Summer is a special season for wine lovers. As it begins, so doest the time of meeting people in the warm weather and enjoying fresh sparkling wine, rosé and Riesling. At Vinograf, Prague wine bar, they want to celebrate this, and so on June 8th, they are throwing the Riesling Rocks Open Air Festival, a big Riesling party.

Vinograf is a network of wine bars, and an unofficial Prague ambassador for the best quality wine, which collects bottles from Bohemia and Europe. The sommeliers at Vinograf take both laymen and experts on an inspiring and adventurous journey into the world of wine.

Sommelier and manager Klára Kollárová describes what is important in the selection process and her favorite wines: “To be honest, we all love Riesling in Vinograf,” she laughs and continues “But for our taste, the territorial character is important to us. The wine has to express its origins and where the wine comes from.” The Vinograf team regularly visit the fields to select new and existing winemakers and keep up to date in the world of wine technology.
