Hotel Willa Odkrywców


Looking at the wine map of Poland, the wealth of vineyards is so great that it really takes many weeks to be able to see them all.... and even more time to be able to taste their products. However, the place which in a way facilitates such trips is the Willa Odkrywców Hotel in Szklarska Poręba, which tries to unite and consolidate the entire wine world.

The Willa Odkrywców Hotel is a perfect place to start a wine adventure, as well as being a great place to end it.

The wine-growing region of Lower Silesia is extremely diverse and rich. Here we can find vineyards located quite low above sea level, where the climate is relatively mild for our country, but there are also vineyards located in extremely picturesque foothills, such as the Agat vineyard from Sokołowiec in the Kaczawskie Mountains.

The name of the vineyards determines their location - they are
in the beautiful landscape range of the Trzebnickie Hills.
It is a wine project that combines two crops: the Jaksonowice Vineyard and the Węgrów Vineyard. Both vineyards are located on a southwestern slope and a loess substrate, which gives excellent growing conditions. The owners successfully grow vitis vinifera, varieties such as Chardonnay, Riesling and Pinot Gris. The current crops cover an area of ​​3.5 hectares. The nature and quality of wines is built consistently.
They are an excellent example of the fact that with a well-chosen location and a skilful approach, you can obtain satisfactory results from grapevine cultivation.

The vineyard founded in 2002 by Artur Pajdosz. Since 2013,
​​​​​​​the vineyard has been run by his son - Michał Pajdosz.
The cultivation is located in the central part of the Dałkowskie Hills (approx. 200 m above sea level, south-west exposure), currently it covers approx. 5 ha. An expansion is planned over the next few years. It is grown: rondo, regent, dornfelder, traminer, sibera, hibernal, solaris and others in smaller numbers. Wines from the Jakubów Vineyard are of a good standard, they have managed to gain recognition in various competitions and official tastings. The wines are officially on sale since 2014.

Kindler Vineyard is a relatively young place on the wine map of Lower Silesia. The vineyard is small and the grapevine bushes cover the basalt soil in the vicinity of the medieval fortress (Grodziec Castle) and the extinct volcanoes of the Kaczawskie Foothills. The wines obtained from it provide joy, harmony, beauty and sensuality, and at the same time heat, passion
and effort in striving for perfection.
Currently, the following grapevines are grown in the Kinlder Vineyard: solaris, pinot noir and riesling.


The wine adventure began in 2014. The first vines were planted on the hill called "Fifteenth" in Krośnice. The vineyard was named "Anna" - in honor of her daughter, the youngest in the family.
It is a small family enterprise - therefore the hosts can cultivate any plant, control the quality of the fruit growing on it, and put their heart into production. The carefully selected grapes are picked by hand, carefully placed in boxes, all in order to deliver undamaged fruit to the winery, which significantly affects the taste and quality of the wine.
The Anna vineyard produces wines from five grape varieties: Cabernet Cortis, Rondo, Regent, Solaris and Johanniter.

Moderna Vineyard was established in 2015 in the Trzebnickie Hills, in Krakowiany (20 km north of Wrocław), in a region with
a centuries-old tradition of viticulture, characterized by the longest growing season in Poland. The vineyard is situated at
an altitude of 183 to 200 m above sea level, south and south-west exposure. The substrate is loess soil. The following varieties
​​​​​​​of white grapes are cultivated: johanniter, riesling, chardonnay, muscaris and red ones: rondo and cabernet cortis. The total planted acreage is 10,258 plants, on an area of ​​2.4 ha.

The vineyard was established in 2004 on an area of ​​40 ares in the town of Makowice (Świdnica commune). In the first years of operation, the area was planted with various varieties.
However, as experience gained, new grape varieties, imported especially for this habitat, appeared on subsequent plots. Today the vineyard covers an area of ​​3.65 ha, on four plots of land with completely different soil properties.
The name of the vineyard refers to the close vicinity of the city
​​​​​​​of Świdnica. On the eastern side, the Ślęża Massif towers over the plain, on the southern side Góra Sowie with Wielka Sowa in the foreground, and on the west Góra Wałbrzyskie. The vineyard located at an altitude of 255 m above sea level gives the impression that it towered over the entire area.

It is located in the small town of Miękinia (about 26 km from Wrocław). Established in 2001 by Ewa and Lech Jaworek, it is one of the first and largest vineyards in Poland that cultivate noble grapevine vitis vinifera. The first grapes were harvested in 2003, thus creating a debut vintage consisting of such wines as: riesling, pinot noir, pinot gris, elbling. In 2006, Jaworek wines were included by the Ministry of Agriculture on the list of Traditional Products. Since 2015, the Gault & Millau Polska Yellow Guide has recommended Jaworek's products on the list of 160 creators of the best regional products in Poland. The vineyard also belongs to the Lower Silesian Culinary Trail - Tastes of Lower Silesia, promoting traditional products and cuisine
​​​​​​​of our region.

The Agat vineyard owes its name to the numerous agatics found in the area. The first plantings began in 2007, gradually enlarging the vineyard to 1.5 ha. As in many other vineyards in Poland, many different grape varieties were planted for trial, assessing their suitability in our area.
The best ones were: the white ones - riesling, johanniter, solaris and pinot gris, and the red ones - rondo, regent, cabernet cortis. The vineyard is situated at an altitude of 320-330 m above sea level, on the slope of a volcano that has died out about 300 million years ago. Additionally, the south-west exhibition provides excellent exposure. The oldest bushes are the roundabout and the regent. The first wines appreciated by our guests during the tasting were obtained from these grapes.

is planned in the nearby Dalkowskie Hills.

​​​​​​​to the multi-generational tradition of producing natural bee honey.
