Archaeologists have discovered that the Illyrians, Celts, Romans and Slavs inhabited the Požega valley. Its inhabitants have always appreciated and used the natural properties of this region. Viticulture in this area dates back to the arrival of the Cistercians in 1232.

Established on the slopes of Krndija hill, they encouraged viticulture, built cellars and settled in the Kutjevo region. Vlado Krauthaker, agricultural engineer and oenologist, owner of the farm, contributes to perpetuate the long wine-growing tradition of the Kutjevo region.

At the time of its creation, the estate consisted of one hectare of vines. In 2010, Vlado Krauthaker acquired 29 hectares. Today, he cultivates an additional 55 hectares in rented land.

The vineyards are located between 200 and 300 m above sea level. The area records annual rainfall between 500 and 800 mm/m².

At this altitude, the sandy soil and thinner humus cover sedimentary rocks, providing ideal warm soil for the grape growing season in July, August and September. Combined with less than average precipitation, this frequently rocky and loamy soil requires a certain amount of experience and knowledge.
