    The legacy of Fruška Gora

    Today’s appearance of Fruška Gora is a reflection of its geological history and contemporary geodynamic processes. Today it represents a lonely island mountain in the Pannonian Plain, and it was once an island in the Pannonian Sea.
    It is a mirror of the geological structure of the flatland regions of the sunken terrain of the Pannonian Plain in its surroundings. In its core there are Paleozoic (older than 300 million years) and Mesozoic sedimentary rocks (dinosaur time 270 million years before 65 million years ago), Mesozoic and tertiary magmatic rocks (on the Fruška Gora mountain there are volcanic rocks) and different metamorphoses. On the peripheral parts of the mountain, on its slopes and at the base, unlimited deposits (Pannonian Sea) and various genetic types of quaternary creations (sediments formed during the Ice Age) are prevalent.
    Fruška Gora is characterized by rich geological diversity that makes it a unique geotype in our area. On Fruška Gora there are deposits of various mineral raw materials, from semi-precious and ornamental stone.

    and development

    The greatest investments are in the acquisition and transfer of knowledge, as experience is a great tradition in cultivating specific varieties. Kovačević’s Winery politics is employment and giving practice already in school age to continue the tradition in its vineyards.
    Education primarily in the transfer of knowledge in the family and its associates, neighbors, workers is a family tradition, because of which the Winery Kovačević will always be a large family company.
    The development is based on the human factor and family tradition, which are the basis of the development of the Fruška Gora region.
