Well, this is it – My last article of ‘What I’m Drinking’ for KAM Brno. In writing this monthly column, I hope that I have been a guiding light in your Czech wine journey. 

As a wine professional, I have come to appreciate each and every village, for its diverse landscape, history, customs, and cultural traditions. Over the past two years, I have featured not only the grape varieties in my column, but the passionate producers who are the heartbeat of the country’s wine industry. Czech wine offers an unparalleled versatility in the wine world, proving that there is a local wine style available for everyone. In terms of white wine, whether you prefer the crisp, mineral driven edge of Sauvignon or Veltlín, or the lush, aromatic style of Pálava or Tramín Červený, the white wines produced in the country are exciting and vibrant. The local red wines are most notably regarded for their moderate alcohol, a lighter, more delicate tannin structure, earthiness, and focused fruit flavors. From the ruby hued, fragrant Pinot Noir and Svatovavřinecké, to the spicy, peppery tones found in Frankovka, Zweigelt, and Cabernet Moravia, Czech red wines certainly have earned their own place in the spotlight. Thank you all for reading my column, and special thanks to KAM Brno for offering me this outlet to promote wine to the English speaking community. Cheers to continued good health and local Czech víno.

Brno Expats and Lockdown – how are we faring?

On 12 March, it’d been a whole year since the CR declared the 1st state of emergency. For this rather grim anniversary, we asked foreigners living in Brno how they’ve been dealing with the challenges of the past year (and of today).

Online Programmes Offered by Museums and Galleries

Even these days there are still several ways to enjoy art. The first one is the online collections that museums and galleries offer. So from the comfort of your own home you can admire, for example, the digitized painting Head of Medusa, which returned to the Moravian Gallery in Brno this March.
