The winemaking story of Fruškogorski vinogradi has begun in 2006 in the village of Banoštor. Due to the favorable geographic position, quality of soil, vicinity of the Danube River and reflection of the sunrays from the Danube’s surface, but primarily to the knowledge and dedication, the winery’s founders have managed to produce wines of recognizable flavor with pronounced characteristics of the Fruška Gora terroir.
In June 2010, the winery launched three white wines: Chardonnay, Italian Riesling and Pinot Blanc. As of 2011, the winery’s offer also encompasses Traminer, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir Rosé, Merlot Barrique and Pinot Noir Barrique.
The premium wine series was named Quet (pronounced as “kwet”), after a fortification around which the modern-day settlement of Banoštor has evolved. The goal has been to create a fortress around which the modern winemaking of Banoštor and the entire Fruška Gora Mountain should develop, so as to conquer the palates of wine lovers across the world.
Led by the idea that a good wine does not necessarily have to be expensive, the winery has expanded its offer in 2016 by quality wine series named Fruškać. This group of products encompasses Fruškać White, Fruškać Red and Fruškać Rosé. It is the wine that holds the most favorable quality-price ratio in the territory of Serbia and its neighboring countries. Wines from the Fruškać series are a pleasant surprise for wine aficionados, which prove by their reasonable price that a good wine does not have to be expensive.
