Chateau Litomyšl


18-010In the climatically ideal environment of the castle cellars the unique wine range Chateau Litomyšl is maturing in bottles. This wine was made by Moravian winemakers only for this range. They cannot be bought anywhere other than in the town of the Smetana Festival.

A cuvée (or sometimes coupage) is always prepared from three varieties of wine. A special coupage of wines with special qualities has been created on the basis of the sensory requirements of the cellar-master of the Smetana’s Litomyšl association. This results in a delicious, balanced harmonic wine with a noble colour, sparkling with the golden autumn sun. The aroma of the wine is highly diverse and offers much. Everyone will find a taste to their liking in this wine.

The Chateau Litomyšl wines are closely linked to the exhibition of the sculptures of Olbram Zoubek in the castle cellars. They carry the names of three of the figures there - Clytemnestra, Iphigenia and Agamemnon.

The offer includes up to nine types of red and white wine, such as for example Veltlínské zelené (Gruner Veltliner), Pálava, Chardonnay, Rulandské bile (Pinot Blanc), Müller Thurgau, Rulandské modré (Pinot Noir) or Svatovavřinecké (St. Laurent)…

You will be able to access your wine at any time during the opening hours of the cellars (of course without paying to enter the exhibition), and outside of opening hours with previous agreement with our cellar-master.

Included in the fee for the rental of a box of 6000 CZK/year are 2 evenings of free rental of the wine bar of the castle wine bank for your social events.

Blind Tasting

During a blind tasting aside from sampling wine you will also have fun. Wines are placed around the cellars (the number is subject to agreement) with hidden labels so that the customer does not know what they are tasting. On entry to the castle cellars you will get a list with the names of the placed wines. The task is then to match this to the wine at the numbered station. At the end of the tasting it will be revealed who has been successful. The correct answer will be rewarded.

Blind tastings can also be arranged for children who will be given various types of fruit juice.

Price on agreement by number of wines/juices.
