“Zaustavite Dunav” (Stop the Danube)

OUT THERE
The characteristics of the climate gives music and wine its character, just as the sounds of tambourine players are a part of the life and the sounds of the legendary Zvonko Bogdan. Over the years the philosophy of his songs became infused with the philosophy of his wines, so his name that is now a synonym for a superb musical experience has naturally been transferred to his wines. The dream estate that is home to these wines is located on the eastern shore of Lake Palić and on ideal sites for fine wine production. In his quest for perfection he has made what is probably one of the best-equipped wineries in the entire Balkans, deriving from the region’s wine tradition that was also rebuilt and upgrad- ed on that same property: Music, horses and grapes!

STAY
Soon the Art Nouveau style facilities will be upgraded with a hotel with 100 rooms and a wellness centre. Ten exclusive suites will this year already be available to guests. The junction of the modern and traditional, with antiques and high quality pictures, is impressive and the true sense of nostalgia makes for a home away from home. You will also get the feeling that there is nothing standing between you and the beautiful vineyards beyond. For larger groups we currently recommend accommodation at the Galleria, which is known for being the best congress hotel in Subotica.

MEET IN STYLE
The designers of the complex worked on sustainability and the modern culture of pleasure in delivering a modern and functional appearance that dispenses with all the clichés of Pannonian pleasure. In addition to the main venue, which can accommodate up to 300 guests, we were impressed by a tasting room rounded off with a library. The glass wall gives it a modern feel, while the wine barrels are set as a part of the scenery. The terrace and numerous outdoor locations perfect for dining among the vines are also great venues for events. Immediately beyond the entrance area one can also find a conference room for 60 people.

TOP 3 INCENTIVE IDEAS

1. Zvonko Bogdan “salaš” experience
Enjoy a traditional Vojvodina’s cuisine and the tradition of the Slavonian salaš (traditional type of farm in the Pannonian Plain region).

2. Zvonko Bogdan Wine tour
Visit the winery along with a tasting of five typical wine varie- ties accompanied by selected cuisine.

3. Great experiences in a Kelebija horse farm
At the horse farm delegates can choose their favourite horse and compete with others, or take a nice horse ride through the forested area in one of the thirty authentic coaches.

You really have to experience and savour the wine and the ambience of the property to un- derstand it. A real revelation is the cuvee of ‘8 tambourine players’, which impresses with its freshness and fruity aromas. When you see the oak barrels, which mature the best vintages, you realize that nothing here is left to chance. Quintessential barrels, numerous awards from wine fairs and the wines being found on the wine lists of leading restaurants are a guarantee of a top quality culinary experience. ‘Sustainable and organic’ is the formula for success of Zvonko Bogdan’s wines.

Zvonko Bogdan farm is located next to Lake Ludaš and can accommodate 60 people. Here you can enjoy the traditional specialities of Vojvodina cuisine and the atmosphere, along with quality wines and all complemented by the sounds of tamburica music.

Subotica is a city located in the very north of Vojvodina, which itself is located in northern Serbia. The A1 motorway (E75), Serbia’s longest and most important road, passes through the city, if you prefer to get there by car. Subotica is also accessible from both Belgrade and Budapest by the highway. Most of the city’s important sights are more or less within walking distance of each other (which is also the best mode of travel through the city for appreciating its architecture and atmosphere).
