The Erdut terroir
„Erdutski vinogradi d.o.o. are set in the sloping hillside of Dalj mount alongside the banks of the Danube river, flowing beside Erdut and making it a peninsula. The conditions are ideal for viticulture – a height of 130 to 190 meters above sea level, slightly sloping towards the south on alluvial soils – we have the largest plantation vineyard in Croatia. Erdut vineyards cultivate 450 hectares of their own vineyards and they are also biggest vineyards in one piece in Croatia.
White varieties are dominant in the whole vineyard, and in the Erdut vineyards they take up 75% of the surface. Graševina is the dominant variety, planted on 280 hectares. Besides graševina, we have chardonnay, pinot gris, traminer, Rhine riesling. Red wine varieties: cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, frankovka, pinot noir and zweigelt take up 25% of the space.“
