One of Fruška Gora's favorite wine tourism destinations is Vinarija Deurić Winery
Which was one of the favorite places of Novi Sad wine lovers in recent years? Fruška Gora, which also received a five-star rating as a wine tourism destination. Local residents, businessmen, and politicians have all set themselves the same goal, to promote the region that hides natural treasures and, of course, wine tourism. The landscape is stunning, and the road leading past the apple orchards and vineyards as you approach the wineries reminds you of Tuscany.
Fruška Gora, an outstanding part of Szerémség, lies at the meeting point of the mild temperate climate and the subcontinental influences, a climate that can be said to be ideal for grape growing. Its location, the exposure of its vineyards, the number of hours of sunshine and the rock and soil conditions that hide rich minerals make it one of the best wine regions in Europe. If someone has not seen the lankas of Fruška Gora, they will not know why it is worth taking on the struggle every day for the grapes, for the harvest, for the creation of value. Personal experience cannot be replaced by any well-organized remote tasting, so you can really get to know the wines if you regularly visit the wineries and taste the selection on site. The rows of grapes, the sun's rays filtering through the grape leaves, the birds and bugs - they all belong to the taste of the wine.
The Deurić winery
A nine different varieties and two indigenous varieties, namely Probus and Moravian, were planted on nearly 20 hectares of vineyards. Thanks to the careful hands, the plantations reward professionalism and dedication with a maximum, high-quality yield.
The modern, well-equipped, architecturally attractive Deurić Winery grows pinot noir, probus, chardonnay, merlot and tramini varieties in the vineyards of Fruška Gora. Their varietal structure also shows that they base their winemaking on well-proven international varieties. Their flagship wine is the full-bodied red wine called "Marselan Winemakers Edition 2015", which can only be tasted and purchased here at the winery. Another specialty is the dry white wine called Enigma, which is a blend of sauvignon blanc and chardonnay. But the dry red wine named Aksiom, which is made from Probus, Merlot, Marselan and Petit Verdot varieties, is at least as special. (The Marselan variety is not really known in Central Europe, it was created as a breeding of Cabernet Sauvignon and Garnacha in the early 1960s.) The production part is the most mysterious part of the winery, the wine cellar located about nine meters underground, where a traditional tasting table invites you to a real wine adventure.
What makes the winery, in addition to the beautiful surroundings and excellent wines, an even more attractive destination for tourists interested in wine is nothing more than the offer of conscious learning and gastronomic experiences. Speakers of the Vojvodina Sommelier Association regularly hold theoretical lectures and practical training as well. Their topics include the history of wine, grape varieties and the basics of winemaking. But there are also serving skills and questions about wine storage, which are also not negligible. Of course, the wines of the winery are also tasted, and they are even paired with suitable dishes. Food and wine pairing is essential to getting to know the wines of a particular wine region, winery or grape variety. For this reason, the famous chefs of the best restaurants in Serbia often visit the Deurić winery to create new recipes, as wine can add new flavors to food.
Even the best wine or course can be ruined by the wrong association, and no one wants that. However, we can only gain usable experience if we undertake this – let's face it – not too demanding way of learning.
