The first days of September brought to the Czech Republic not only gold leaf fall, but also one of the most beautiful autumn festivals, a symbol of winemaking and autumn grape harvest - Vinobraní.

Not many know that the Czech Republic, a famous brewer country, is one of the oldest European wine producers. Winemaking traditions in the Czech Republic have more than 1000 years, and in this small country there are more than 18 000 hectares of vineyards.

Each year in the Czech Republic are produced thousands of liters of selected wine, which can compete with the famous European wine producers. There are grown such grape varieties as Ryzlik vlassky, Veltlinske zelene, Muller Thurgau, Rulandske bile (Pinot blanc), Rulandske sede (Pinot gris), Ryzlink rynsky, Frankovka, Svatovavrinecke, Rulandske modre (Pinot noir).

Traditionally in September, in the Czech most famous wine-making region Moravia, as well as in Prague is held one of the finest folk festivals - Vinobraní, dedicated to winemaking, Czech culture and traditions.

The Czech festival Vinobraní is similar to the French Beaujolais Nouveau young wine festival and is a festival of grape harvest, new wine and Czech traditions.

One of the most traditional drinks of the Vinobraní wine festival is a famous Czech Burčák - young white wine, which, as a rule, is used in the Czech Republic in the initial phases of fermentation. Incredibly popular among the young Czechs Burčák has a unique rich flavor and opaque golden-greenish color of grape bunches. But be careful! Young Burchak has a wonderful feature to intoxicate very quickly!

Apart from the traditional tasting of young wine, Vinobraní festival offers its guests a rich bright holiday program. Festival visitors are waiting for theatrical performances, fairs and performances of the folk groups, as well as musical performances and tasting the best dishes of the Czech cuisine.

Vinobraní wine festival will be held in the Czech Republic from 2 to 30 September.
