Wine is another favourite alcoholic beverage Czechs. Its production in the country has a long tradition. It is a fluid, which is made from the vine. Wines can be divided according to different criteria – by colour or by the sugar content.
Wines are distinguished by the colour on the white, red and pink. The most widely used are mainly white wines. These are produced from white, pink, red or purple grapes. Rose wine is probably the least widespread wine. It is produced only from blue grapes without fermentation. Red wines are the second most common group of wines. It is made of red grapes. According to the sugar content of wine can be divided into dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet and sweet.
Among the white wines include Chardonnay, Moravian Muscat, Müller Thurgau, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon, Veltliner or Gewurztraminer. This is just a small list of the most common wines that are produced in the Czech Republic. Among red wines include, for example, Lemberger, Merlot, Blue Portugal, St. Laurent and Zweigelt.
