The history of the Bohemia Sekt company in Starý Plzenec near Plzeň, the largest wine growing and making group in Czech Republic, dates back to 1942. The first brands of sparkling wine marketed by the original company were Black Widow and Chateau Radyně. A turning point in the company’s development was engagement of Luis Girardot, a French expert on sparkling wines, towards the end of the 1940s. Since his time, the sparkling wines from Starý Plzenec have been steadily gaining on renown and popularity. The accumulated expertise of several generations of wine makers and the deep cellars of the plant in Starý Plzenec in combination with the latest technology guarantee the superior quality of the Bohemia Sekt brands of sparkling wines that can be found in all leading Czech restaurants. The sparkling wines from Starý Plzenec are served to  mportant visitors at the Prague castle and at special events organised by the Office of the President of Czech Republic. The company also exports its products to 15 countries of the world. The company produces and markets about 350 wine brands. Apart from the sparkling wines, these include the wines from the best wine-growing districts in South Moravia – Mikulov, Velké Bílovice and Bzenec. The wine houses of Vinařství Pavlov, Víno Mikulov, Habánské sklepy, Chateau Bzenec or Chateau Mikulov reflect the various local conditions where the traditional wine-growing techniques are supplemented by the latest results of oenological research.  The products of Bohemia Sekt have won recognition at numerous national and international wine exhibitions and contests.
