History

The family company Vinařství Zapletal was founded in 1994, but its activities follow the family tradition and date back to the beginning of the 19th century. Proof of this is the historic grape press from 1818, which is still the property of the family and is the dominant feature of the wine cellar.

The winery was founded and managed by Václav Zapletal, who built on the experience of his family ancestors with wine production and built a modern winery with honest and hard work. His son Jan stood by his side in 2005 after studying at the Secondary Wine School in Valtice and at the MZLU in Brno. Wines from our winery are produced from our own production of grapes using modern production methods with respect to traditional wine production methods (e.g. mash fermentation in vats, wine aging in wooden barrels). The winery supports ecology and is included in the Integrated Production system, which limits the use of chemicals in the cultivation of vines. Wine is a drink in which natural conditions, work and the personality of the winemaker meet, which give the wine its unique character.

Vineyard & Terroir

We are currently farming 20 hectares of fertile vineyards on these vineyards. Velké Bílovice wine production, wine sales, South Moravia winery. About 50% of this area has been newly planted since 2003. All vineyards are located in the cadastre of the town of Velké Bílovice, which falls within the Velkopavlovická sub-region. This area is climatically the warmest part of the Czech Republic, and its subsoil, which consists of black soil, loess, calcareous clays, sandstones and conglomerates, is very suitable for growing the highest quality grapes, especially blue grape varieties. Vineyard routes: Nová Hora, Zadní Hora, Dlouhá Hora, Široká Hora, Od Čejkovsko.
