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.

kadarka

2006

As early as the mid-19th century, it was widely planted in the Pannonian Plain to begin to disappear after World War II, as dense clusters and disease tendencies make it challenging to grow. With the unique techniques in our vineyards we have taken the cadence to a whole new level
