Mineral water with special attributes
Similar to wines with special attributes which reflect the terroir's specificities, Korunní mineral water's distinctive taste is formed by the unique bedrock of the Doupov Mountains.
Wines with special attributes must come from a particular vineyard, just as Korunní mineral water comes from a particular location listed in the Official Journal of the EU and supervised by the Czech Spa and Spring Inspectorate (of the Ministry of Health).
And just as no sugar can be added to wines with special attributes, Korunní mineral water doesn't undergo any chemical treatment.
Mineral water fitting to be paired with wine
Water to be paired with wine should be tasty and refreshing without unpleasant aromas. The Wine Institute together with the Czech Sommelier Association and hydrogeochemistry experts independently assess the taste characteristics and composition of spring and mineral waters. The waters that pass the certification process obtain the ‘Water fitting to be paired with wine’ label.
