The company VÍNO BLATEL, a.s. was founded in 1990 and focuses on the processing of grapes and the production and sale of wine. The company's headquarters are located in the village of Blatnice pod Svatým Antonínkem, in a region with exceptionally favourable conditions for growing grapes. It is one of the northernmost wineries in the Czech Republic and Europe. Wine is grown on 284 hectares in this municipality, of which the company farms 189 hectares. The wine-growing area is dominated by the famous pilgrimage site of St. Anthony. Paintings by Joža Uprka and other painters of the Slovácko region have made this place of religious and social tradition very attractive. The main varieties that predominate in the vineyards are Riesling, Müller Thurgau, Muscat of Moravia, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The company is the largest domestic grower of the Merlot variety. The wine of this variety is often awarded at prestigious exhibitions.

Specialties in the menu

We own the Plachta vineyard, which has always been an expression of the prestige of the Blatnik winery. Already in the 16th century, the important townsmen from Uherské Hradiště, Kroměříž and Uherský Brod had their vineyards in this line. Jan Amos Komenský, the 'teacher of nations', also had his vineyard in this area. He inherited it in 1604 from his father. On this famous area, apart from the varieties Frankovka and Svatovavřinecké, in 2001 we planted the first bushes of the MERLOT variety, which comes from France and is close to the Cabernet Franc variety. This variety had not been grown in the country before or was very rarely found. We were all discouraged from growing MERLOT because the local climatic conditions are not ideal for growing it. However, we went hard for it and planted this variety on almost 9 hectares. With this planting we became the largest MERLOT growers in the Czech Republic. The very first harvest, which we harvested in 2004, was unique and produced an excellent wine. Since then, MERLOT from Blatnice Plachet has won awards at prestigious exhibitions and great appreciation from its consumers.
