Great Moravian era. In the 13th century, the regions of Mikulov and Valtice became a part of the Lichtenstein family
manor and wine trade was one of the main sources for living. The conditions for wine growing are ideal in this area,
mainly for white grapes. The typical varieties of the area include Riesling, White Rulande or Chardonnay. The varieties
Pálava and Aurelius were bread on Perná.

Museum in Mikulov.
