Erdevik Winery is situated in the village of Erdevik, in Srem, on the western slopes of the Fruška Gora Mountain.
Erdevik is one of the most beautiful villages in Srem, nested on mild hills at 140m above sea level, surrounded on two sides by the Fruška Gora Mountain and by the plains on the other two, and adjacent to three beautiful lakes.
The name of the village is most probably derived from the Hungarian word erdoveg, designating a forested area.
Erdevik Winery is today a combination of modern and traditional, where quality wines are produced exclusively from own vineyard on the right bank of the Danube River.
The Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius Probus, who ruled the empire from 276 to 282 AD, was born in Sirmium – the today’s city of Sremska Mitrovica. During his reign, grapevines were planted for the first time outside Italy, and that took place exactly on the Fruška Gora Mountain. Erdevik was among the first plantations.
In the early 19th century, Erdevik harbored significant vineyard plantations, which is why count Livius Odeskalki decided in 1826 to establish this wine cellar.
A large portion of Srem, as well as the village of Erdevik, have come in 1697 under the Austrian rule and government of the Italian family Odeskalki, which aided emperor Leopold during the Turkish siege of Vienna.
The locality Breskvik is situated above the village of Krčedin, at approximately the ideal 100m above sea level. This is where Chardonnay, Cabernet, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz ripen.
We have carefully selected the position for our vineyards. Breskvik has proven to be ideal, because that is where the best climate and soil effects of the Fruška Gora Mountain blend.
Our vineyards are heated during the day by two Suns: the one from the sky, and the other mirroring from the waters of the Danube River, helping our grapes to ripen properly and to become sweet, juicy and plump.
During the summer and autumn nights, cold breeze descends into our vineyards from the West, along the forested slopes of Fruška Gora, thus preserving the acids and fruity freshness of grapes making our wines perfectly balanced.
The local soil is layered and rich in minerals, which makes our wines firm and complex. The soil surface is made of alluvial layer covering the limestone and clay originating from sedimentation of the former Pannonian Sea.
The deepest layer reached by the roots of our vines is the stone cradle, filled with fossilized remains of shells and corals.
We nurture, cultivate and harvest our vineyards manually, choosing only the best and the healthiest grapes for our wines.
We look upon the tradition, respect the region and make wines for the future.
