About winemaker

Small family winery. Wine production has been in our family for several generations. In 1992, my father handed over a small cellar farm to me. Until September 2004 I had winemaking as a hobby. I am now a full time winemaker and viticulturist. White wines are aged on fine yeast lees, red wines are aged for a year in barrels and stainless steel tanks and at least a year in bottles. The tasting cellar, which we renovated in 2006, dates back to 1882. In 2015, we renovated the 16th century Haban cellar, where visitors can take a peek.

Basic characteristics of wine

The variety was cultivated in Velké Pavlovice in 1960 by Ing. Jaroslav Horák from Frankovka and Saint Laurence. It was named in honour of Ch. K. André, the founder of the Association for Vine and Fruit Breeding in Brno. This is one of the reasons why we can find it especially in the Velkopavlovice subregion, however, interesting André wines are definitely also produced in the Slovácko and Mikulov regions.
