Krásná hora Pictorial Tour

Biodynamic. Family. Beautiful.

Their name, Krásná hora, translates to “beautiful mountain” in English, and this family extends the beauty from the mountainside right into its winery.

When constructing their new facilities for grape processing, they underwent a modern and highly efficient yet historical interpretation of traditional village houses with saddle roofs and white facades interrupted by colored glass blocks reminiscent of windows typical of local farmhouses.

This family winery produces on average 40-50,000 bottles. Combining traditional and contemporary wine techniques, they focus on a natural approach and create brilliant, harmonious wines.

Following the lead of the 13th century monks who planted the first vineyards in the Krásna Hora line, they produce mostly traditional French varieties - such as Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Noir among others.

Krásna Hora won Czech Winery of the Year and is a Silver Winner for their Cuvée Bernety from the 2018 NY International Wine Competition.

Managing 7 hectares of certified organic vineyards, they harvest their grapes by hand and yield on average 30-40 hl/ha. They are not trying to be as large as possible, but as healthy as possible with minimal intervention, and since 2014 they have followed biodynamic methods.

All harvesting is done manually, by hand.
One element of biodynamic farming is to use homeopathic techniques to help the soils be as healthy as possible.

The vineyards are of varied soils including loess, sand, and limestone. The result is their ability to blend the unique qualities of each fruit into the beautiful wines they produce.
