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.
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 Bratislava, 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.

“Thank you so much for making Slovakia the highlight of our entire trip. Because we only have 2 thumbs each, we are giving you a 4 thumb score for your professionalism, kindness, thoughtfulness as to how you treated us and conducted yourself on our visit. What we experienced in the villages was very special. The Zlaty Bazant and Pilsner Urquiel beers on draft were the best. Even better than the German beers. We liked the Slovak Varieto Rizling Rynsky as the best wine of the trip. Is there any way to order wines from the wine shop/restaurant that you had stop at for the wines? We ate at all 3 of your restaurant recommendations, and would like to go back there this weekend. Unfortunately we are thousands of miles away. We will have the memories for a lifetime.”
