Wineries

Zielona Góra is one of two places in Poland with wine growing (mainly white wines; there is another wine growing region near the town of Warka in Masovia). The first wineries around Zielona Góra were built in 1314. At Paradyz Abbey near Zielona Góra, monks have been making wine since 1250. The number of wineyards at peak production is estimated at 4,000 in the region, and 2,500 in Zielona Góra itself. The most famous wine is called "Monte Verde". During Communist times, wine production was reduced, but since 1990 it has recovered. However, nowadays wine is no longer produced in Zielona Gora (the last factory was closed in the early 1990s).
