The Gril homestead is a cultural monument of local importance. The set includes the homestead house, farm building, vineyard, meadow and orchard. Presumably, it was built in the mid-19th century as a small winery in wine-growing slopes of Lipje and Vinska Gora. At the end of the 19th century, the vines by the occurrence of the vine louse withdrew, and wineries were adapted into small farms. That is when the farm building was built next to the house. The homestead is now one of the few relatively well-preserved examples of winegrowers’ heritage in the area of Vinska Gora.
