On the wings of a griffin
The story behind our winery
Our winery’s hallmark has been an unwavering commitment to quality from our beginnings.
With passion, patience, and balance, we become recognizable by our premium sparkling wines.
We were among the first to introduce cryomaceration technology that enhances the wines with floral solid and fruity bouquets.
Our vineyards are located on the highest positions in Plešivica, over 400m above sea level, facing south, allowing us to produce the finest premium grapes labored to perfection.
This gives Griffin the distinction of creating some of the world’s best quality still and sparkling wines.
Ivančić family winery
passion and knowledge
Pouring our hearts into glass
The griffin character from our logo originates from the family coat of arms from 1759, which the family received with the noble title granted by the Austro-Hungarian empress Maria Theresa.
A winemaking technique in which the crushed grapes are held at zero temperatures to weaken the cellular structures in grape skins. This is done before fermentation to allow for more critical compound extraction l, leading to increased stability and flavor development. Low temperature also turns off microbiological activity undesirable in wine.
Insisting on quality
In recent years, we have started to deserve the recognition of the wine community, resulting in many international prizes for our still and sparkling wines.
New premises and a larger tasting room
In addition to a small intimate tasting room, we have recently opened a new, modern tasting room that can accommodate up to 60 people for wine presentations and events. We are also able to accompany guests on our covered terrace with a beautiful view of the valley and vineyards
