Word from the owner
Southern slopes of Krndija, exposed to sunlight as they largely envelop Požega Valley on the northeast, contain far-famous Kutjevo winegrowing area exceptionally appreciated for quality of wines produced there. Vlado Krauthaker, BE Agronomy and oenologist, owner of Krauthaker Vineyards and Winery, contributes to rich winegrowing and winemaking tradition of Kutjevo region. At the time of its founding, the winery owned 1 hectare of vineyards, however by 2010, the winery became owner of 32 hectares of vineyards. The winery operates additional 68 hectares of third party owned vineyards.
A particular attention is paid to indigenous Welschriesling variety – Graševina, which is frequently awarded gold medals at fairs and wine exhibitions. We would like to emphasize environmentally friendly winegrowing and constant quality as a major principle of our production. As particular climate and suitability of the Welschriesling varieties are fully employed, Krauthaker winery frequently produces predicate wines – spätlese and auslese wines as well as dried berries auslese wines.
Apart from the exceptional Graševina (Welschriesling) we also nurture superior wines of other grape varieties: Sauvignon, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Zelenac, Merlot and Pinot Noir, which have all met good response at wine competitions. Quality and success of our wines is best described by numerous medals received at globally renowned wine competitions and tastings. We would like to single out the golden medals awarded to Graševina in Bordeaux, London and Burgundy as the favourite ones.
