The vineyard house is a Baroque building and one of the very few preserved vineyard houses. One part was built in the 18th century, and the western part was built in the first half of the 19th century. In 1840, it belonged to the Brothers of Mercy and the Order of the Sisters of St. Elizabeth in Prague. It is a brick, single storey building with rectangular ground plan and very strong walls accompanied by a range of reinforcing masonry. It is a single-section building. The rooms have beamed ceilings and are illuminated by rather small windows in deep segmental relieving arches. In the western part, the front side is divided by a couple of horizontal rectangular windows. The house has a shingle, collar-beam roof with bolted joints. This adjustment is from the 20th century.
Until 2021, the house serves as a facility for winemakers, but a large part was occupied by a wine shop where we sell local wine. Currently, the wine shop is located in a house in the Ornamental Garden.
At present, the vineyard house and its surroundings are under a long-planned reconstruction so that it can provide its visitors with even better facilities and comfort. The planned completion of the reconstruction is in 2024.
At the beginning of 2022, another important project will be launched - the modernization of the vineyard house. St Claire`s Vineyard House has long lacked the adequate facilities necessary for the operation of the wine bar and its staff, for visitors. The toilets here have long been designed in a temporary way. St Claire`s Vineyard is a frequently visited place, whose attractiveness increased even more after the construction of a new entrance from Trojská street.
Numerous cultural and private events take place at the vineyard itself, but it is limited by the insufficient facilities and technical condition of the building. With regard to the occupancy of the facility, the existing layout and the size of the vineyard house are no longer satisfactory.
The current operation of the wine shop will be moved to the bistro building in the Ornamental Garden (map) during the reconstruction.
The Botanical Garden continues to change and modernize the area based on the general territorial development valid since 2017. However, the main goal of these projects is to modernize the area and especially increase the comfort of our visitors by offering quality facilities and new experiences.
