Slavonië

Click to read more about Dalmatia as the wine region..

At the northeastern tip of Croatia, against the border of Hungary and Bosnia lies the wine region of Slavonia. A region characterized by endless plains surrounded by the Danube, Drava and Sava rivers. The climate of this wine region is similar to that of the Croatian Highlands, meaning warm summers and cold winters accompanied by plenty of sunshine.

 

The region around Ilok is an exception to this, this is the warmest region in the interior of Croatia. These high temperatures are not ideal for the quality for the wine but fortunately the surrounding mountain range blocks much of the heat so the ratio of sunlight to cool air is just right for the indigenous grape variety Traminac that grows here.

 

In the heart of Slavonia, the vast plains give way to hills and valleys filled with vineyards. In one of these valleys lies Kutjevo, the place where some of the world's best Graševina are produced. With a 23% share of Croatian vineyards, Graševina is by far the most common variety in Croatia.

 

Its refreshing, dry and sometimes full-bodied and powerful wines are immensely popular in Croatia, the majority of which are consumed on the domestic market. Not only in Croatia, but also internationally, Graševina is gaining recognition by winning awards at various wine competitions, among others. The fresh and dry Graševina from the Galić winery is a good example of this.
