Recently my friends and I got into a very interesting place – a small wine republic of Kraví Hora. The true mini-state within the Czech Republic. They have their own currency, own post stamps and even passports! Well, of course, they are making wine there. After all, that is why we came there to sunny Grape Valley in South Moravia. However, we arrived too early and the wine season hasn’t started yet, the owners of every wine vault had only the Burchak (a young wine) to offer, or just said – “Come later.” After a short walk through the village we looked at one of the houses where we were greeted by a very sympathetic owner-winemaker named Tonda. He offered to try his delicious Burchak, and two minutes later we were in the wine cellar, where all these treasures were stored. Honestly, I do not remember how many hours we spent there, but we had very funny and informative talk. And one more time I’ve convinced, that Czechs are very friendly and welcoming.
Prepared for the further testings
