Prague Castle and Vineyard: EU Austerity Drinking Tour Czech Republic

Wait… Where were we? Oh right! After packing a lifetime of museums, sacher torte, and gruner veltliner into three days in Vienna, we trundled onto a train and headed to Prague, Czechoslovakia (click here):

EU Map New York To Prague Day 149The trip’s pace has been manic. 149 straight days of travel demanded that we slow down.  We even rented a hotel this time.  Our first Czech wine purchase, Sovin Pinot Noir, was barely drinkable. So we head out for beer.

But fate thought otherwise.  Prague presents a tangle of streets, packed with buildings that look European but feel foreign, Eastern.  We end up on the other side of town and find… vineyards.

St Wencelas Vineyard, founded in 908 makes it Czech’s oldest.
