Croatian Uplands

Croatian Uplands is the winemaking region in the North-Western part of Croatia. The vineyards in this region are mostly located at the altitude of 100 to 400 meters, and most vineyards have been cultivated on the lower parts of the southward-facing slopes of various hills and mountains in the region. The climate of the region is mild continental, with influences of cold air from the Alps to the North, and hot air from the Mediterranean to the South.

The most common white variety in Croatian Uplands is Graševina (Italian Riesling), followed by Rhein Riesling, Chardonnay, Kraljevina, Škrlet, Sauvignon Blanc. Red wine varieties are much less common, but Blue Franconian, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon can be found here. Dessert, predicate and late harvest wines are traditionally made in the region, especially in Međimurje.
