Hroznová Lhota is a village and municipality in South Moravian Region of the Czech Republic. It is located at northern foothill of the White Carpathians (Bílé Karpaty) mountain range, about 5 km southeast of Veselí nad Moravou and 22 km east-northeast of Hodonín. A protected landscape area (CHKO Bílé Karpaty) extends from the south just into centre of the village. The population as of 2007 was 1240.

The village has a long vine-growing tradition, hence the name meaning Lhota of grapes“ which has been in use since late 16th century. Prior it the village was named just Lhota or Veselská Lhota (Lhota of Veselí)

Hroznová Lhota was the home of Joža Uprka, famous Czech artist (a painter whose subjects were mostly local people and their lives).
