We’re a young winery in Moravian Slovakia. We’re based in Veselí nad Moravou, very close to the Baťa Canal, a popular tourist destination. Our philosophy is wine production in harmony with nature. We use the latest technology, which is as gentle as possible on the grapes. At the same time, we continue the long-standing winemaking tradition in Moravia – thanks to the vineyards in the foothills of the White Carpathians, our wines have an exceptional character.
Our main motivation is passion for wine. We’re doing what we enjoy. We pay attention to quality and harmony of flavours, we’re enthusiastic, and we strive to discover the new, as yet unknown...

Our aim is to create a natural product. The grapes are collected manually, and are then processed, using a very gentle method, without using pumps. Using a system of conveyor belts, the grapes are deseeded and transported to a press, where pressing takes place at very low pressure. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and selected wines are subsequently matured in wooden barrels.
We focus on the production of wine from typical varieties suitable for the Moravian Slovakia region, i.e. in particular Burgundian varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Riesling. In our product range, you’ll find predominantly white wines, but we’re also proud of our rosé, cuvée and red wines, which we bottle after no less than 2 years‘ maturation in barrels. We supply wines mainly to restaurants, hotels and wine shops, but also to private clients.
Despite its relatively short history, Dog in Dock has managed to succeed in several renowned competitions. Our wines were awarded 2 gold medals in the year 2020 in the King of Wines competition – it was the Sauvignon Blanc (2019) and Will cuvée (2019) which achieved success here. Dog in Dock also achieved a similar result in the National Wine Competition, where the Zweigeltrebe rosé (2019) and Pinot Blanc (2019) wines received awards. The Chardonnay (2019) was awarded a gold medal in the Prague Wine Trophy competition, while the Frankovka (2019) earned the acclaimed title of Wine of the South Moravian Region 2020.
Nové Hory is a very windy vineyard, which is exposed to the sun all day long, the grapevines grow here on clay-sand soils. The vines here are young, just four years old.
The aim of our project is to build a modern winery, which will combine educational, presentational and tasting areas, including civic amenities with leisure-time use.
Tastings of the full range of wines take place in the winery complex in Veselí nad Moravou from May to September. On request, it is also possible to arrange a tour and tasting with an explanation in our current premises in Boršice u Blatnice.
