Following strictly his winemaking strategy without any compromise, Ivo Enjingi, became the first Croatian private wine producer. Also, the first to bring the Gold Decanter to Croatia. The only one that makes all his wine 100% organic for strong 35 years. The winemaker that many wine professionals locally and internationally admire and look up too.
Enjingi today owns 60 hectares of prime grape growing land in the Kutjevo appellation. Vineyards, with an average age of 15 years, are planted on the southern slopes of the mount Krndija, on diverse soils, from sandy loams to extremely rocky soils, which give great complexity and fine minerality to the wines. Some of the vineyards are more than 35 years old and carefully managed for the exceptional quality that old vines give. Younger vineyards are densely planted, up to 8500 vines per hectare, with every vine yielding less than one kilo of grapes, which in turn gives small berries with high sugars and concentrated flavours. In order to make the wines to be the true expression of the land, climate and tradition, and foremost the source of pleasure and health to its consumers, all of the grapes and wines are organically produced.
Favourable climate, natural richness of the soil and rational and dedicated vineyard management enables Enjingi to produce healthy grapes using only organic fertilisers and for the disease control sulphur and copper in minimum quantities.
