Wine, Beer and More Beer

Three events for summer

We've got three events coming up over the next month:

New Zealand Wine Tasting

27 July

Parco Mollo Wines, who very generously supported us with their fantastic wines at our charity ball are organising a wine tasting next week.  All CANZA Members are cordially invited to this event which will take place at Art & Event Gallery Černá Labuť, Level 8, Na Poříčí 25, Praha 1 on 27 July from 18.00

They are highlighting wines from the Saint Clair Family Estate, Marlborough, New Zealand. These wines are made by renowned winemaker Mat Thompson, and include the World's No.1 - White Wine as judged by the International Challenge London 2012/2013. 

Come and taste some of New Zealand's very best Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The tasting includes 12 top Saint Clair wines and concludes with a "sweet ending" with 10 year old Tawny port from Grant Burge, Barossa Valley, Australia 

Catering is by Prague Catering and the venue offers offers wonderful views of Prague. 

The event costs 590,- kc per person and reservations are essential as there are a limited number of places available. To reserve please email smartbuyingwine@gmail.com or call Karina Uhlikova tel. 725 266 853.

Summer Beer Garden 2

30 July at 18.00

This time we will be meeting up in Riegrovy sady- zahrádky (Park-café). I am sure most of you already know it, so no excuse for not showing up.  It's free and the beer is cheap. As an added incentive, the beer garden has Aussie pies from The Pie Shop.

If you have never been to a CANZA event before, it's a great opportunity to meet other Aussies and Kiwis. For Czechs and other foreigners it's also an opportunity to relive your Australian memories. Everyone is welcome (we won't be checking passports =)

Let us know if you are coming so we block off enough tables.  For more information, and to indicate your attendance, please visit the Facebook events page


Summer Beer Garden (and Barbeque) 3 

Zemský akciový pivovar - 20 August

This is more of a 'save the date' - we will be sending out more information later.

We'll be having our August meet-up at the Australian-owned Czech brewerey, Zemský akciový pivovar.  It's in Prague, has fantasic beers that are well priced and they have kindly offfered to put on a barbeque for us.  All you have to do is bring your own meat.  Watch Facebook for more details.



Partnership with Czech Cricket

cz_team_in_Vienna_2013_resized.jpgCANZA is delighted to announce that it has formed a partnership with Czech Cricket (Českomoravský Kriketový Svaz). Cricket as a sport and outdoor activity is very popular in both Australia and New Zealand with the national men's and women's teams of both countries performing at the pinnacle of the international game. Through the partnership we will be working on two fronts:

1) to help inform Czech-based Aussies and Kiwis that their time in the Czech Republic does not have to be without cricket, with regular senior and junior tournaments being played

2) to help introduce local Czech people to the Australian and New Zealand pastime and our beloved sport, cricket.

CMKS_logo_bigger.pngCzech Cricket has been steadily expanding since its formation in Prague in 2000. Czech Cricket coordinates and support local international and Czech State schools towards participation in the Czech Cricket Winter, Spring and Summer tournaments, which have been showing fantastic growth since their introduction in 2012. The expansion of these tournaments alongside the introduction of an additional team in the men’s game and a major facilities development overhaul project mean that 2014 is set to be a fantastic year for cricket in the Czech Republic.

If you or any of your friends, colleagues or relatives are interested in learning more about cricket, please contact info@CzechCricket.cz or for upcoming events, please keep an eye on the Czech Cricket website here www.czechcricket.cz/.
