When you climb the steep street of Sremski Karlovci with an unusual name, Doka and reach the top of a hill, the view of the vastness of carefully tended vineyards will fascinate you. For a moment it seems to you that you are on one of the wine trails of Tuscany and that, as there, you saw a winery here in the middle of a vineyard where you want to relax and enjoy the wines and the horizon. This is exactly how you arrive at Đurđić Winery (Vinarija Đurđić).
The vineyards of this wine house were planted in 2002, when the construction of a modern winery began, which, as a family business, is now run by Dražen Đurđić. The vineyards that meet you here are on the three borders of Doka, Raša and Selište stretches, and an area ofexceptional properties for grapevine growing. The exposure of the slopes to the sun and beneficial breeze from the Carpathians, other climatic characteristics, the proximity of the protected nature of the National Park Fruška Gora and the Danube, and the soil composition here give grapes and wines the quality that places Fruška Gora among the God-given wine mountains. The Đurđićs based their wine production on carefully nurtured vineyards and the following assortment of grapes: Neoplanta, White Sauvignon, Traminac, Probus, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The wines on offer include: Đurđić Sauvignon Blanc, Đurđić Traminac, Đurđić Neoplanta, Đurđić Mlada Simonida, Đurđić Probus, Đurđić Cabernet Franc, Đurđić Crni Vitez (Bermet red) and Đurđić Liturgijsko Vino (lower percentage of alcohol). These wines are created by careful selection of grape varieties, application of modern trends in viticulture and winemaking, use of high technology in wine production and storage, in a way that will never leave modern wine lovers indifferent.
