Turbovice is named after the Knights of Turba. The name "Mečířská" means "Swordmakers Vineyard". Mečířská was the dowry of Countess Ludmila Czernin in 1753 and soon after her husband Prince August Josef Lobkowicz bought the Estate of Turbovice located nearby. It is still today a picturesque small valley at the south border of Mělník with its tower of the Knights of Turba. Muscat is harvested on upper part of the vineyard for young fresh wines, Saint Laurent and Pinot Noir ripe below and selected parts from these varieties are aged in oak barriques.
