Ing. Anna Havlickova: Your Guide, Co-founder
I have traveled and worked in the hospitality industry all over the world. As a sommelier, winemaker and tourism expert I have firsthand experience working with international tourists.
I have a lifelong passion for wine. While completing my master’s degree in Tourism, I took various sommelier courses and I became a certified sommelier through the Czech Sommelier Association in Prague.
My love for wine brought me to Mikulov, the wine capital of Southern Moravia. It was here that I became a partner and head winemaker in a winery in 2013.
As an owner-operator, I worked in every aspect of wine-making, from tending the vines to heavy lifting as cellar hand. I also tested samples in the laboratory and worked on the bottling line. In addition to running the tasting room, I was responsible for booking and running wine tours and helping customers choose wine to buy for their own cellars.
I continue to make wine at my old winery where I refine my skills in the art of making wine along with the experience of all the joys that come with it.
I traveled and lived for years in different parts of the globe including the USA, New Zealand, Australia, Africa, Asia and Europe. I visited many wine regions as part of my research and spent three years on Long Island, New York. Here I lived and worked in the heart of Long Island wine regions, the North Fork of Long Island and the Hamptons. This life-changing experience along with its amazing people inspired my to pursue a life in the wine industry. I will always remain connected to Long Island as it paved the way to where I am today – at home in Moravia; one of the most stunning wine regions in the world.
I love being able to do what I do best and that’s taking care of guests, sharing my knowledge, trading stories, having some laughs and learning something new with people just like you.
Maxim Roll: Operations Manager, Co-founder
I fell in love with wine through travel. On my journeys I have been lucky enough to explore wine regions across Australia and New Zealand. My time there gained me the knowledge of local vineyards, and experienced some of the finest wines in the world. In Cairns, Australia, I worked and trained in several areas of food and beverage, as well as event planning, wine tastings and training for restaurants and hotels.
I wouldn’t say I’m a wine buff, but I very much enjoy a glass of wine or two.
And after meeting Anna, wine became my everyday world. I earned my sommelier certification through Valtice Wine Academy and I keep studying and learning something new every day.
When I’m not working you can catch me cooking and matching my creations with local varietals, conquering the white waters with a kayak or working on my newest painting.
Even though I was born in Hradec Kralove, Czech Republic, I have been visiting South Moravia since my childhood and I always knew I wanted to call this wine country my home. My favorite place became Mikulov. This beautiful wine town is surrounded by white, chalky hills and adorned with an amazing hilltop Renaissance chateau, visible for kilometres around. No wonder South Moravia is often compared to Tuscany.
I’m very excited about the fresh and unique approach we bring to delivering wine adventures with good vibes and a personal touch.
