You’ve probably read it somewhere online, or you heard it in the news. Czech Republic suffers from a drought, and although it has rained a bit, it does not seem like the problem is solved. What does it mean for vineyards at Sonberk? According to our winemaker, Roman Slouk, fortunately, nothing. He's more than happy. This year's weather is so desirable for future grapes.

"This year we have nothing to complain about. Actually, until Easter it was cold and then it was beautiful, so the vine is compared with the past ten days ahead and everything grows fast. Within a week, it’ll begin to blossom, so the rain came exactly when it was needed, "said Roman, who also pleased the rain because of its release of nitrogen and other nutrients in the soil. "Grapevine is in such a great condition like we have not experienced it for a long time," says Roman.
