On the association of producers of grapevine and wines with geographical indication “Srem – Fruška gora”

The Association of Producers of Grapevine and Wines with Geographical Indication „SREM – FRUŠKA GORA“ was set up in 2015, with one of its goals being to continue the fabled grapevine growing tradition of this area, and also to improve the production of grapevine and wine.

The Association was founded by 14 wineries that have recognized the benefits of association and protection of geographical indication of wine produced in the Srem and Fruška gora winemaking region. One year later, in 2016, all interested wineries were invited to join the operations of the Association, which now associates 38 grapevine and wine producers.

Experienced winegrowers and winemakers share the desire to use to the fullest the potential offered by the Fruška gora mountain, as well its favorable geographic position, climate with sufficient precipitation in the period of vegetation and a large quantity of sunny hours, orographic characteristic of the terrain, as well as the vicinity of the Danube river, which jointly form specific conditions that significantly affect the quality of the produced wine.

Over the past 20 years, the winegrowing and winemaking of the Srem and Fruška gora region has been reliving its renaissance, because both the old and the new producers have erected new vineyards and (re)launched wine production, being aware of the excellent conditions offered by this terroir.

We, the members of the Association of Producers of Grapevine and Wines with Geographical Indication „SREM – FRUŠKA GORA“, wish to standardize production and offer to wine lovers a high-quality recognizable product, which is to bear geographic indication of Srem and Fruška gora. Our mission is to enable wine lovers to enjoy every glass of wine they drink and to recognize the specificity of wine bearing the taste of Fruška gora.
