If you are in the Czech Republic and you happen to like to drink wines from the wine cellars of the Prince of Liechtenstein, Alcohol.cz is the place for you. The website has started to sell wines of the Hofkellerei des Fürsten von Liechtenstein, which is run by the Prince of Liechtentein Foundation. Princess Marie was on hand to mark the occasion at an event in Prague. The wife of Prince Constantin has been involved in promoting Liechtenstein wines for a few years now.
The princely family owns two vineyards. Their 40 hectare Austrian vineyard has been owned by the family for more than 600 years and produces Gruner Veltliner, Zweigelt, Merlot, Riesling and Traminer. Their Liechtenstein vineyard produces only Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Even though their tiny 4 hectare Liechtenstein vineyard only produces 10,000 bottles a year it may be one of the most expensive vineyards in the world. Property within the principality averages 8,200 Euro (10,463 USD) per square meter! That means that the 4 hectare vineyard is worth a staggering 82,800,000 Euro (105,654,488 USD) - or so we wrote almost two years ago.
