Winegrowing has long tradition in Feričanci. It was mostly influenced by Cistercians and monks from Našice. After exile of Turks, the settlers accepted the culture of winegrowing and wine production so a cellar, currently known as Old cellar of 1000 hl capacity was built in 1850.
At the end of the 18th century first vineyards were planted with sort Frankovka and it continued in the 19th, 20th and 21st century.
SOME SOURCES SAY THAT FRANKOVKA IS AN AUTOCHTHONOUS SORT OF GRAPES WHILE OTHERS SAY IT ORIGINATES FROM AUSTRIA.
Old cellar built in 1850 is a proof that winegrowing and wine making was always taken seriously in this area. From the 18th century we have noted several migration waves of new inhabitants in this region. These processes ended at the beginning of the 20th century by settlement of Croats from northern Dalmatia who have brought and found part of viticultural habits in this area.
During that period wine production showed an upward trend. First vine was planted and as a result Feravino cellar was built in 1962.
From 1996 Feravino winery was owned by Nexe grupa, after that it operated as independent company and in 2015 it merged with company Osilovac d.o.o. that took over all right and liabilities of Feravino as a company and Feravino remained the winery’s brand.
We own around 160ha of vineyards (50% of white sorts and 50% of red sorts of grape).
