Should you go along the Međimurje Wine Trail, you’ll encounter tradition and know-how transposed into vine growing, production and cultivating noble varieties.
Međimurje Wine Trail has been continental Croatia’s best original tourist product since 2007.
Međimurje is surrounded by centuries-old forests, two rivers, breathtakingly beautiful nature and rolling hills that give rise to the best wine made from grape harvested in their very own vineyards.
The Dvanajščak-Kozol family planted their first vineyards in the 1990s in a effort to continue their parents’ tradition. This fact makes them one of the younger winegrowers in the region. Mohokos, the highest elevation in Međimurje (lying at 344.40 metres), is where you’ll find one of their 8 hectares of vineyards in addition to Grofovo and Okrugli stol. When it comes to white varieties, the vineyards owned by the Dvanajščak-Kozol family contain Moslavac, Welschriesling, Rheinriesling, Pinot blanc, Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Gewürztraminer. Pinot noir was produced in Međimurje for the very first time in their cellar.
Moslavac, i.e. Pušipel, is the distinguished white variety. It’s called Šipon in Slovenia, Furmint in Hungary, while in Austria and Germany it’s known as Mosler.
Being an autochthonous variety, Moslavac or Pušipel has an aroma that’s been doused with citrus fruit and green apples, low alcohol levels a pronounced acidity, which is characteristic of such wines that can be served on a daily basis with simpler dishes.
DK Grofovo Cuvee from the Grofovo location is a blend of four white varieties: Pušipel, Chardonnay, Welschriesling and Pinot blanc.
The Dvanajščak-Kozol family takes great pride in their eco wine, which is produced in just 1000 bottles.
