Czech Republic = Beer. That's a no brainer any tourist coming for a visit will already know. However, the country also produces a lot of wine, although this fact isn't well-known outside our borders. For wine lovers, there are a number of great wine bars in Prague, serving not only the best Czech vintages, but bottle from around the world.
Look for the words "Vinarni" on your wanderings through Prague, if you are an adventurous wine drinker. Around the Old Town, Bandol is a fabulous choice for French wines. Italian wine lovers should head to Divinis, which also offers tasty morsels from our southern neighbor. Drifting closer to Wenceslas Square, you can stop in Monarch for a wine and cheese break, or head over to the lovely Bresto with its long list of European vintages. If you are near Prague 2, Wine Biss is a designer spot with many Austrian wines. Cellarius does weekly wine tastings and offers many Czech choices.
Mala Strana seems to be wine bar central. The Wine Bar is an upscale spot with an extensive red wine list (but whites are on offer too). For a secret spot, head downstairs to Vinoteka Ujezd; laidback and local, it shares its space with a music club, so the atmosphere is a little different. Nearby is Zlaty had, which is listed in the local Grand restaurant guide as one of the top 100 restaurants. And finally for a true experience and some knowledgeable wine talk, stop in at Vinograf, which is also your best bet for Czech wine education.
