Wine tasting in Pavlov, Mikulov, Lednice, Valtice

We are going to stay in either Mikulov or Lednice for an upcoming weekend in July specifically to learn about and try Moravian wines. Is it fairly easy to visit different wine cellars and winemakers without appointments? In other wine regions we have hired local wine guides that provide a lot of history of the region as well as access to winemakers that we otherwise might not have had.

1) Does anyone have any recommendations of wine guides for this region? Or any leads on how to find some? I've been searching, but as of yet have not found anyone.

2) If not, should we focus on any particular town or winemakers to sample and become more familiar with the wines of Moravia? (I know of the wine salon in Valtice, which we will definitely pay a visit, but there is something very wonderful about meeting the winemakers themselves and learning of their process and this is what we are looking to do.)

3) Should we stay in Mikulov or Lednice?

Thank you so much for your help.

lots of info here..calendar of wine events..other webpages/references are included

http://www.wineofczechrepublic.cz/en/

for ex. the next several weekends there are organized bus excursions on Saturdays in some areas.

at the least, chose a date on the calendar .....you may have to utilize Google translate from Czech to English to get a description of the actual event.

Depending on your stay and amout of time, you could also visit Znojmo

more insight here as well

If anyone is looking for a local guide in South Moravia - especially for wine tasting tours - Taste of Czech do customized private guided tours and as they are all locals, they have the access to all the micro wine makers and larger cellars too.

The website is http://tasteofczech.co.uk/ hope this helps :)
