Legend of Kutjevo cellar from the 18th century inspired us to create premium Maximo wine line. Numerous notch on the wall of the old Kutjevo cellar are testimony to the love of the emperor Mary Theresa and baron Franjo Trenk. We wanted to pass the line of cuvée Maximo Oro, Maximo Bianco and Maximo Nero to the passion that the walls of the basement are undoubtedly kept in a series of exceptional wines. Allow yourself to enjoy the award-winning wines from the Maximo line.
The name "Vallis Honesta De Gotho" is an old latin name that cistercians, builders of the Kutjevo cellar in 1232 gave to Požega valley, and Kutjevo abbey respectively. De Gotho premium line of Graševina and Pinot noir represents the hommage to outstanding wine history and the importance we inherit for almost eight centuries. The ground plan of the abbey on the front label represents a long history and tradition, and the wine style presents modern technology, selection from one of the best vineyard positions of Croatia - Hrnjevac and the best characteristics of the wine and terroir from which these wines come.
From one of the best vineyard positions in Kutjevo wine region, Hrnjevac, comes prestigious and rare specimens of exquisite wines - predicat wines from ice harvest. The wines of the ice harvest are the strongest expression of nature. They are produced from grapes harvested after their usual maturity, in the phase of overripe, when the temperature in the vineyard is -7 °C or lower. Such wines are a peculiarity in the world and worldwide jury members regularly give them the highest rewards. Kutjevo winery is the largest and most prized producer of these wines in Croatia. Due to the richness of aromas and flavors we recommend tasting the ice harvested Graševina and Traminer cooled to 4-6 °C, as the best aperitif or at the end of meal with desserts.
