In the St. Georges monastery’s archives from the Prague Castle, is a first mention of the Trojan vineyard. Situated in Troja, next to Prague, it was producing wines for our kings, generations after generations. Since the 18th Century, the little property, on which our wine grows today, was named after Jan Kašpar Salaba, the owner. The modern history of the Salabka vineyard began in the years 1953 - 1955.
During the communist regime, the vineyard was abandoned. Then Professor Vilém Kraus resurrected it 15 years ago: a rare breed of an old clone of Riesling was left. Later on, were mainly planted Pinot noir, Müller Thurgau, Scheurebe, then Pinot blanc, Pinot gris, Hibernal, Neronet and Tintet. In total 10 000 grapevines were specially imported from France like during the kingdom of Karel IV. in the 14th century. Every year, we produce and maintain the best wine quality from the region, and to propose wines with the same objective: to reach your satisfaction, like kings were use to have centuries ago.
On the right bank of the Vltava River, Salabka vineyard covers an area of approximately 4.5 hectares only. Its wines grow on the southwest slope between Troja & Bohnice. We grow wines in optimal way, thanks to the perfect South-West orientation, with a matching soil.
In the immediate vicinity of the Botanical Garden, Salabka is known as the largest vineyard in Prague to produce only top quality wine. We practice “reduction” in order to maintain high quality grapes, therefore we obtain the best of each raisin. As a result, we produce approximately 10 000 bottles of wine per annum.
The focus on quality starts as well with the technology we chose for our wine production. We offer public visits & organise wine tasting events in a dedicated room for 20 people. Last but not least, we invested in a distillery, equipped with hand hammered copper boiler, manufactured traditionaly at Bodensee by Holstein family dynastie, from generation to generation. Next year, we start the production of 2 000 bottles per annum of brandys and grapa. We are the first distillery in Prague. Recently, we built our restaurant on the remains of historic barn, keeping the original cellars. The property also offers apartments, respectively named after flavours: Cassis, Lavender, Rosemary, and after wines’ names: Pinot Noir & Rosé and Riesling, which is our wedding suite.
Salabka is located 8 km away from the city centre of Prague, 15 minutes drive by car. Salabka has parking availability at the property complex. Parking spaces are reserved for restaurant and apartment clients only.
You can also make use of the city's public transport. The bus number 112 departs from Nádraží Holešovice, which is on the Prague's Metro C line.
