JASNA ANTUNOVIĆ TURK I BRANIMIR TURK
How we made our wine magic
By planting first vineyards in 2004, as well as constructing a modern winery in 2009, Jasna Antunović Turk, an entrepreneur and economist, started a new life adventure.
Under the ANTUNOVIĆ WINES brand, her wine magic was made in the Erdut vineyards!
Excellent Danube terroir, great positions of planted vineyards, selected vines, great love, curiosity, creativity, expertise and technological perfection in processing, teamwork and attractive brand, harmonious and continuous relationship with customers and suppliers have brought great results.
ANTUNOVIĆ WINES, with recognizable female signature, became one of the most awarded wineries in Croatia (DWWA London 2017, Decanter platinum medal for Graševina Premium 2013 and Mundus Vini Germany 2021, Best of show gold medal for Chardonnay sur Lie 2017).
Son Branimir Turk, mag. ing. agr. with completed training in Bordeaux as a sommelier and wine consultant, since 2020 he has been involved in winemaking and viticulture with new knowledge and new energy, both independently and with his family.
The winery is located in north-eastern Croatia, in a winemaking region known as Podunavlje – vinogorje (vineyards) Erdut.
The characteristics of terroir are excellent!
The exquisite microclimate of the Danube watercourse, fertile and loose soil and equal distribution of precipitation and large number of sunny days days all ensure highly favourable conditions for planting various grapevine varieties.
After harvesting grape planted on 8 hectares of land, the ANTUNOVIĆ winery produces high quality and premium wines in a plant with the capacity of 1.000 hl.
Our assortment consists of 75% of white wine varieties (Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Sylvaner, Muscat Ottonel and Chasselas) and 25% of red wine varieties (pinot noir, cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon).
The winemaking facility also includes a wine tasting room where guests can enjoy not only wine but also homemade culinary specialities.
The marketing and winemaking principle of the winery is called boutique winery, premium wines produced in small production lines intended for real wine lovers!
One of the specificities of the microlocation of the vineyards of Erdut is the watercourse of the Danube river that embraces this area on three sides, thus influencing weather conditions, which is revealed by the reflection of sunrays, wind rose and air humidity.
An additional flavour of the wine is provided by the composition of soil, that is eroded Chernozem, which is moderately rich in humus but pretty rich in minerals and microelements.
The Antunović family grows grape as the only raw material for winemaking on their plantation spreading over 8 hectares of land.
The shape of the grapevine is derived from application of the single Guyot technique and the average yield ranges from 1.5 to 2.5 kg per vine.
The protection and fertilization of grapevine follow the principles of organic production, minimal use of plant protection products and no use of herbicides.
The vineyards are situated on the southern slopes of the hills of Dalj (from the viewpoint of pedology, these are foothills of Fruška Gora), more precisely there are two vineyard sites: Šušnjar and Rudina located at the altitude from 120 to 170 m.
We handpick our grapes!
As far as the climate is concerned, the main characteristics of the vineyards of Erdut encompass relatively low precipitation and hot summers, mild and dry autumns, cold winters and moderate winds blowing from different directions, frequent dry periods and a lot of sunshine throughout the whole year.
The average annual precipitation amounts to approximately 600 mm.
