photographs show cork plantations, the harvesting of cork and its transformation into cork plugs. The whole exhibition is complemented by a live cork oak tree and a corking area for children and adults.
