The first evidence of wine growing in the area appears when Wettin Margrave Wilhelm I acquired the village of Kotchenbroda in 1401 with all its’ fields, meadows and vineyards.
Today, after a rich historical past the winery manages around 8.5 hectares of vineyards, many in the traditional steep slope wine growing on the hills around Radebeul.
The Saxony wine museum bears witness to the rich heritage and history of viticulture and the work of the winemakers of past centuries and their equipment. The displayed items in the museum are fascinating and include maps, models and works of art that illustrate the peculiarities of viticulture in the Elbe valley.
The Saxony wine museum is a must see experience. There are guided tours through the historic vineyards, a visit to the mountain house and a look at the special exhibition followed by….what else, a delightful glass of Hoflossnitz wine.
The best thing of all? The Hoflossnitz winery is just a 10-minute walk from the Radisson Blu Park Hotel & Conference Centre, Dresden Radebeul!
