HOME OF PRECISE WINE AND DIVERSE HISTORY

WELCOME TO VINICA CASTLE

Where the sun kisses the earth, the vine produces grapes. This miracle of nature has been cultivated in Vinica for centuries. Moreover, the village even got its name from the Latin word for wine – Vinitum. Vinica Winery is a contribution of the 21st century and a revival of the wine story. As a part of the medieval Vinica Castle, it merges the rich wine history and cultural heritage.

MEDIEVAL CASTLE WITH A SPECIAL MISSION

AWAKENING OF THE SLEEPING BEAUTY

Vinica Castle was first mentioned in 1082 and achieved its key role in the 15 century, as a fortress during Turkish invasions. In order to protect local inhabitants and to prevent the Turks from entering middle Europe, the priest built a tower with a strategic position above the St. Catharine chapel. The castle holds many stories, that today generations will never fully know. But all the stories have one thing in common – wine. In 2015 today`s owner Maxim noticed the potential and decided to awake this sleeping beauty again and continue the story of wine in the renovated castle.
