AS A SMALL VILLAGE CONNECTED FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES TO NEARBY PROSIMĚŘICE, KYJOVICE WAS PRACTICALLY CONDEMNED. HOWEVER, AFTER THE VELVET REVOLUTION, THE VILLAGE BECAME AN INDEPENDENT MUNICIPALITY IN 1990, AND NOW THE LOCAL RESIDENTS WOULD NOT GIVE UP THEIR LITTLE VILLAGE TO ANYBODY TO DESTROY IT.  

Kyjovice is dominated by St. Bartholomew’s Church, but the major protected monuments include the statue of St. John of Nepomuk and the chapel with a wooden statue of Jesus.  There is also an archaeological site in the cadastral area of the village, documenting local settlement from the Bronze Age to the Slavonic Period.  The first written mention of Kyjovice dates back to 1275. The name is derived from the personal surname Kyj (meaning “club”). In 14th century, the village was owned by the Kyj family of Kyjovice, who had a fortress built here. No remnants of the fortress have survived, though.

ŠPIČÁK VINEYARD ESTATE



The right riverbank of the Jevišovka River in the Znojmo region has become a site where numerous finds of prehistoric animals and other valuable archaeological objects have been discovered. Winemakers, however, have a greater appreciation for the vineyard estate called Špičák u Kyjovic, rising over calcareous loess and gravel sand terraces above the Jevišovka river, where excellent vines are grown.  The outstanding varieties include Pálava, admired by wine tasters and experts at international wine exhibitions.  The Pálava variety from the Špičák Vineyard produced by LAHOFER winemakers has received the highest awards at major international wine exhibitions such as AWC Vienna, San Francisco International Wine Competition, AGROVÍNO Nitra or MUVINA Prešov, as well as at major Czech wine exhibitions such as TOP 77 Czech Wines or King of Czech Wines.  

Several decades ago the winemakers planted Moravian Muscat "on the curtain" of one of the plots on the slope with a prevailing south-eastern orientation.  This is the only place among the more than four hundred hectares of LAHOFER vineyards where this now rare grape variety can be seen.
