Vinobraní season is upon us
Prague has wine festivals throughout September
The festivals all feature a number of vendors selling bottled wine and usually wine sold in bulk from taps. You can also get burčák, or young wine, which is grape juice that is just starting to ferment. While the alcohol content is just about 4 percent, similar to beer, it is quite deceptive. It tastes like juice, so it is easy to drink a lot of it. And because the fermentation process isn't complete it comes with a mean hangover from the natural chemicals related to alcohol production.
Popular festivals are Vinobraní na Grébovce, which takes place at náměstí Míru and Havlíčkovy sady, which has a large urban vineyard. Prague Castle and Troja, which both also have vineyards, draw a lot of people but tend to be a bit touristy. Vinohradské vinobraní at náměstí Jiřího z Poděbrad draws a lot of local people and has some bands to listen to.
For people who want a day trip out of town, Karlštejn Castle has a big festival with a lot of side events on the program. The town is easily reached by train, so you don't need to drive.
