Kadarka is a red grape variety that has played an important role in the history of winegrowing in Bačka. In the mid 1800s, it was widely planted across the Panonian Plain, and it began disappearing after World War II because its thick clusters and susceptibility to disease make it very difficult to cultivate. Using simple techniques in our vineyards, we have elevated kadarka to a new level.
About the winery
The Tonković Winery is buried under a sand dune next to the vineyard and the farm. All of our wooden barrels have a volume of 300 litres and are made of Hungarian oak. We regularly buy new barrels, which we use for Rapsodija and Icon. All the work in the winery, including the pressing, is done manually.
The Subotica-Horgoš Sands are located in the northern part of Bačka in Vojvodina, right next to the Hungarian border. It is the southernmost part of the large sandy area stretching between the Danube, Tisza, Budapest and northern Bačka.
