THE NAME OF DOBŠICE, VIRTUALLY INTERTWINED WITH THE TOWN OF ZNOJMO, IS PROBABLY DERIVED FROM THE PERSONAL NAME DOBEŠ. LATER, HOWEVER, OTHER NAMES WERE ALSO USED FOR THE VILLAGE, INCLUDING: STOŠÍKOVIČKYAND TESSWITZ - IN VARIOUS FORMS. THE ORIGINAL NAME WAS RETURNED TO THE VILLAGE AFTER THE FOUNDATION OF THE CZECHOSLOVAK REPUBLIC.  THE FIRST WRITTEN RECORD ABOUT THE VILLAGE DATES FROM 1190, WHEN PRINCE OTA (KONRAD III OF ZNOJMO) FOUNDED THE LOUKA MONASTERY, DONATING TO IT, INTER ALIA, THE VILLAGES OF DOBŠICE (WRITTEN AS DOBSICI), POPOVICE AND OBLEKOVICE. THE DOBŠICE YARD ALWAYS BELONGED TO BOHEMIAN KINGS, UNTIL 1287 WHEN KING VÁCLAV II DONATED DOBŠICE TO ST. MICHAEL CHURCH IN ZNOJMO.  

Wars represent the least pleasant exposure to history. In the course of one of the battles of Znojmo between Austrian and French armies in 1809 nearly all of Dobšice burned down.  The mass graves from that period today provide eternal rest to soldiers of many different nationalities including local civilians.  In memory of the fallen soldiers, several monuments and memorials were built in and around Dobšice. The village has always been one of the major wine villages of the region. The former wine-producing glory is preserved by three wine cellar lanes and lots of individual wine cellars in the village houses. 

U HÁJKU VINEYARD ESTATE



Fifteen million years ago a huge, one kilometre long meteorite fell on the territory of present Germany. Drops of its molten rock also fell on the Bohemian lands.  The subsequently formed green gems called Vltavins, also called "waterman’s tears" or "petrified frogs", constitute a small fraction of the substrate of the U Hájku vineyard.  And when treasure seekers look for them here today, they sometimes also find fragments of slightly more recent history. 

This locality, once bombarded by bits of meteorite, later witnessed in 1809 a huge battle between the famous French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte and the Austrian Emperor Franz I. 

The frequently scarred U Hájku Estate has a much more pleasant purpose today. It produces of one of the best grapes of the Müller Thurgau variety for LAHOFER winemakers.
