WINERY SVIJETLI DVORI
For a good wine, apart from love, a quality sort and professionalism are necessary, and by combining them, we achieve enviable results in production and wine placement.
The name of the vineyard “Svijetli dvori” stems from the age of Hungarian rule as “Vilagos var”, which translated means “Svijetli dvori”. However, a palace is not present there anymore.
The old site has been demolished, while only a cellar was kept – gator, a well whose depth reaches 46 meters, as well as an interesting monument – “krajputas” milestone from 1846, raised by the order of Austria-Hungary’s colonel.
Alongside the vineyard, a Turkish path is stretched, a former Roman road that reached from Batina to Beli Manastir, renewed by Turkish invaders, hence the name popular among Baranja inhabitants, the Turkish path.
