The Chateau Winery in Třebívlice can be found in the charming area of České středohoří (Central Bohemian Mountains). It is a part of the oldest vineyard region in the Czech Republic established in the mid-11th century.
In the Middle Ages the area around Litoměřice, which Třebívlice falls under, was the second largest wine-growing region in Bohemia, coming in just behind Prague. Unfortunately, for some time the Třebívlice tradition came to a halt in the 19th century due to grape phylloxera. The restoration began in 2004 and since then vineyards have been spreading around the area.

Wine with the attribute of love

The labels of the Třebívlice wine bottles depict a gracious and beautiful lady, whose name is Baroness Ulrike von Levetzow. You may have heard of her as she was the last love of the outstanding German poet Johann Wolfgang Goethe. At the age of 72, he fell in love with her, when he met her in North Bohemia. Unfortunately, she was just 17 so their love remained unfulfilled. Suffering from a broken heart, Goethe would never return to his beloved Bohemia and died a few years after their meeting. Ulrike lived to be 95 and spent most of her life at the Třebívlice Chateau, where she was also laid to rest. The two of them have met again, at least symbolically, thanks to the winery printing the poet’s name and the beautiful face of his last Muse on the labels of its bottles.

Dine like a President

The Třebívlice vines are planted on a limestone massif and basalt volcanic rock. Thanks to this and obviously also to the climate the wines produced in this area boast a pleasant aroma and a unique character with a distinctive mineral content. The varieties grown in the local vineyards include Müller-Thurgau, Moravian Muscat, Sylvan Green, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Gewurztraminer. You can have lunch or dinner at the renowned winery’s restaurant, which was visited by none other than the President of the Czech Republic.
