The Steyer winery is located in the Plitvica village near Apace.
They cultivate 37 acres of vineyards, situated on the near-by
Plitvicki and Azenski Hill. They grow several varietals including
two reds but focus mainly on Gewurztraminer which does very well in
their climate. They make a traditional method sparkling using this
grape as well as an intensely flavoured barrique still wine. And
once every four years they make an ice wine that is picked on the
leap year, which usually gains a gold medal from Decanter. Danilo
Steyer takes great care in producing his wines in the long standing
traditions of his family. The tending of his vines in a natural way
and nurturing his wines to bring our their potential has been
passed down through the generations. One of his large oak barrels
has been in use by his family for over 200 years.
Time, tradition and patience.
