In Moravia, the patron is worshiped by Pope Saint Urban, who is pictured with grapes of wine. Legend has it, that he hid from the persecutors in the vineyard and thus saved his life. St. Urban, who was the Pope of Rome, became the patron saint of winemakers, wine and vineyards. He was born in the second century. According to one of the legends, allegedly converted Valerian, the groom of Cecilia, to Christianity and baptized him. He died in 230. His tomb was found on the Via Apia in Rome during excavations in 1854.
It is difficult to find a statue or portrait of St. Urban in the Czech and Moravian wine-growing areas he should be the closest to winemakers of all saints - St. Urban. In the end, you can even discover it in three versions (folk sculpture of St. Urban as Pope and beautiful wood carving on the front of the barrel) at a place recommended to us by local Mikulov winemakers. After all, where else we should discover St. Urbana than in Urbánek family guesthouses by U sv. Urbana…
For those who St. Urban has not yet had the opportunity to "enlighten", we offer a short performance. There is not so much more in the church books either. St. Urban lives like a pope from the 3rd century. Depicted with a tiara on his head and its attributes, it is a grape, a vine or a barrel of wine. According to some experts, the reason for the connection of the saint with wine is only the fact that his holiday 25.5. was in the Middle Ages the first holiday of the saint after the so-called ice men, ie already in the warm period, when the vine is planted on a flower. Sometimes it is an attribute of St. Urban-pope and a sword commemorating his martyrdom (Víno Revue magazine 2/2002).
