MK Kosović Family Winery (Porodična vinarija MK Kosović) is one in a series of Karlovci wineries and wine cellars in Karlovačkog mira Street. It is an alley that reminds of the event thanks to which the town was written in all the world history textbooks, and thanks to the offer of wine in all modern tourist itineraries of Serbia.
The MK Kosović Family Winery was founded in 1995 by Milan, and is now taken over by Bojan Kosović, the second generation of winegrowers and winemakers of the family whose “slava” (saint patron’s day) is St. Tryphon, protector of winegrowers. The Kosovićs based their wine production on carefully cultivated vineyards in the vicinity of Sremski Karlovci and on the following assortment of grapes: Italian Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon White, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The following wines are on offer: Italian Riesling Kosović, Sauvignon Blanc Kosović, Chardonnay Kosović, Merlot Kosović, Cabernet Sauvignon Kosović, Rose Kosović, Bermet Kosović (red) and Beli Bermet Kosović. These are natural, quality and strong wines that carry all the properties of the esteemed Fruška Gora terroir. The idea and goal that Kosovićs strive for is that quality is always ahead of quantity, and wine production is a process that helps nature to discover all the peculiarities of the wine of the Fruška Gora region.
The wines of this wine house were awarded at wine fairs and festivals in Novi Sad, Sremski Karlovci and Inđija. At the Grand Wine Evaluation of Serbia in 2021, the MK Kosović Family Winery won the following awards: in the category “Rose still wines” (gold for Rose Kosović 2020); in the category “White still wines from local non-aromatic varieties” (silver for Italian Riesling Kosović 2020); in the category “White still wines from international non-aromatic varieties” (silver for Chardonnay Kosović 2020 and bronze for Sauvignon Blanc Kosović 2020).
When you enter the yard of the Kosovićs, the first thing you notice is the liveliness of a multi-generational household gathered around wine production and turned to more and more mass tourist visits. The view of the newcomers often stops at the well from which a few thousand litres of water have always been taken to the vineyard for planting new grapevine stems, but also for all other viticultural needs. The yard is spatially dominated on the one side by facilities for wine processing and storage, and on the other by two modernly decorated wine tasting salons that can accommodate about a hundred visitors. The tourist programme begins with entering the yard and meeting with the spatial organization of life and work of a Sremski Karlovci winegrowing family.
Tasting and presentation of all wines on offer, with short sommelier clues and snacks for separating the wine, is basically accompanied by a story about the life and work of the Kosović family. The small exhibition, which consists of a grape press and an old grinder, always attracts the attention of visitors, so it usually becomes a backdrop for photography. The gastronomic atmosphere is not lacking. For pre-announced groups, ham, cheese, homemade rolls, bannocks with cracklings or lunch, usually traditionally rich “paprikaš” (stew), can be served by arrangement.
Opening hours: Monday to Sunday from 09:00 a.m. – 09:00 p.m. Announcement is mandatory for group visits two days in advance.
