Main vineyard occupies an area of 12 hectares in one piece, and smaller plots are located on the surrounding slopes. The vineyard spreads over the entire hill and descends its wide rows all the way to the creek and the pond, which are surrounding it.
On average, the vineyards are 10-20 years old and are planted on the outskirts of the Pozega Valley, right on the hills that were cultivated by the Romans.
The vineyard is incorporated into a natural hilly environment with an all day long exposure to the Sun, and blends with the greenery of the forest on the slopes of the mountain Krndija, which nourishes it with its humidity and breezes, but also preserves it from bad weather and unpredictable storms.
Traditional methods are inclined to an organic approach, without the excessive use of chemicals, which ensures high quality and desirable levels of sugar.
In its function, the hilly environment remained unchanged since Roman times, because on the Kutjevo land the vine is the most abundant and rewarding culture. From September, when the harvest is finished, the vineyard rests, resting until the January day of St. Vincent, when the new season works start.
