About the company LAHOFER
THE COMPANY VINAŘSTVÍ LAHOFER, A.S. WAS FIRST ESTABLISHED IN ZNOJMO IN 2003 AS PRVNÍ ZNOJEMSKÁ VINAŘSKÁ. UNDER THIS NAME IT INTRODUCED TO THE MARKET THREE VINTAGES WITH SPECIAL ATTRIBUTES FROM 2003–2005. THE YEAR 2006 MARKED A TURNING POINT THANKS TO COMPLETION OF THE NEW PRODUCTION AREA IN DOBŠICE NEAR ZNOJMO. ALONGSIDE THE CHANGE IN PREMISES CAME A CHANGE IN THE NAME AND THE BRAND: FROM 2006 THE LAHOFER WINERY WAS UP AND RUNNING.
In 2008 the company began to renovate and reconstruct a medieval townhouse in the centre of the old quarter of Znojmo, on the street Veselá, and a year later the Hotel LAHOFER opened its doors to the public.
Following the purchase of new vineyards in 2012, the LAHOFER Winery became one of the biggest vine growers in the Czech Republic. LAHOFER today looks after the Rajská vineyard on the historic terraces below St. Nicholas’ Church in Znojmo. The capacity of the winery is fixed at a maximum annual production of 800 thousand bottles of wine, produced largely from grapes grown on our own vineyards.
In 2014, LAHOFER Winery bought into the HANZEL Winery in Miroslav. Since then, the offer of products has included not only wine from the LAHOFER Winery and accommodation, wine-tasting and other experiences at the Hotel LAHOFER, but also the HANZEL brand (HANZEL Winery and Hotel HANZEL). Thus an ensemble of companies has arisen, referred to collectively as the LAHOFER Group.
