Mikulášek Winery in Vičice was founded in 2012 as a family business by Alois Mikulášek and his sons Robert and Jakub. Although Březno u Chomutova (where Vičice falls) is not well known to wine lovers, it is a historical place associated with the cultivation of grapes since at least the 13th century.
In the direction from Prague, you will exit the motorway before Chomutov to the town of Kadaň. Pass through the village of Březno and after 1km turn left to the village of Vičice. You will find us in the first house on the right, just after the sign Vičice.
The full restoration of the traditions is now being taken care of by the Vičice winery Mikulášek, which has so far reconstructed the original 1.2 ha vineyard and in 2013 planted another 3 ha of Hibernal and Sevar. A year later, 0.8ha of Solaris, which was expanded to 2ha in 2018. In the same year, the Rinot variety was planted on 1.2ha. In the following years, the plan is to expand the planting in the Zámecká line above the villages of Vičice and Stranná to a total of 15ha. The expert advisor for vine cultivation and wine production is Bc. Milan Sedláček from Valtice - a professional and versatile expert. The Mikuláškas have placed the cellar farm in a former barn (from its dating comes the name Cuvée No. 1895), part of which they have equipped with air conditioning cooling the internal environment, in which at the end of 2012 the musts were fermented for the first time in stainless steel tanks. The wines are made using natural yeasts, with some lots left on lees for a year with occasional stirring and no sulphur dioxide. The winery relies on small and carefully considered handwork to replace herbicide sprays in the vineyard and artificial interventions in the cellar. The winery is not yet organising large-scale guided tastings until the new facility is built, only for a smaller number of people.
