The Wine Road of Međimurje

Tradition has it that the Romans were the first to plant grapevines on the gentle hills of Međimurje. Today, good asphalt roads, connecting about thirty wine cellars and tasting rooms, run through the picturesque landscape streaked with more than 2,500 acres of vineyards. There, one can taste excellentwhite wines(Sauvignon, Moslavac, Chardonnay, Welschriesling, Rhine Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Traminer, Zeleni Silvanac, Yellow Muscat…) and some red wines (Pinot blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon…). The wines range from excellent blend wines, through high quality sort wines, to superior predicates – late harvestand ice wines. Wine tastings in nicely furnished tasting rooms offer a possibility to taste traditional home-made cold cuts. Individual visits to wine cellars and tasting rooms should be appointed by phone at least a few hours prior to the arrival. Individual visits to the wine road can be made by car, by bike or on foot. Except by car, organised tourist groups can visit the wine road by a special wine train. All access routes and facilities are marked by tourist signs. The wine quality and  tasting rooms design place this wine road to the very top of Croatian  enological offer. As a result, in 2007 it was proclaimed the best product of continental Croatia.
