Year 1899 in Ilok was founded Royal School of Viticulture, whose tradition College Ilok grown up to today.
The wine road of Ilok is particularly interesting, and is definitely different from what typical wine roads have to offer because almost all the wineries are concentrated in the town. The wineries, cellars and family wine farms differ in production tradition, assortment and cellar type (old cellars in the hills or beneath houses versus new and modern wineries).
We recommend that you begin your walk at the Old Ilok Cellars of the Odescalchi Castle, where the hosts will take you through some parts of the facility and organize wine tasting and prepare cold or warm dishes.
After that, go to the wineries in the Upper or Lower Town, visit at least one new and one old winery and taste at least three varieties of wine. The informative leaflet “Welcome to the Danube’s Kingdom of Wine” which we have prepared for you will help you to organize the tour.
To experience the winegrowing hills and the landscape and walk through vineyards, go to the belvedere and vineyards of Principovac, which boast a magnificent view of the surrounding vineyards, Ilok, the Danube, the easternmost parts of Croatia and the neighbouring Backa.
To get a special experience of the wine route or a part of it, take a tour of it on the tourist train of “Ilo?ki podrumi”.
After wine tasting, finish the “wine story” with a quality meal in one of Ilok’s restaurants.
For all visits contact the operators.
