Hustopece Town

Wine growing culture that has a very long tradition here is the armorial sign of the town. Hustopece could proudly call itself the biggest wine growing community in Moravia during 18th century. The vineyards covered more than 50% of farming land at that time.
Unfortunately mildew diseases attacked local vineyards at the end of 19th century so heavily that nearly all vineyards were destroyed.
The vineyard reconstruction took place after the Ist and IInd World War. Hustopece wine growing has revived again and it has become very important for Morava region. It is currently very important for majority of Hustopece inhabitants.
The town is also connected with the figure of our first president T. G. Masaryk. His mother came from this area, he studied here and his brother Ludvik was the owner of printing works situated just few steps from the hotel. Local cemetery is a place of the last rest of the president’s parents.

We can find the first mention of Hustopece in documents from the 13th century, when the place was in possession of Vilem from Hustopece. The town belonged to the Kralove monastery at Stare Brno during the period from 14th to 16th century. Year 1572 was an important milestone for Hustopece, because the settlement received the status of a town.
