For many centuries, the main trade in Bratislava was wine. The Old Town and Castle were in those days surrounded by vineyards. Many vintners and wine merchants lived in houses where wine was made and stored. Thanks to them we have not only a rich tradition in wine making but also numerous secluded courtyards and cellars from the past.
On this tour your will learn about Bratislava’s history with the emphasis on wine and its production and storage. You will explore numerous historic courtyards and cellars and finish the tour with a wine tasting of some of the best Slovakian wines in a medieval cellar.
In recent years Slovak wines have been enjoying a lot of attention at wine shows such as Paris, Vienna, London, Madrid. A younger generation has moved into the wine industry. This generation has been able to implement modern winemaking knowledge and technology, making for a blossoming wine scene. In Slovakia, you'll find a wide variety of grapes: everything from well-known Central European grapes to local varieties you can't find elsewhere. The local winemakers create truly surprising and extraordinary wines, often unusual, even compelling. You’re almost certainly not going to find any of these wines unless you go to Slovakia.
