“Have you ever taken a paved road of 28% slope? There are roads like that just near our Trzebnickie Hills Vineyard. It’s the famous Prababcia pass. My wines include crafty pet-nats and some vitis vinifera Lower Silesian wonders. Be my guests!”
“The surroundings of my vineyard is full of gorges, an abandoned manor and a lavender field. In the nearby Świat Alpak, you can walk an Andean animal on a leash, and in the vineyard there’s always space for a barbecue or to park a camping van. See you soon!”
The Tour FAQ
What wines will I taste?
Pinot Noir from Rafał Wesołowski will be the king of Trzebnickie Hills reds. The co-regent will be the Regent Barrique from the 55-100 vineyard. Northern Lower Silesia is also good for whites and pet-nats – plenty of them await on the second day of the tour. For a very dense blueberry red, we will go to the L’Opera Vineyard, right near Trzebnica.
How to move around?
The road infrastructure is mainly asphalt. There are occasional gravel roads and old paved roads (what a beauty they are!). We will choose a comfortable and safe route. It will be comfortable for intermediate bikers, not many uphill rides. You may also choose to go in bus all the way!
What is the history of trzebnickie Hills?
Katzengebirge – the Cat Mountains is the German name of this microregion. Perfect soil and the mildest climate of Poland are key to ages old traditions of winemaking.
The history of Lower Silesia is visible in each house, where brick and Franconian style village plans rule. Trzebnica will tell you the story of the Middle Ages, when St Hedwig first founded a monastery here and then walked barefoot on the surrounding fields – because she never wanted to show off the riches of a princely family.
Any trails here?
The Trzebnickie Hills boast many well-signposted trails. There will be spots with asphalt bike paths. Historical paved roads abound and there is plenty of agriculture – the fields are yellow in May… We recommend the mapy.cz portal for navigation. You will find all the paths marked on their maps.
