Tonković Fantasy 2012
Tonković Winery was founded in 2006 to revive kadarka, a historical grape variety from Vojvodina and Slavonia. As a heritage winery, Tonković family has chosen kadarka, because it is a part of the culture of the region and its terroir. Today, it is almost extinct locally, although, in Hungary, it still yields some of the best Hungarian red wines. Tonković family bought a dozen hectares of land in Bački Vinogradi near Subotica, Serbia, and planted the first kadarka vines in the sandy ground. They wanted to produce a different kadarka, and thanks to the vision of Ignacije Tonković, a former diplomat and a legend of the Vojvodina public scene, they succeeded in establishing kadarka as one of the most important Bačka wines, which is also competitive internationally. The Decanter awards testify to that.
