Moravian and Austrian Weekends

Mikulov (formerly Nikolsburg) is a historic town on the Austrian border in the shadow of the imposing Pálava hills, the northernmost promontory of the Alps. The limestone subsoil is ideal for white wine, in particular Welschriesling.

And Austria's first DAC or demarcated region, Weinviertel, was created across the border in 2004.
