About us

History
& Winery

Our history dates back to the year 1900, when Tomaso Sontacchi, started to work as a vineyard estate manager at remarkable Zdenko Turković Estate in City of Kutjevo.

Today in our vineyards in Venje and Kutjevo we grow such varieties as Graševina, Muller Thurgau, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon and Portugieser – mostly red grapes. Our winery is nestled in the heart of Kutjevo, at Graševina square in converted old brick masonry stable.

Winemaking

As a registered integrated producer in viticulture we promote viticulture that respects the environment. We maintain a high biological diversity in the ecosystem of the vineyard and in surrounding areas.

From estate grown grapes, our wines are fermented with the wild yeasts native to its terroir. Storage capacity of winery is 40.000 liters (10.500 gallons).

Wines
& Tasting

Sontacchi’s historic estate offers various wine tasting rooms where guests can sample a selection of fine wines and learn about winemaking. Except our ordinary stand alone varietal bottling of Graševina and Pinot Noir, the most famous is our legendary red cuveé named Kutjevački Kitokret. Wines are fermented and maturated in stainless steel vats and Slavonian oak barrels.
