Just got back from a most enjoyable lunch/dinner at U Grébovky in Prague-Vršovice (you can read about them on our Prague Restaurants page on My Czech Republic). The food and dessert were delicious as usual and I finally got to try the wine from the Grébovka vineyard, i.e. wine produced from the grapes that are grown right here in Prague, in the Havlíčkovy Sady park on the border of Vršovice and Vinohrady. I didn’t expect much, but all three of us who shared the bottle and who are more or less spoiled by French and Napa Valley wines were impressed with it. It’s too bad that the vineyard has recently decided to keep all their wine to themselves and the restaurant is not going to carry it anymore. Oh well, we’ll just have to try one of their South Moravian selections next.
(Inside info: The Grébovka wine that’s going to be sold AT the vineyard has supposedly been commercialized and made into a boring table wine. I guess the only way to verify it is to go and try it.)
