Enogastronomy

Just as Medjimurje’s heritage is interesting and imaginative, so is the traditional cuisine of Medjimurje. It has been centuries since Medjimurje’s wine story started being intertwined with the scent of exquisite original dishes. As a testimony, there is a famous cookbook dating from the 17th century Zrinski court, which contains a list of recipes of Medjimurje's authentic Baroque culinary experience and illustrates the dishes as they used to be prepared for the mighty noble family. If you happen to be in Medjimurje, don’t miss out pretepena juha (‘thick cream soup’),  meso 'z tiblice (cooked cured meat packed in a wooden barrel), Turoš cottage cheese, temfani picek (chicken in a cream sauce) with buckwheat porridge, međimurska gibanica (layer cake)... These dishes are best accompanied by Medjimurje's lively refreshing wines for an extraordinary wine experience. These include Graševina (Welschriesling), Moslavac (Furmint), Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Traminac (Gewurztraminer), Muscat Blanc as well as wonderful Bordeaux varietals. Full, balanced and fresh wines with pleasant tannins go well with timeless cuisine of Medjimurje.
