Paczków is one of the oldest Polish cities, city rights were granted to it at the beginning of the thirteenth century. Called the Polish Carcassonne Paczków offers a lot of attractions.
It is the only Polish town surrounded by a defensive wall from the fourteenth century, with 19 towers and three gate towers preserved in excellent condition.
Located at the foot of the ‘Hopla’ hill reigning over Paczków is based on light sandy soil with coarser quartz debris.
And at the foot of the vineyard, next to the historic barn from the eighteenth century, there is an even more advanced in years historic cowshed. In this restored building there is a wine cellar and rooms where the wines are produced!
Siegerrebe (literally ‘Victory vine’ in German) is a white wine grape that is a must try!
Hople’s individual wines are named after car models from the Metamuseum Automotive which is right next to the vineyard.
Very good white wine of the Siegerrebe variety, in aroma reminiscent of gewürztraminer from which it derives. Apple and floral notes dominate the nose, a noticeable note of tea rose. The taste is strong, thick, lively, long remains in the taste buds. It’s a dry wine that texturally feels as though it’s going to be a dessert wine! Lush!
Try with Riebekuchen (potato fritters served with stewed apples), honey-glazed ham or a lightly spiced coconut curry
