Palić Wine Route
The entire Palić region lies on sandy terrain left by the prehistoric Pannonian Sea. That’s why wines from this area are commonly referred to as sand wines. The sandy soil, a moderate continental climate and top grape varieties yield very appealing wines. The Subotica-Horgoš area has a winemaking tradition that goes back well over 2,000 years.
There are quite some number of wineries, from small family wineries and cosy wine cellars to a world-class estate recognized beyond the borders of the country.
Today, we are witnessing a renaissance in winemaking in Subotica sands as a result of juncture of traditional and modern technology applied to winemaking.
Local wine sorts
Local wines are fresh, crisp, slightly acid with a fruity complex and lively. A true wine that expresses the very sand are old sorts: white Kevedinka and red Kadarka but they are not the only preserved local old wine sorts. Today some new wine sorts, new to this wine region, are being introduced such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Cabernet, Sauvignon and Merlot. Both, old and new wines from this wine region, won many national and international prizes and awards.
