Vinarium Winery (Vinarija Vinarium) is a family endeavour created by the efforts of the Bikicki and Šljivančanin families. The first vineyards were erected in 2009 in Banoštor, and a large part of them stretch along the border with the “Fruška Gora” National Park.
The assortment of grapes on which the wine production rests consists of: White Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Noir, Traminac, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Župljanka, Tamjanika Red and Grašac. Out of 26 hectares of vineyards organic production is applied at 10 hectares, and in the next five years, the plan is to completely switch to organic grape production. The Fruška Gora terroir shapes and determines the character of the wine, and this is first reflected in the earlier ripening of the grapes, which collect more sugar, thus enabling the production of full wines.
The following wines are offered: Vinarium Župljanka (white, dry wine from the autochthonous grape variety), Vinarium Pinorange (a unique wine obtained by maceration from Pinot Gris), Vinarium Sauvignon Blanc (wine with geographical origin), Vinarium Pinot Grigio (one of the most popular white wines), Vinarium Traminac (wine with geographical origin), Vinarium Dedovac (blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Tamjanika Red), Vinarium Crna Tamjanika (dessert wine), Vinarium Merlot (wine with full taste of fruit aromas), Vinarium Cabernet Sauvignon (drinkable ruby red, fruit wine) and Vinarium Pinot Noir (wine for true wine lovers).
The oenologist and winegrower of Vinarium Winery, Jelena Burmudžija, with undivided dedication, love and sacrifice controls grapes and vineyards, but also wine production in a way that the end result is satisfaction and pride with the wines offered. This is confirmed by the awards: Grand Wine Evaluation of Serbia in 2021 in the category “White still wines from local non-aromatic varieties” (bronze for Vinarium Župljanka 2019); in the category “Red still wines from international non-aromatic varieties” (silver for Vinarium Pinot Noir 2018, Vinarium Dedovac 2018 and Vinarium Merlot 2018); in the category “Orange Wines” (bronze for Vinarium Pinorange 2018); Beowine 2019 (silver for Vinarium Cabernet Sauvignon and gold for Vinarium Crna Tamjanika and Vinarium Merlot) and awards of the Novi Sad Fair 2018 (silver for Vinarium Pinorange 2017 and Vinarium Pinot Noir 2017).
The winery organizes wine tasting and sale with prior notice, and there is a possibility to serve food. The tasting room can accommodate up to 40 people, and the tourist programme includes a tasting of three or five wines with snacks for wine separation (homemade cured meat products, cow and goat cheeses from Banoštor and Susek), a tour of the vineyards and lunch. The ambience in which the visitors are received partly carries ethnological value, and for those who want to sleep, accommodation will be available.
Announcement a day in advance is mandatory. It is possible to organize lunch for the minimum of 5 persons upon prior announcement.
