Castles and Wine: Moravia, Czech Republic
Ninety-four percent of the Czech Republic’s burgeoning wine production (Grüner Veltliner and Cabernet Moravia) comes from this under-the-radar province’s rolling vineyards and castle-topped towns. Stay at the new nautical-themed Noem Arch Hotel, with 18 cabin-like rooms and a blue-walled restaurant that blends harmoniously with the glass aquariums. Head south to the village of Mikulov for an affordable tasting at Templ Wine Bar (drinks for two $4). Doubles from $141.
