Moravská Banka Vín (Moravian Wine Bank) is obviously a joke, the wine "bank" is a wine vault of a wine seller. Hlinky is the road at the foot of Žlutý kopec (Yellow Hill), the houses have huge cellars which were built horizontally into the hillside. Today some are used for restaurants or for shops. Using it as a wine shop and wholesale seem a straightforward use of the cellar.

They offer a wide range of wines from Moravia, the Czech Republic and abroad. They also have a so-called wine archive and offer storage for your wines in the cellar at a constant temperature. They deliver to restaurants and companies, offer wine tastings.

They have several shops, two of them are in the city center and are above ground, the wine is stored in climate-controlled rooms. Also in Hlinky ist the Vinný sklep, about 180 m down the road. This cellar is open only after appointment, for wine tastings for groups from 20 to 100 people, business meetings and social events. The cellar seats up to 90 to 100 people, per table between 16 and 45. The tasting starts with a glass of sparkling wine and basic information about winemaking in the Czech Republic and the cellar. This is followed by a tasting of 6 Moravian samples, the choice is entirely up to the sommelier, but each with an explanation. As part of the tasting, a moravské sousto (Moravian bite), typical local snacks, is included. These are cheese, sausages, bran, homemade lard, and pastries. Jugs of water are placed on the tables.
