The southern slopes of Hrnjevac, the village on the left on the Vetovo-Kutjevo road.
Go through the village till vineyards and the forest along a narrow path left of the vineyards. The path through the forest is not marked so you have to be cautious. There are a few diverging points, but the steepest option towards north should be chosen. After half an hour or so we come out of the forest to a clearing, then ascent for a few minutes and on the left there is the mark of Roga's stone with a stamp and entry book.
This is the end of our tour, but for the experienced hikers if they go on the path leads to Tromeđa and Lipa, Mlaka Hut and Kapavac, or even the historical medieval town Ružica on the north side of Papuk. The way back is the same.

Sightseeing and tourism
The family tradition has existed since 1890. when the first vine was planted on the slopes of Krndija by Koloman Enjingi in Hrnjevac. Love for wine and other secrets of the trade have been carried over generations till today.
Ivan Enjingi put an end to the traditonal way of selling wine in barrels and started with bottled wine. All wines in his cellar come from ecological production since they haven't been treated and grow naturally. You can also order wines online via their webshop. The best sorts are a high quality Graševina, Bijeli i crni kupaži Venje, Chardoanny and Zweigelt. The vineyards have been cultivated on the sunny, south slopes of Krndija and have been approximately 15 years old, whereas there are some up to 35 years old but very well kept. Beside the wine tasting, traditional dishes from Slavonia and home-made bread, Enjingi offers accommodation in a considerable amount of appartments and rooms.
