After buying land for vineyards, there followed the choice of assortment, the ordering of vine grafts, preparing the soil for planting, and finally planting the first 50,000 vines in 2004, and then the next 52,000 grapevines a year later. That means, in all 102,000 vines were planted. It was a modern plantation, and for which the knowledge and experience of winegrowers from most developed countries were used. As there was a great curiosity as to which grape produces the best results in wine production in Baranja, as many as 10 varieties of grapes were planted, of which 7 white and 3 red varieties.
In all 16.5 hectares of vineyards were planted, with the rest of the land being prepared for the planting new vineyards as soon as market demand appears. Otherwise, up until then, the red varieties were unjustifiably neglected in Baranja. Today, it has been shown that the red varieties that provide excellent results in wine.

Protecting vines against disease is solely ecological, for which we have the certificate. The vineyards are planted relatively densely with about 7,000 vines per hectare, in order to burden each individual vine less. The result is high quality grapes with a large share of the total extract of wine, perfect for producing excellent wines and wines that have a long life.
Another consequence of a small vine load is a much longer lifetime for the vineyards and greater resistance to vine diseases. From our current vineyards, we produce about 175,000 kg of grapes per year.
The grape harvest is done solely by hand, the traditional way.
