In the long and rich history of Varaždin County the number of events that took place would fill a rather thick book if listed. Therefore we leave to the historians to deal with past times, and we want to present what our County has to offer to visitors today.
People from this area are characterised by their hospitality that has roots in ancient Slavic traditions, where a guest was considered precious and was treated with special dignity, so the finest dishes and drinks were laid on to keep him or her comfortable and warm.
Asked how we could make our guests feel ‘at home’ we answered that we should take them to places where we relax, gather our strength and look forward to being with our friends. These are undoubtedly our tame, idyllic hills, lined with vineyards and beautiful vineyard cottages. This picturesque landscape, with a millennium of tradition in viticulture, is rich in valuable biological, cultural and historical features and provides exceptional opportunities for the development of tourism.
Winemakers from certain areas associated with wine-making societies have created the conditions for the formation of wine routes which, together with a tradition of viticulture in these areas, provides an extremely high-quality tourist offer.
Wine roads are rich in natural beauty and this amplifies the uniqueness of the surrounding environment, cultural and historical sights and centuries-old tradition. The basis of this offer are the high quality wines and traditional dishes from this region with an emphasis on top quality meat specialities.
A guest needs to work up an appetite in order to eat and drink well, and additional tourism offers are available along the Wine Routes in the form of various sports and pastimes, such as hunting, fishing, cycling, hiking, swimming, horse-riding, running and sightseeing of cultural and natural sights and of course traditional folk festivals and celebrations.
Toplice Wine Road
Varaždinske Toplice is the greatest and oldest Spa Town in Croatia. The heart of the Town is located on travertine terraces and along the southern slope it descends into the Bednja River Valley.
A natural gift – an abundant source of thermal water – determined the position of the settlement and gave it its name and conditioned the continuity of living and treatment through all cultural epochs. The water temperature at source is 58° C.
In 3rd Century BC we learned the names of the inhabitants of Toplice. These are the Pannonian Iasi, which is why the Romans gave the Town the name ‘AQUAE IASAE’. The modern health resort has been operating since 1820. At the beginning of the 20th Century the resort was listed amongst one of the most prominent Central European spa and health tourism destinations – and this has continued until the present day.
The Hospital, Hotel ‘Minerva’ and other hospitality facilities in Varaždinske Toplice offer guests plenty of tourist attractions, such as swimming pools with water attractions (mushrooms, waterfalls, water rapids and aquagans), sightseeing of many cultural and historical sights and rich gastronomy.
After seeing this we recommend that you take a leisurely stroll along the hills surrounding Varažinske Toplice and visit the especially attractive Toplice Wine Route.
The Wine Route extends north of Varaždinske Toplice on gentle hills called Banjščina and Martinkovec. The hilly relief makes for good vineyard positioning and expressed continental climate makes for good grape harvests.
Along with wine cellars, which are traditionally good in these vineyards, the introduction of modern wine varieties have meant that the wine quality in these area is excellent. Typically the wine from this area is between 10% and 12% Vol. of alcohol, and they are aromatic because of the slightly higher content of total acids which leads to a very pleasant freshness.
Vineyards, cellars and tasting rooms provided by generous hosts can be visited along the Wine Route. Along the Toplice Wine Route you can be in a beautiful and natural environment and at the same time enjoy excellent wines and taste traditional Zagorje specialities.
Invigorate your body and cheer up your mind. Taste our wines: Graševina, Rhine Riesling, Chardonnay, Gray Pinot, Green Silvaner, Yellow Muscat, Black Pinot and other wines of the Toplice Region.
Visit the Toplice Wine Route and find out why the song goes: ‘…I nikom nije lepše nek je nam, samo da je tako svaki dan…’ (‘… and no-one gets it better than we do, just let it be like this tomorrow too…’).
‘Klampotic’ Wine Road in Cestica
The municipality of Cestica is located in the northern part of Varaždin County, at the border with Slovenia. Their excellent cooperation has been proven by the establishment of the Haloze-Zagorje Tourist Zone. This area was inhabited even at the time of the Celts and later, the first settlements required the construction of the Roman road to Ptuj (Roman Poetovio) in Slovenia.
The first settlements mentioned in 1334 in the Statutes of the Zagreb Kaptol were Dubrava and Babinec. Cultural monuments include church architecture: the chapels of St Lawrence in Lovrečan and the Mother of God in Križanec, the Churches of St Barbara in Natkrižovljan and of the Feast of the Holy Cross in Radovec.
Other architectural heritage sights include the Križovljan Castle built in 1752.
If we were to describe the municipality of Cestica, we’d say it’s covered with woods, meadows, fields, orchards and vineyards. The vineyard areas exchange in hills and valley spreading along the south-western part of the municipality. The beginnings of viticulture go back to the Celts, it was then continued by Romans and the arrival of the Slavic peoples meant the good tradition continued until the present day, with hard-working and cheerful local people making top quality wines in their vineyard cottages.
