The village of Šatov is situated not so far from the Austrian border. It was founded in around 1200 and granted town status by King Vladislav II in 1497. Šatov is famous for its vineyards. Šatov’s landmark is a late Gothic church with Baroque alterrations consecrated to St. Martin.
The Winery Znovín Znojmo is a staunch supporter of the wine tours. It is often said that once the customer know what the particular vineyard looks like and knows the background, where the wine comes from, he/she has a different and much warmer relationship to the wine itself.
