Mikulov Travel Guide
Alcohol / Tourism / → All Tags
Last night we attended an event for the Czech hamlet of Mikulov, a pristine Moravian village near the southern border with Austria. It looked rather picturesque--though we've never seen so many blue skies in all our time in the Czech Republic, so we suspect some Photoshop may have been involved.
Anyway, because that part of the Czech Republic is all about wine--despite having the highest consumption of beer per capita of any country, they do make wine there too--the organizers served wines from the region at the event. Not available in stores! We recommend the rosé, ourselves. Everything else was too sweet. Even the bartender gave us flak for drinking a girly wine, but it was still better dryer than the rest.
Keep an eye out for Mikulov, though. Austrian wines are just now beginning to get respect in the U.S., so maybe Czech wines could be next, and they've got a cute town as a selling point. In the meantime, though, keep that Pilsner Urquell coming.
