The Kopjar vinery shot up to the creme de la creme of Croatian wine scene. Vineyards, which were planted in 2005, are cultivated in line with eco-agriculture. The owner, Mr. Robert Kopjar, actively joined this project in 2012. The human touch is crucial in producing process, and the final result is the best quality grapes which procreate the finest terroir wines as a result.
Vineyards are located in the south and south-east exposition at 250-260 meters above the sea level. The vineyards and the winery are at the least end of Varaždinska county bordering with Krapinsko-Zagorska county, in a small village of Pece. Vineyards are mostly planted with white varieties. A green harvest is commonly used and wines are left on lees in inox or big oak barrels.
The noblest grape variety, Riesling, in this micro-location brings a hint of Alsace in your glass. The perfect balance between sugar and acidity will leave you speechless. Aromas such as citrus, peach, and a hint of petrol are enriched with fine minerality and discrete botrytis which concentrates the flavors and brings a touch of tropical fruit and honey.
