When on that Friday in the afternoon, back on 27 June 2013, Master Ištvan Grabar and winemaker Andraš Novak raised their glasses to celebrate the completion of the fresco above the entrance to the cellar, they toasted the wine vision that is still very much alive a hundred years later at number 2 in Sveti Urban. The common, simple and short-term wines of the Novak family did not gain a more distinct personality until the middle of the 1920s, when the first generation of the Štampar family came into possession of the real estate and all vineyards. Since then, the passion and commitment to the vine have been the first and unconditional tenet for all generations of the family. Nowadays, the great Štampar wines begin their lives as early as in the vineyard, as before. The Štampar family started out with only 3,000 vines of a single variety, an old Croatian oak press made in 1927, and scarcely a few worn barrels in a small cellar. Today, in a constant pursuit for perfection in a blend of tradition, know-how and innovation, the Štampar family offers exceptionally high-quality and acclaimed wines of a dozen most representative varieties of the wine-growing part of Međimurje to a discerning and demanding market.
