Vlado Krauthaker is probably the most important private Croatian winemaker. At the beginning of the 90s he founded private winemaking in Slavonia together with Ivan Enjingi. Krauthaker then defined new Grasevina styles, and in the last 10 years he has been inventively and successfully producing red wines. His red Mercs is extraordinary. Krauthaker owns about 80 hectares of vineyards, some of which are on the top positions of Kutjevo area. His wines deservedly feature in all Croatian restaurants that take themselves seriously.
