Verus was founded by three friends and winegrowers: Rajko Žličar, Danilo Šnajder and Božidar Grabovac.
We brought together our family vineyards, expertise and work, and opened a wine cellar on the premises of a former bakery in the spring of 2007. We are united by our dedication to family traditions, since our parents and grandparents were closely linked to these vineyards and their wines.
Verus means true, real, actual, as well as honest, genuine, unpretentious, fair. We invariably strive to have this kind of attitude towards everyone and hope that our wines exhibit the same qualities.
Using our expertise and meticulous work in the vineyard and wine cellar we produce wines that unquestionably express the characteristics of the variety and vintage, as well as of our winegrowing region.
We want to produce full flavoured, well balanced wines with an intense and clear varietal expression, which are true representatives of our winegrowing region and vintage. Every day, we invest all our energy, expertise and work into reaching this goal.
We believe that the quality of the wine depends exclusively on the quality of the grapes, which bring with them a wealth of substances into the wine cellar. It is then our job to strive to retain and capture as much as possible in the bottle using protective winemaking techniques.
We chose varieties that have been well-established here for centuries, are at home in our region and which we are sure can best take advantage of the natural features of their environment.
