Tid för vinfestival i Tjeckien

Favoritmarkera

Tjeckiska statens turistbyrå informerar om september månads intensiva festivalprogram vilket går i vinets tecken. I Tjeckien som i många andra av Europas byar är vinproduktionen  småskalig och producenten en lantbrukare i ordets mest positiva bemärkelse. Tradition är att fira årets skörd, att druvorna är bärgade och pressade och vinet jäser. För vinälskaren som längtar efter en långweekend visar vi årets lista på vinfestivaler i Tjeckien.

Mělník Grape Harvest, 16–18 September 2011
A traditional town festival – folk crafts, fencing duels, street entertainment, a historical military encampment, the procession of Charles IV and his retinue, fireworks, and, above all, plenty of Mělník wine. The first wine festival took place here in 1878, marking the 500 year anniversary of Charles IV’s passing. At that time, the Central Bohemian town of Mělník was given a statue of Charles IV from Jan Neuberg (located today on the lookout behind the Mělník chateau). In 1911, a similar wine festival, conceived as a public celebration, was held. Today, the event has a truly spectacular character. The programme takes place on four stages: The main stage will be located at Náměstí Míru. The stage on Husova Street will feature country music, while sword duels, period dances and jugglers can be seen at the historical stage at Palackého náměstí. Finally, the Svatováclavská (St. Wenceslas) arts and crafts lane will host the Jarmark (or Market Fair) stage with exhibits relating to history and tradition. The celebrations reach their peak Saturday evening, when King Charles IV comes to town with his entourage to inspect the grape harvest and taste the Mělník wine. Celebratory fireworks will light up the city in tribute to this rare visit. vill du veta mer, gå hit. 

Litoměřice Wine Festival, 23–24 September 2011
What awaits you during the Litoměřice Wine Festival at Mírové náměstí? A main stage, children’s stage, street stage and jazz stage, each with its own programme all taking place simultaneously. The street stage, flanked by a number of market stands and a knights’ encampment, will offer Gothic-period music, dance shows, theatre, jugglers, stilt walkers, a number of scenes from life in the Middle Ages, and jousting tournaments with dozens of participants. Of course, a royal procession headed by Charles IV is also part of the festival.

A completely new feature will be the big Winemakers’ Tent, which will complement the offer of the popular burčák and tap wine stands with an expert presentation of varietal wines led by members of the Bohemian Winemakers’ Guild. The Litoměřice Wine Festival in the stunning Central Bohemian Uplands should certainly not be missed.

Karlštejn Wine Festival, 24–25 September 2011
The already 15th Karlštejn Wine Festival takes place once again at perhaps the most famous castle in Bohemia. The 250-member procession in Gothic costumes headed by Holy Roman Emperor and King of Bohemia Charles IV and his wife Elizabeth of Pomerania will guide visitors of the Central Bohemian Karlštejn Castle back to the 14th century. You can look forward not only to tasting wine, burčák and culinary delicacies, but also to historical stands with demonstrations of traditional crafts, fencing, juggling and piper shows. Also part of the rich programme for children and adults is instruction in historical dances and an evening fire show. During both days, this programme takes place both at the castle and in the castle surroundings.
