Fodor's Expert Review Kutjevačko Vinogorje

Požega Winery/Brewery/Distillery

There are 30 different wineries to choose from around Kutjevo; the biggest, and oldest, is Kutjevačko Vinogorje. The story of this winery is the story of the Kutjevo itself; its cellars date back to 1232 (though the guides will tell you Romans were producing wine here long before that), when the town was founded by Cistercian Monks from Hungary. Over the years, it passed into the hands of Ottomans, Jesuits, Habsburgs, and private families, and the stories of each of these eras and the influence they left on Kutjevo are etched chronologically onto the Slavonian oak barrels in the cellar. Ask your guide about the legend of Maria Theresa Habsburg and her dalliances on the circular stone table (where wine tastings are done).
