Modra: Private Wine Tasting at a Family-Operated Winery

1. Modra: Private Wine Tasting at a Family-Operated Winery

We are a family operated winery in Modra, let us show you the wonderful wines from our vineyards and wine cellar! Modra is an old royal city worth visiting for its charming romantic setting in the Small Carpathians, and has been known for centuries for its wine production and quality ceramics. What's more, the great codifier of Slovak language Ľudovít Štúr lived and died here. Modra offers you excellent wines, great food and peaceful surroundings. Thanks to the deep enological knowledge, love of vineyards, an emphasis on clean technology and a combination of traditional and modern approaches to wine-making, our wines have a small but distinct Carpathian dimension, full of minerality and pleasant aromas. Our excellent wines offer you a touch of flowers, medlar, mulberries and even figs and kiwi, which also flourish in our gardens. We hope that, after visiting us, our wines will always remind you of long and idyllic walks through the rolling hills of Modra. We own 5 hectares of planted vineyards. We produce wines from typical white varieties like Green Silvaner, Green Veltliner, Red Traminer, Oliver Irsai, Devin, Pinot gris, and Welchsriesling but also from Sauvignon and Chardonnay. We are famous for excellent red wines too, including Hron, Cabernet Sauvignon, Neronet, Dornfelder, and Saint Laurent. Our winemaker is respected authority in his field, not only in Slovakia but worldwide, often travelling abroad as the international judge in the prestigious wine competitions.

Be picked up from the lobby of your hotel and embark on the journey towards the Small Carpathian Wine Region. This area is located on the south-eastern slopes of the Small Carpathians and is one of the eight winegrowing regions of Slovakia. Arrive at the Red Stone Castle, one of the most romantic castles of Slovakia, with vast cellars which were once used as warehouses for copper. To enter, you can pay an additional fee.

Modra is famous for being the birthplace of Slovakian national hero Ludovit Stur, who fought for the autonomy of Slovakia in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Stur also had a significant influence on the revival of the Slovak language and introduced the Slovak language standard. Learn more about his importance in Slovak history as you wander around the medieval town center. Next, visit Pezinok, the capital city of Slovak wine production. Enjoy a walking tour in the historical city center of Pezinok with the option of entering the Majolica Pottery Factory. Continue towards the small town of Svaty Jur to discover its charming streets.

Very relaxed, very authentic and very personal. Wine tasting at this local family business was the best part of our trip to Slovakia. It is clear how much passion they have for their work and they are excellent at what they do. We took the train to Pezinok from Bratislava (~€2pp return) then the bus onward to Modra (~€2pp return). At the tasting we learned all about the history of Wine in the region and all about the process of wine making, and saw round the new venue they are currently renovating in Modra. We tasted around 9 samples to compare flavours and had bread, cheese and traditional Slovak cold pork. Fedors son who lead the tasting was a lovely charismatic person who knew his craft well. We really enjoyed sipping wine and chatting to him for a couple of hours in sunny Modra. I would 100% recommend this experience, if you are in Slovakia you must come and visit!

Unforgettable experience - cannot fault and hugely recommend

Family run business, authentic experience in a beautiful picturesque town. Fantastic tasting wine, devoted and genuine guide - an all-round winner that was the highlight of our holiday in Bratislava. Thank you for a truly unforgettable experience!

Best Wine Tasting I’ve Ever Been To!

Can’t say enough about this. It is so private and not commercialized at all. Being able to sit outdoors and try the wines was such an amazing experience. Would 100% recommend! Support a family business!

Absolutely amazing!

Very low key, very nice and interesting. One of the best experiences in Slovakia. Not to mention, great wines. Highly recommend this!

Very interesting tour of the castle, ceramic shop and wine tasting. Unfortunately, the wine museum was closed on Monday
