Winery origin

Gurdau Winery was established in 2012 in the South Moravian village of Kurdějov. A year later, 7 hectares of vineyards were planted here. With this step, we proudly revived the local winemaking tradition, which had been suspended for many decades. We chose the name of the winery based on the original German name of the village - Gurdau, as a way to honor the history and heritage of the place.

Our Philosophy

Minimalism, humility, and respect – these are the characteristics that define the Gurdau. We embrace tradition, craftsmanship, and respect for nature. This family-owned business revives Kurdějov's winemaking heritage with sustainable practices and meticulous techniques. Gurdau's exceptional wines showcase the region's unique terroir, offering a blend of tradition and modern sophistication.

Our varieties

We are mainly focused on the noble variety Riesling, which we have planted in 6 clones originated from the Wachau, Alsace, Rheingau and the Pfalz. From this single variety we produce our basic line, wines aged in oak barrels, sparkling wines and also sweet wines. In addition, we grow the two more varieties which diversify our offer – Green Veltliner and Pinot Blanc.

Local Terroir and vineyards

The small wine-growing village of Kurdějov is located near Hustopeče in a deep valley, surrounded by the foothills of the Žďánice Hills. It has a unique closed microclimate, highly sloping tracks and a great exposure. For all our tracks are typical calcareous sandstones covered with calcareous loess. We currently manage 8 hectares of vineyards.

Veltliner 2020

Vesnice Kurdějov

Veltliner 2020

Dried strawflowers on the nose evoke Indian summer.

A fruit cocktail of mirabelles and gooseberries gives texture.

Green apple and pomelo bring freshness, grip, and a touch of bitterness.

Just in the end, you get a kick of the Bird's eye chili - red hot chili pepper warm.

Veltliner 18 & 20

Vesnice Kurdějov

Veltliner 18 & 20

Warm welcome with fresh warm bread and butter.
Powerful body, the richness of baked pears, clotted cream, and cookies confronted with the acidity of just-ripe peach here.

The intense concentration of allspice and ground nutmeg combined with hazelnuts and macadamia nuts comes at the end.

Demanding wine for Burgundy lovers.

Riesling 2022

Vesnice Kurdějov

Riesling 2022

Delicate and shy, aromas of chamomile and meadow flowers unite with nuanced notes of lanolin and Sicilian lemon oil. It unfolds on the palate, starting softly and building into a stunning momentum.

Powerful concentration with herbal lift and tangy delight reminiscent of Amalfi lemons captures the essence of Amalfi, from pulp to peel, including the astringent crunch of lemon seeds.

The harmonious dance of flavors continues with a blend of ripe orange and juicy peach, complemented by the touch of rosemary. The texture is like raw silk, offering a luxurious feel, leading to a long, lingering pomelo finish.
Expressive and drinking beautifully.

Veltliner 2022

Veltliner 2022

Joy and positivity. 'Golden' bouquet of Marigold flowers and Amalfi lemons, along with crisp aroma of yellow apples and a subtle hint of mint captures the essence of summer.

Both juicy and mouth-watering. Just picked mirabels and distinct peachiness creating a delightful interplay with a dry, stony minerality, almost Riesling-like in its character.

A tangy-sweet note of kumquat works hard along the spice. Plenty of the classic white pepper. Full of energy and intensity without any heaviness.

Veltliner 2021

Veltliner 2021

Light and crisp.Spring flowers followed by green apple, cooked quince with a few drops of yuzu juice, and shredded lime zest.

Terrific intensity and purity. Razor sharp acidity precision of white grapefruit and light herbal note on the long, mouth-watering finish.

Must 2021

Respect for history

The wine-making tradition of the village Kurdějov dates back over a thousand years. The first official records of vineyards here date back to the 13th century when Kurdějov was considered one of the most significant wine-growing places. In 1286, lands with vineyards were purchased for high sums, and the wine from this region was only affordable for the high nobility. Some of the vineyard locations in this region were traded for whole villages. In the 16th century, German settlers brought advancements in winemaking and increased the value of local wines.

Gurdau wines celebrated in the world as well. James Suckling review

"i always asked myself where the daring and exciting Czech wines were, and now we have the answer in the latest Gurdau offering"

"...the most remarkable of them is the Gurdau Riesling Stará Hora 2021, a dry Riesling that reminded Stuart of a top Wachau wine, but with fresher acidity.

Although Gurdau was founded back in 2012 by Zdeněk Hort and Marek Sedláček, the winery has recently been transformed by the completion of an innovative winery building designed by Aleš Fiala.
It not only houses the winery but also apartments and wine bar. Private fine dinning experience is on offer as well. Gurdau is a winery with a triple focus. Riesling. Veltliner. Pinot blanc.
