Roudnice Lobkowicz Winery
The cultivation of wine in the Roudnice region commenced in the 14th century, when Holy Roman Emperor King Charles IV, father of the Patria (also known as the father of Czech wine), first brought grape vines from Burgundy to Bohemia. The Roudnice Lobkowicz Winery came into existence two centuries later, in 1603, when Polyxena Pernštejn (1566-1642), then-owner of Roudnice Castle, its winery and nearby vineyards, married Zdeněk Vojtěch, 1st Prince Lobkowicz (1568-1628) and High Chancellor of Bohemia.
Throughout the centuries, Roudnice Lobkowicz wines have come to be known for their distinctive flavor and characteristics. They have been awarded countless gold medals at various Czech and international competitions and won the attention of connoisseurs worldwide.
Lobkowicz wines are sold at select locations, including the Roudnice Lobkowicz Winery office in the cellars of Roudnice Castle, the Lobkowicz Palace Museum Shop and the Nelahozeves Castle Gift Shop. They are also available for tasting and sale at Lobkowicz festivals and other special events.
A wine tasting can be arranged as an individual event or as part of a larger program. For more information, please see Wine Tastings.

Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar, the new book exhibition at Lobkowicz Palace, will open on 30 November and will introduce two attractive books focusing on architecture as presented by the most distinguished Baroque artists.
Exhibited will be a first edition (1622) of the work entitled Pallazi di Genova, published in Antwerp by the prominent Flemish Baroque painter Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640). The book presents detailed engravings of facades, cross sections and plans of Renaissance palaces and villas from Genoa, Italy. The second exhibited book, Castella et praetoria nobilium Brabantiae, was published by the historiographer Jacques le Roy (1633–1719). Also a first edition, it was published in Antwerp in 1694. The work is composed of more than 200 engravings and etchings.
Architecture in the Work of Peter Paul Rubens and Václav Hollar will run through 30 May 2013.
