November 14, 2023 – As Wine & more writes, in the enchanting world of winemaking, where passion and dedication intertwine, one Croatian couple stands out, weaving a tale of love, innovation, and exquisite flavors. Meet Lucija and Martin, the dynamic duo behind the burgeoning Enosophia winery, nestled in the heart of Našice in Slavonia, Croatia.
Croatian wine power couple
Their story is not just about crafting exceptional wines; it’s a testament to the power of love and collaboration in the world of viticulture. Lucija, hailing from Zagreb, and Martin, a native of the Zadar region, found their shared passion for wine during their college days at the Faculty of Agriculture in Zagreb.
Their love story blossomed as their connection deepened amidst vineyards and wine tours, culminating in a partnership that would transform the Croatian wine scene.
At Enosophia, Lucija and Martin channel their passion into creating modern wines that capture the essence of Slavonia. Lucija, the visionary viticulturist and wine production head, and Martin, the skilled chief oenologist, complement each other perfectly.
Their harmonious partnership is evident in their innovative creations, such as “Graševina Trs No.5,” a tribute to Croatia’s beloved graševina vines, and “Matarouge,” a delightful blend of Frankovka and Pinot Noir, resulting in a captivating pink wine named after the joy of reunions, “Nice to See You.“
The heart of their winemaking journey lies in their dedication to the Frankovka variety, a traditional red wine grape of continental Croatia. With labels like “Lingua Franka” and the exquisite “Rubi Fusion,” a blend of Frankovka, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, they have pushed the boundaries of innovation.
They also introduced two sparkling wines created through the Charmat (Prosecco) method: “Today Blanc” and “Today Rose.” These wines serve as a reminder that every day is a cause for celebration with a glass of light and aromatic sparkling wine.
Commitment to quality has earned them prestigious accolades, including plenty Decanter awards, affirming their place among Croatia’s winemaking elite.
Beyond their professional success, Lucija and Martin’s love story has blossomed into a beautiful family, adding depth to their shared adventure.
Their journey from college sweethearts to wine connoisseurs is a testament to their enduring bond and shared passion for the art of winemaking.
As they continue to pour their love, wisdom, and creativity into Enosophia, there’s no doubt that their legacy will continue to flourish, inspiring wine enthusiasts and romantics alike with their enchanting Croatian wine romance.
