In a small, but well-known village in Baranja, Karanac, a silver medal from the prestigious Wine Competition Decanter 2018 went on. Specifically, she went to the hands of prominent winemakers from Winery and Tasting Room Svijetli dvori, thanks to the delicious wine of harmonious flavors and aromas – Graševina, select harvest 2015.

Decanter World Wide Award (Decanter 2018) is the world’s largest wine competition, which was held this year in London.

Decanter 2018 reported more than 15,000 wine samples from various continents, and was evaluated by about 270 experts.

The competition is designed so that all winners can be registered regardless of their origin, technical details of wine and so on.


For wine tasting or wine assessment, they organized categories according to country, region, color, grape variety, style, harvest and price. Such categorization ensures mutual evaluation of similar wines.

More than 260 top experts from all over the world rated the wines reported. The judges were also organized by categories; initially based on the region and its expertise. Wine tasters try wines individually. They know the region, style and price, but the wine producer is unknown to them. They then compare wine notes and assign a grade.


Decanter 2018 will be specially remembered by us, because Croatian wines have won many praises. Among them, the famous Baranja winery Svijetli dvori was particularly prominent. As we mentioned earlier, it is about the Graševina select harvest 2015 that fully deserved and justified winning the silver medal.


It is a yellow clear wine dominated by a botrytis type of scent. It is very clean and sophisticated with dry grape traces, which are found in the wine due to late harvest of the grape.

Wine is creamy, full body. Semi-sweet in taste. It is ideally suited to dishes of rich and intense flavors, with fatty and spicy cheeses, etc. However, for the best flavor we recommend that you drink it without food to fully experience its aroma and flavor.
