On 24 and 25 May, the winemakers of the Small Carpathian region invite you to their cellars. Come and enjoy young wines – this year’s wines, as well as those that have been aging in barrels for a few months.

The 17th year of the traditional opening of cellars on St. Urban’s Day, associated with the opening of the season on the Small Carpathian Wine Route. You can visit the open cellars in 20 villages and towns of the Lesser Carpathian region.

St. Urban is the patron saint of winegrowers, winemakers, friends of good wine, coopers and last but not least he was supposed to protect people from drunkenness and vineyards from frost. Every year, therefore, wine-growing areas commemorate his importance not only by tasting fine wine, but also by blessing his statues.

Wander into the romantic nooks and crannies of the vineyards on the slopes of the Little Carpathian Mountains and into the magical cellars, where delicious wine will be poured straight from the barrel. Treat yourself to an authentic taste of what has been harvested in the vineyards of the Small Carpathians in the region between Bratislava and the neighbouring regional town of Trnava. Dozens of open cellars and winemakers will be waiting for you on the wine route and will be happy to guide you through them. Cheers!

During the two days you will meet winemakers who are proud of the fact that their wines made from the grapes of the Small Carpathian vineyards taste not only at home, but also in the world, as evidenced by the growing number of reports of award-winning wines from exhibitions that have crossed the borders of Europe.

You have a unique opportunity to taste them directly from the producer in the home environment and often in the cellar, but also in a modern winery, which will enchant you not only with great wines, but also with exceptional architecture.

The beginning of your wine journey or your wanderings can be in Devín, where you can taste not only grape wines but also typical currant wines, of which the Devín inhabitants are so proud of. The best Frankovka in the region can be tasted in Rača.

Svätý Jur offers the most historical cellars. The oldest cellar is the Renaissance House, which already 500 years ago awakened people’s appetite for a sip of wine in its stone cellars. For the first time, you will have the opportunity to see the newly renovated beautiful Pállfy Manor House. From Svätý Jur via the stop in Grinava, you will have a glimpse into the old wine-grower’s vaulted house from 1887. Just opposite, however, you will find a modern wine schowroom for comparison. The wine road leads on through Limbach, where don’t forget to taste the famous Limbašský silván. Pezinok will welcome you with the majestic Castle Cellar. Modra, a typical wine town, has the most cellars, which you can easily pass on foot, and the last town is Trnava, where you will visit one of the most famous wineries in the region. Of course, your journey can start here as well. There are many cellars, each of them is different, in each of them you will find a unique story of a winemaker…

But the Open Cellar Day is not just about wine, it’s about the beautiful vineyard-studded landscape, the regional gastronomy, often prepared by a skillful winemaker, the accompanying programme, where music plays in the cellars to accompany a glass of wine. Over the course of two days, history alternates with the present and opens its doors and gates to 130 cellars in 25 towns and villages in the Lesser Carpathian region.

We will open for you 100 of the most beautiful cellars on the Lesser Carpathian Wine Route
