Dog in Dock - the enchanting taste of Moravia

Sunny vineyard slopes, the scent of ripe fruit, and the sparkling, inspirational taste of Moravian grapes from the foothills of the White Carpathians. This is our Dog in Dock winery.

We’re a young winery in Moravian Slovakia, a region renowned for wine and sun. We’re based in Veselí nad Moravou, right beside the Baťa Canal, one of the most beautiful Moravian tourist destinations. The story of our wine comes from a long-standing Moravian winemaking tradition, and the wines from our winery have an exceptional southern character thanks to our vineyards in the foothills of the White Carpathians.

For us, wine production is a passion and an everyday joy. We pay close attention to absolute quality, the selected harmony of flavours, and the sparkliness that makes wine drinking an inspirational experience. Our philosophy is wine production in harmony with nature, which is why we use the latest technologies, which are as gentle as possible on the grapes.

Winery project: the taste of wine tourism

Our own vineyards, carefully selected and lovingly picked grapes, excellent wine, wonderful accommodation and top-class services. It has long been our dream to have our own winery project, and we’re glad that, step by step, it’s becoming reality. Our goal is to produce delicious natural wine which continues the ancient Moravian winemaking tradition. In our winery, which is currently based in Boršice and is waiting for its new form in Veselí nad Moravou, we pick the grapes manually and then process them using a very gentle method, without using pumps. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks, and selected wines are subsequently aged in wooden barrels, which give them a unique aroma and flavour. We focus on wine production from typical varieties suitable for the Moravian Slovakia region, i.e. mainly the Burgundy varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris, as well as Riesling. In our range you’ll find mostly white wines, but we’re also proud of our rosé and cuvée, and the red wines which we bottle after at least 2 years of lying in barrels. We supply wines to restaurants, hotels and wine shops, and you too can taste the delicious wines from Dog in Dock in our e-shop.

Our dream of our own winery will culminate in 2023. By then, we would like to build a new winery complex in Veselí nad Moravou, which will also include a hotel and accommodation in the form of apartments. Our goal is to build a modern winery, which will combine educational, promotional and tasting programmes with hiking and family experiences.

Experiential winemaking

Wine is an inspirational experience in itself. What else is worthy of attention in the Dog in Dock winery?

A delicious taste that has been awarded prizes

Even though we’re a young winery, our wines have succeeded in several renowned competitions. We won two gold medals in 2020 at the King of Wines competition, where the jury was impressed by our Sauvignon Blanc (2019) and Will cuvée (2019). A similar result awaited our winery in the National Wine Competition, where our Zweigeltrebe rosé (2019) and Pinot Blanc (2019) were awarded prizes. Our Chardonnay (2019) won the gold medal at the Prague Wine Trophy competition, and our Frankovka (2019) earned the respected title Wine of the South Moravian Region 2020.

A sommelier for a few moments

From May to September every year, tastings of our complete range of wines take place in the winery complex in Veselí nad Moravou. Come and savour delicious wine in the beautiful sunny atmosphere of South Moravia. In addition to the tasting itself, by agreement you can also enjoy a tour, or a guided tasting with explanations, in our current establishment in Boršice u Blatnice.

Travel with wine

The Dog in Dock winery complex is located right beside a dock on the Baťa Canal, one of the most sought-after tourist areas in South Moravia, and is connected to the Moravian wine trail, which will take you through a picturesque landscape of vineyards, from ancient Znojmo to the Moravian Slovakian metropolis of Uherské Hradiště. You can also combine wine tourism with a boat ride along the Baťa Canal, wandering around local monuments, or a fascinating visit to Moravian Slovakian festivities with folk costumes.

The genius loci of the original orangery

Our winery is inextricably linked with Veselí Castle, and especially the unique atmosphere of the original castle orangery. It’s the heart of the newly emerging cultural-educational winery complex. We’re currently producing wine in a premises in nearby Boršice u Blatnice, but the complex already includes a young vineyard, through which you can stroll in the summer with a glass of wine and enjoy the calming atmosphere of the surrounding nature.

Winemaking means culture and education

We like to consider things from multiple perspectives. That’s why we decided to approach our winery project broadly: our new complex in Veselí will not only become a tourist and family recreation centre, ideal for meditation and discovering sunny Moravia - in the Veselí winery, we also want to build a modern cultural-educational complex, which will combine playful educational, promotional and tasting programmes with civic amenities for leisure use.
