Although Iločki podrumi is the most famous of Ilok’s wine producers, it is the large number of independent wineries that give the town its flavour. These are by and large family businesses, selling wines directly to visitors to their cellars. Visitors are welcome (you can taste wines by the glass and might also be offered cheese-and-ham nibbles), although a prior phone call is advisable to ensure that someone is at home.

Buhač Hercegovačka 1 t 032 593 100 and t 098 933 3995. One of the up-and-coming boutique producers in Ilok, producing good Graševinas and Chardonnays, as well as a highly regarded Merlot.
Knezović Matije Gupca 101 t 032 593 257. Friendly family house with cellar and tasting room, offering Chardonnay and red Frankovka (Blaufränkisch) alongside the usual Graševina.
Stipetić Radićeva 16 t 032 591 068. A family winery with a two hundred-year tradition right in the centre of Ilok, with cellars built into the hillside. Known for good-quality Graševina and Rhine Riesling.
