Fruškogorska wine tourAdd to My Tours Remove from My Tours
Viticulture in the area of Fruska Gora and in general Vojvodina is one of the oldest in Europe. The flock is the outgrowth of a rich country on the banks of Fruska Gora for 1700 years, when the first line was planted by the Roman Emperor Probus from the ancient Sirmium. Fruška Gora wines were exported even in the 15th century in the Czech Republic and Poland.
The authentic wine of this region is bermet, which traders had exported to the United States 150 years ago, and according to some data Bermet was also on the “Titanika” wine card. It is a special liqueur wine, which resembles Italian vermouth. In this area, vineyards are located on slopes, plateaus and slopes of Fruška Gora, and the Danube River has a beneficial effect on them.

The event took place on a hill above the Sremski Karlovci.
