Bermet is one of the first things that cross our mind when we mention Sremski Karlovci. It is a traditional desert aromatic wine that has been produced in this region for centuries. At first, it was used as a remedy. However, with the passing of time, due to its exceptional taste it was made for pleasure as well. Vienna Court was buying Bermet from the local winemakers in advance at high prices. From the middle of the 19 th century, it was being exported regularly even to America.
Bermet is a sweet red wine with high percentage of alcohol (16% - 17%). However, it is the superb taste that distinguishes this wine from the others. The taste is derived from medicinal herbs, spices and dry fruit that are added to it during the process of production. The Ministry of Agriculture declared Bermet from Fruska Gora as a new protected brand of Serbia in 2007.
