More detail about the object:

The chateau also hosts the National Wine Centre, o.p.s., which runs the Wine Salon of the Czech Republic inside the castle cellars. This salon is in fact the country’s most prestigious wine competition, and sits at the pinnacle of many nominating wine exhibitions. Following their success in competition to be numbered in the top 100 Czech wines, these winners then form the basis for a permanent public wine degustation. Thus the general public, including foreign visitors, get the opportunity to taste the very best Czech wines. Wines stored in the cellars can then be bought. Part of the cellars is also set aside as an exhibition devoted to Czech wine-making and our wine-making regions, where you can also purchase a glass for your wine-tasting as well sommelier’s supplies, etc.
