Fruška Gora – monasteries and wineries

Fruška Gora with its 17 functioning monasteries is famous as Serbian Athos Mount. Fruška Gora had a great influence on the development of Serbian spirituality and literature and Serbian State itself. Geographically Fruška gora is a perfect region for wine growing. Vicinity of Danube and light reflexion create exceptional micro climate that augments quantity of sugar in grape, mild precipitation in the mount located in the heart of Vojvodina valley and moderate continental climate differ this region from others. The first wines were planted here 1700 years ago during Roman Emperor Probus from ancient Sirmium, this is why Fruška gora is one of the oldest wine regions in Europe. Turkish seizure has almost destroyed wine-making in Srem but the dawn took place during Austro-Hungarian Empire. On the half of vineyards the dominating sort of grape is Italian „Riesling“ which is said to be indigenous sort as well as bermet, wine served at Titanic. More than 60 wineries are located under the sun of this region.
