The name "Trojslava" is one of the oldest vineyard names documented in Bohemia – first time mentioned in 1372 during the reign of Emperor Charles IV. Trojslava means something like "Three-times-famed", because it had been located on the border of three regions and produced wine of extraordinary fame for ages. Prince Ferdinand Lobkowicz was awarded the highest prize of all Austro-Hungarian wines for a red wine from Trojslava in 1876 in Maribor. Even now we count this terraced vineyard above the river Elbe as the crown jewel of our winery. The Pinot Noir form Trojslava is aged in oak barrels.
