The graphic design of Vinica Castle and winery originates from the coat of arms, which was first mentioned in 1687 by Valvasor. The background color was blue with a gold griffin holding a cluster. Blue means honor, glory, honesty, and loyalty, while gold means magnificence, reputation, dignity and wealth. The Griffin symbol stands for courage, bravery, and guardian of the treasure. Griffin’s pose represents a willingness to fight. The cluster symbolically represents the main traditional industry in the area.
