Burčák Festivals in Prague: Here’s the Full List!

“Burčák” is partially fermented young wine and it is a very popular drink in Moravia, Austria, and Bavaria. This alcoholic wine drink is produced when pressed grape juice is partially fermented. Its consumption is typically connected with the first autumn days.

The law states that to be labeled a burčák, the product has to be made of Czech or Moravian fruits and can only be sold between August 1 and November 30 of the year.

The drink is considered to be a national treasure. Moravians are very passionate about the drink and claim that drinking seven liters per year guarantees good health in the upcoming year!