An old legend says that the best grapevines grow between the Church of St Barbara in Cirkulane and the Church of St Barbara in Natkrižovljan, and that at the time of the Romans before Christ was born, the wine made of those vines was taken to Rome under military escort so that it could not get stolen or drunk on its way. During Austrian and Hungarian Monarchy this wine was drunk in Vienna, at the Emperor’s Court.
Wines of the area have beautiful golden colour, fresh flavour and rich aroma. A note should be made of special wines, those made of late or frosty grape picking (when dry grapes are picked), which results in top quality wines whose distinctive colours, typical odours and flavours win the hearts of everyone who tastes them.
The most common wines are white wines: Graševina, Rhine Riesling, Grey and White Pinot, Chardonnay, Sauvignon, Gewürztraminer and Yellow Muscat. Among the red wines, which are less common in this area, are: Black Pinot, Frankovka (Blaufränkisch) and Portugizac.
The highest delight of wine tasting can only be reached when your host offers you indigenous dishes of the region, with specialities like: ‘meso iz banjice’, fresh cottage cheese with sour cream, sausages, pork knuckle with sour cabbage, ‘sirni štrukli’ (cottage cheese cake) and the famous Zagorje turkey with ‘mlinci’ (hand-torn pasta). All this is served with home baked bread made of corn, barley and rye flours. Sweet dishes include apple strudels, poppy-seed or walnut rolls, ‘zlevanka’ and ‘gibanica’.
The Jalžabet Wine Route
Thanks to its favourable natural features (arable river valley along the Plitvica River and wood covered slopes of ‘Toplička’ hills), together with natural communications from the east to the west and vice versa, made this area ideal for habitation, even in pre-historic times. This has been supported by significant archaeological sites and findings in this area.
Life in the territory of today’s municipality of Jalžabet continued during Antiquity when it was a part of the Roman Empire province of Pannonia. Material evidence of those times are the Villas Rusticas along the Plitvica River to the north of Kelemen. A Villa Rustica was a well organised country farm that produced everything necessary for habitation.
As for the period of migrations and the Early Middle Ages there is almost no material or written data. The first written data on this area appear after 13th Century. These include documents on noble estates, their owners and borderline disputes among them. The most famous noble families were the counts of Šemovec, Suhodol, the Gotals, Bedekovič, Kušević and Jordisi, followed by the Batthyany, Matačić, Janković and Patačić families.
The first written sources refer to the High and Late Middle Ages and provide direct evidence on grapevine growing on the wider area of today’s Jalžabet. The oldest preserved documents mentioning vineyards on the territory of today’s municipality of Jalžabet date from the 17th and 18th Centuries. These include a list of ‘gornjak’ (bondsmen in charge of the vineyards, a ‘gorni list’ (a document issued to a bondsmen after a successful vintage) for individual vineyards and evidence of purchase and sale.
One of them is a written statement of 6th June 1759, by which a Captain of the Jalžabet Parish of St Elizabeth confirms that the Pastor’s peasant Josip Katančić bought a vineyard from the owner of the Jalžabet noble estate.
Based on the preserved records we can determine beyond any doubt that vineyards spread on the cosy slopes through which today’s Jalžabet Wine Route passes, continuously from the Middle Ages until today.
Everything stated in the records guarantees that the wines of the area were and still are of top quality and, as such, definitely deserve our attention.
The Ludbreg Wine Route
Ludbreško Vinogorje (Vineyard Hills of Ludbreg) are part of the Zagorje and Međimurje Sub-region of Continental Croatia located at the north-westernmost point of Croatia and considered to be the coldest Croatian sub-region.
Its relief is characterised by hills and barrows with vineyards covering the mountain slopes at altitude180 to 350 m.
Unlike many other vineyard sub-regions in Croatia, precipitation levels ranging from 88 to 1200 mm are well distributed and, during grapevine development, vegetation collects up to 60% of water sediment.
In ‘gorice’ (the word for ‘vineyards’ in Kajkavian dialect) there are vineyard cottages where grapes are still occasionally processed in the traditional way, and winegrowers also spend a lot of their time organising traditional celebrations: ‘Martinje’ (St Martin’s Day (11th November) to celebrate that year’s vintage of grape becoming a new wine, ‘Vincekovo’ (St Vincent’s Day, which commemorates the beginning of a new year in the vineyard) etc., in addition to relaxing after hard work.
At the same time, they are well aware that market economy required modernisation of winemaking, and the results of these changes are visible with the list of registered producers of wines with controlled designation of origin.
The most recommended wine varieties of the Ludbreg wine area are: Graševina, Rhine Riesling, Sauvignon, White Pinot, Grey Pinot, Chardonnay…
Red varieties include: Portugizac, Back Pinot, Frankovka…
In cooperation with other Societies of Winegrowers and Winemakers, societies and institutions of similar activities, and considering the well-known diligence and hospitality of the local people, Ludbreg vineyards have slowly but surely established a position within the winegrowing region of Continental Croatia.
