The Karanac wine cellar, rustic interior and newly opened tasting room and winery reflect the century-old “Svijetli dvori” tradition. Their gospel: quality wine is a synthesis of love, expertise and a good wine varietal.
Dotted around the estate are the remains of the old Hungarian Világosvár (meaning bright castle), namely a gator (wine cellar), a deep well and the 1846 wayside sculpture erected by order of an Austro-Hungarian colonel.
Confirming its long history is the Turkish Route, an ancient Roman road stretching along the “Svijetli dvori” vineyards. Named after its Ottoman restorers, it connects Batina and Beli Manastir.
The sunbathed vineyards on the south hillside of Banovo Hill proffer excellent wines, especially of graševina (Welschriesling) – a white wine varietal of solid yield and superior berries. Numerous awards are proof of the “Svijetli dvori” wine quality.
Allow the graševina, sauvignon, cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay and yellow Muscat of “Svijetli dvori” to tell the palate the most beautiful tale of the Baranja Hill wines.
Aside from wine, taste the homemade provisions. The winery staff will gladly arrange hunting and photo safari tours.
