We had an incredible wine tour with Sarah - a fantastic English speaking guide. Her passion for wine and knowledge about the chateaux were evident throughout the tour. Sarah is very knowledgeable, passionate and enthusiastic, and her explanations about the wine-making process and the history of the chateau were very interesting. The wine tastings were also great! Our 3 kids (aged 7, 9 and 11) loved the tour too! I highly recommend this tour! *** Only issue is that google maps gave us very wrong directions and it was not easy to find the right entrance

Their cellar network was astounding. So much history behind this property. Not forgetting the lovely view of the vineyards from their courtyard. Sarah was a great host at the tasting.

What a great experience me and my partner had. Our guide Sarah explained the tour in such detail, that girl needs to be given a promotion. She has big passion and love for the work she does. I learned so much about the history and the wine.I highly recommend ??

We made a visit to the winery, with our guide Sarah! There is no way to explain how interesting the tour was mainly because the cellars ooze a lot of history plus the way Sarah Marcou explained it was amazing! Also when we made conversation with Sarah she told us that it was her second month in the job! I thought that with her enthusiasm she was part of the company for a very long time! Thank you Sarah for an amazing experience and may you have a lot of clients because you surely deserve it!

Trencín Castle

Trenčín Castle is relatively large renovated castle, towering on a steep limestone cliff directly above the city of Trenčín. It is a dominant feature not only of Trenčín, but also of the entire Považie region. The castle is a national monument.

History of the castle cliff dates back to the Roman Empire, what is proved by the inscription on the castle cliff proclaiming the victory of Roman legion against Germans in the year 179.

Today’s castle was probably built on the hill-fort. The first proven building on the hill was the Great Moravian rotunda from the 9th century and later there was a stone residential tower, which served to protect the Kingdom of Hungary and the western border. In the late 13th century the castle became a property of Palatine Matúš Csák, who became Mr. of Váh and Tatras.

Matúš Csák of Trenčín built a tower, still known as Matthew’s, which is a dominant determinant of the whole building.
