Viticulture and wine industry

On the gentle hills of Fruška Gora, wine has been grown since Illyrian and Roman times. Since then, viticulture and wine production have been considered as one of the main economic branches of this area.

The wine-growing hills of Ilok produce several quality wines. The Ilok Traminac is famous throughout the world, and is drunk at the Court of England. There is also Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Rein Riesling, Chardonnay, Frankovka and others. Numerous Ilok wines have won medals and have been capturing new markets.

The biggest wine producer is “Iločki podrumi” d.d., which now owns the attractive old cellars beneath the Odescalchi castle. The number of small wineries is growing steadily. They have joined in “the wine road of Ilok”, which offers the possibility to taste wine and home-made cured-meat produce and visit the cellars.
