ABOUT THE WINERY
We established Tonkovic Winery in 2006 to revive Kadarka, a historically significant grape variety from Vojvodina. As a heritage winery, we chose Kadarka because it is part of the culture of this area and its terroir.
Today, it is almost extinct here, although it crosses the border with Hungary into some of the best Hungarian red wines. We bought ten acres of land in Backi Vinogradi and planted the first vines in the sandy soil. We wanted to produce a different frame. Thanks to the vision of Igani Tonkovic, a former diplomat and legend of the Vojvodina public scene, we were able to affirm the Kadarka as one of the most important wines of Backa, which is competitive in the international context as well. Decanter’s awards testify to this. Heritage Tonkovic Winery works closely with a range of professionals: from winemaking professors from Hungary to top winemakers from Rioja. Our shared knowledge, love and dedication to the Kadarka Project have enabled us to develop premium quality vineyards and wines.
