From gastronomic point of view, Topoľčianky are well known for wine making. The Chateau Topoľčianky brand represents wine making tradition that was established in 1933. Tradition actually goes back as far as 1723 when Count Keglevich de Busin invited qualified wine makers from Dalmatia, his birthplace, and started to plant first vineyards. First Chateau Topoľčianky branded wine was made in 1933 and in 1947; this brand of wine was for the first time exported to United States of America. In 1993 comes re-birth of winemaking in Topoľčianky when the cellars became a private company. Currently the company manages over 1235 acres of exclusive vineyards in Nitra Wine Region and South Slovak Wine Region. Full bodied and extractive wines are made by controlled fermentation and they perfectly represent the terroir of their origin. Large proportion of red wines is maturing in classic wooden barrels and good quality white wines are waiting in stainless steel tanks. Today, Chateau Topoľčianky perfectly presents revival of winemaking heritage, which reaches as far as the First Czechoslovak Republic and production with over six million bottles per year makes it one of the leaders in wine production in Slovakia. www.chateautopolcianky.sk
