Welcome to presentation of Verkat Winery
at Wine Vision by Open Balkan 2023
Verkat Winery is a young family winery from Čerević, Fruška gora, founded by two sisters, Sonja and Nataša Vrkatić, in 2018, with the desire to preserve the family vineyard of Malvazija.
The plantations were soon expanded with vineyards of Grašac belii and Muscat Hamburg, and a tasting area was opened in one of the historic houses of Čerević, with an exceptional garden.
Since its inception, Verkat has followed a dedicated approach that primarily includes respect for the place we come from, Fruška Gora, and its unique nature.
To the same extent, we are also committed to the local community and culture of which we are a part and whose growth and promotion are an integral part of our goals.
In the first five years of its existence, Verkat’s small but very dedicated team managed to achieve significant success with its wines, confirming its quality with awards from domestic and international wine competitions, among which the Decanter World Wine Awards, AWC Vienna, BIWC, Vinistra, Wine Vision, while the Verkat Winery has become a well-known gathering place and promotion of our local community.
Verkat currently cultivates 7 hectares of its own vineyards, planted with Malvazija Istarska, Grašac beli and Muscat Hamburg. The expansion of the vineyard with plantings of Frankovka and Cabernet Franc is in progress.
The principles of organic protection are applied in the vineyards from 2023, with the goal of certification for organic grape production.
Verkat white and rosé wines are made exclusively from grapes from their own plantations, while red wines are for for the time made from locally grown grapes from Fruška Gora.
The current production is up to 20,000 bottles with the possibility of expanding the capacity up to 35,000 bottles.

at our stand
Light yellow in colour with aromas of green apple, ripe wild pear and flint. Gastronomic wine, which requires a good bite for complete enjoyment.
The wine is an indicator of the year in which it was made, the 2022 vintage. This year brought a wine with a lighter structure and lower alcohol content than is usual for Verkat Malvasia. A summer and refreshing wine with pronounced varietal characteristics.
Grašac beli 2020
Light yellow winethat smells of youth and freshness. Dominant are fresh citrus aromas, foremost yellow grapefruit, the mineral smell of stone, and the aroma of fresh yeasty bread.
A typical muscat scent, rose scent, intense, persistent and seductive. Notes of wild strawberries also appear shyly. Medium-bodied wine, with nice structure and pleasant bitterness in the finish.
