Finding the treasure is in conflict with the Christian tradition, which prohibits farmers to move soil from the date of the crucifixion of Christ in the Resurrection. The exposure time Habana in Rakvice (left for Christmas in 1622) to maintain the inventory hotařských duties from 1606 (when bočkajovských raids destroyed all the documents and had to write again): among other things in them hitting zapovídalo grazing cattle and pass time board games. In 1701 a new village was built over the wine, preserved inscription on the ceiling beams of the former mill village in Upper Street shows the construction of today's archival vault Reva Rakvice company in 1841. In the 19th century Rakvice worked at the famous revivalist and economic reformer Eduard Kornyšla. The native of nearby Solitude Trkmanský court was theater (friends with JK Tyl), Miller, the mayor and deputy of the Reichstag and the plaque of 1948 is marked as "peasant spokesman proud people." In his cellar, which had already been adapted for seating and accommodation, Moravia met the intellectual elite: Joseph Wurm, Jan Herben, Francis Bezdek. In terms of winemaking, however, is problematic Kornyšl figure, since unlike grapevine promoted diabetes, "Hungarian wine, should be our špatnější begins to choke prices now - and on what will then stand growing wine that most work load and needs?" The period ratios indicates Kornyšlovy estate inventory: includes a hundred buckets of wine and 22 oak barrels, which accounted for nearly one-seventh of its assets. From today's perspective, the interesting fact that two thirds of fluid from his estate consisted of red wine. A pioneer of modern wine was a teacher Anton Kubicek, which also promoted the now forgotten habit bet Vine across the slopes to be solidified. For more recent rakvického winery is worth mentioning particularly failed in 1960 when it was damp and advised Oidium, so we find in the chronicle of a sigh: "A little wine in the cellars and little money for them." On the night of 2 to 3 July 1968 a tornado hit the village of Olga, the cellars were washed and dirt from blocking the road to the vineyards Přítluky. At the same time, however Sixties extensive planting time in a place called New Mountain. Next year, the winemakers who do not like to remember, came with the year 1985, which damaged the vines long arctic frosts.

On Shrove Tuesday the soldiers drank four battalions extending encourage him to Hungary 7 hectoliters of wine in the price of 15 guilders. For local cellars is a typical soft ocher or beige facade, which is nice to see the ancient story of mill No. 63 Cooperative Street. Notable is the neighboring building, which stands on its own island, from one side to descend into the cellar, on the opposite side are poured at cellar door on the mill floor. In the Meadow Street is a row of cellars from the 19th century, most of them have modern stone facade inspired by similar buildings in Hare or Vrbice.
