St Wenceslas Vineyard (Svatováclavská vinice)
This newly restored vineyard and adjacent Villa Richter belong to the Prague Castle complex and shouldn‘t be missed when visiting. It is accessible directly from the Castle and from the western side from Malostranská metro station. You can sample a limited edition of wine from the St Wenceslas Vineyard exclusively in the Villa Richter restaurant. In the summer season there is a takeaway stall at the vineyard and the Villa Richter restaurant opens out onto the terrace.
The Vineyard was restocked with Riesling and Pinot Noir varieties. Still planted along the scenic path are all the typical Moravian and Bohemian varieties.
The millennial history of the vineyard dates back to the 10th century, when the south slope, with it extraordinary view of the rest of Prague
was selected by Prince Wenceslas himself.
St Wenceslas Vineyard and the adjacent Villa Richter underwent extensive renovations in 2008.
