University Vineyard "On Manor Brook"
Telefon: +48 14 612 78 12
The area where the Jagiellonian University vineyard is located used to belong to the Benedictine nuns from Staniątki, who were settled there in the 13th century and whose activities included running a distillery. After the Second World War, the land was nationalized, and in 1970 it was made over to the Jagiellonian University in an exchange.
The vineyard has been named Nad Dworskim Potokiem (On Manor Brook). Useful meteorological data can be obtained from the two weather stations located in the area. The first vines were planted in April 2005. These have been white varietals, such as aurora, bianca, seyval blanc, sibera, serena, jutrzenka, muscat ottonel as well as red varietals: maréchal foch and léon millot. The choice has been determined by the weather conditions: the not too sunny Polish autumn results in red grapes having little time to ripen.
