Three centuries before Bušek of Velhartice urged Charles IV to roll Czech wines over his palate, Spytihněv II founded the oldest wine-growing region in Bohemia in 1057—the Litoměřice Region. The centuries-old tradition of vineyards in Northern Bohemia, interrupted and then renewed, is also reflected in the wines from the Johann W winery. A magnanimous approach to the renewal of vineyards, careful and gentle handiwork as well as the latest technology give us the unique opportunity to once again enjoy the wine that was last drunk a hundred years ago. Our winery’s patron is Baroness Ulrike von Levetzow. The story of her young love for Johann W. Goethe, who was two generations older, is also reflected in our wines. Freshness and joy combine with maturity and experience.
