Fruškogorski vinogradi Winery

Fruškogorski vinogradi Winery (Fruškogorski vinogradi) is a winery that started its life in 2006 with the privatization of the Agricultural Co-operative in Banoštor, and its first wine was produced in 2009. Since then, initially as Quet Winery, and then as Fruškogorski vinogradi owned by Gordan and Pavle Bašić it has been on the map of the most famous wineries of Serbia, those selected whose wines are with a geographical origin indication.

Here, on 100 hectares of vineyards, on idyllic slopes that picturesquely descend into the Danube, wines are produced based on the following grape assortment[1]: Chardonnay, Italian Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, Merlot, Sauvignon White, Traminac and Probus. The curiosity is that the areas under Pinot Noir are the largest in Serbia. The wines of the Quet series house include: Quet Chardonnay, Quet Traminac, Quet Grašac, Quet Pinot Blanc, Quet Cuvée Limited Edition, Quet Merlot, Quet Pinot Noir, Quet Pinot Noir Rose, and Quet Probus Rose. They also offer table red, white and pink wines from the Fruškać series and Tri Sunca wines (in the years when the quality of the grapes allows it).

The wines of Fruškogorski vinogradi Winery are creative, sincere wines, those that have the freshness of Fruška Gora terroir, the unique sunshine of the Banoštor slopes, but also the safe, determined, brave and wide heart of оenologist Jelena Petrović, ready to allow nature to give us the best. This is illustrated by the wine Tri Sunca Traminac late harvest, where dried berries are picked from mid-November to mid-December (at the time when the oenologist determines) to get a multiple award-winning wine of exclusive quality, and the most recent prize is a silver award at the London Wine Competition 2021.

The wines of this house have been awarded many times at international wine festivals, as confirmed by the awards in the last two years: Grand Wine Evaluation of Serbia in 2021 in the category “White still wines from local non-aromatic varieties” (silver for Quet Grašac 2018 and bronze for Quet Grašac 2017); in the category “Rose still wines” (bronze for Quet Probus Rose 2020 and Quet Pinot Noir Rose 2020); in the category “Red still wines from international non-aromatic varieties (bronze for Quet Merlot 18+ edition 2016, Quet Merlot 18+ edition 2013 and Quet Cuvée Limited Edition 2018); in the category “Still wines from local and international aromatic varieties” (silver for Quet Traminac 2018); The Balkans International Wine Competition and Festival (BIWC) Sofia, 2020 (silver for Tri Sunca Traminac late harvest 2015; bronze for Quet Traminac 2018 and Quet Cuvée Limited Edition); International Wine Challenge – (AWC) Vienna, 2020 (gold for Tri Sunca Traminac late harvest 2015, silver for Quet Cuvée Limited Edition and seal of recognition for Quet Traminac 2018); London Wine Competition 2020 (silver for Quet Merlot 13/15).

On the list of the Best Serbian – top class wines with controlled geographical origin – wines with a purple label of quality and origin managed by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Water Management of the Republic of Serbia are two white wines of this winery: Quet Grašac 2018 and Quet Wine Pinot Blanc 2012.

Fruškogorski vinogradi Winery receives visitors upon prior notice, and the programmes that are organized are wine tasting (with appropriate snacks for wine separation) in the vineyard, from which a unique view of the wine-growing Danube part of Srem is provided. The planned projects are in connection with the expansion of vineyards, the promotion of wine culture and the upgrading of the tourist offer, which includes the construction of a pier in Banoštor, and a multifunctional centre in the Church of St. Rudolph in the same place.
