About the Author

Hi. I’m Juliana Dever and according to science I have some sort of "exploration" gene. Embracing this compulsion, I spend a lot of time hurtling around the planet in metal tubes experiencing other cultures and writing humorous essays about it. Enjoy.

    Gorgeous photos, and I loved learning about a wine region I knew very little about! Cheers!

    • Thanks Teresa. I really was just so fascinated by Moravia. The winemakers are quite friendly, but it does take a little bit more effort to plan a trip there. I included all that we did in my sleep/see/do at the bottom box in case you (or anyone else) wants to plan a trip there.

  2. Very interesting! Who knew? Amazing photos and the both you and your husband are Amazing people.

    • I thought it was so interesting as well, Katriana. Thanks for reading!

    Wow, kudos for managing all those Czech names with “´” and “ˇ” included, almost nobody makes the effort to write them in an English text. The only typo I was able to find is that the name of the local grape isn’t “Rudlanské Modré”, but “Rulandské modré”. Otherwise, you did perfectly! I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay in Moravia and liked local wines 🙂

    • Thanks Lucie. I updated the spelling on the grape. I really had a wonderful time in Moravia, everyone is so lovely there, especially the Nepraš family. I’m glad you enjoyed the story. <3

    I’ve never thought about this place for wine, so it’s good to know. Plus, with that kind of nature, my son would love to play outside.
