Ilocki Podrumi

The unusual Iločki Podrumi winecellar was built around 1450 beneath the castle of Ilok by Nicholas of Ilok, ruler over the Slavonian territories.
In the late 1600s, after the end of the Ottoman power, the castle of Ilok passed to the Prince Odescalchi family, and Livio Odescalchi planted the first Traminer grapes there in 1710 around the family’s summer residence, on a hill called today Principovac. This viticultural zone is considered Slavonia’s Grand Cru, and since 1700 its producers have grown and bottled Traminac (Roter Traminer) and Grasevina (Riesling Italico).
The appellation of Vukovo lies near the Danube River, while Principovac gives its name to the wines grown on the hillslopes surrounding the Odescalchi hunting lodge.
The historic cellars, which miraculously escaped destruction during the Serbo-Croat wars, still preserve significant reserves of old vintages of sweet wines, notably some bottles of 1947 Traminac, a wine that helped mark the 1953 coronation of Elizabeth II.
