From the fertile slopes of the Vršac vineyards come the widely known wines, once poured at the Viennese palaces. On this rich soil, generations of the Sočanski family gathered knowledge and gained experience in the production of grapes and wine. Each subsequent generation would add its own personal touch and slightly improve the quality. That is why today the wines of the Classique line stand for quality, caring for wine and special taste.
The Sočanski winery is always open to all true hedonists who wish to be part of the Classique experience at its very source. In the pleasant shade of the wine cellar, you will learn how wines are made, see how they are bottled and taste them from the source. Whether you are a top connoisseur of wine or a beginner in the wine story, you will be able to taste and evaluate our nectar like all true lovers. As a finale, in the comfortable wine room you will be able to get to know and socialize with our wines, along with local specialties and the sounds of tambourines.

The Sočanski family has been engaged in viticulture for generations, and the love for growing vines and making wine is passed down from generation to generation. That is why, Dobrinko Sočanski, the owner of the winery named after his family name, has a great passion for viticulture and wine in addition to his vocation as a doctor. As a young boy, he participated in the works in the family vineyard. He remembers the days he spent there, with the famous Vrsac breeze and sweet grapes, as the most beautiful part of his childhood. That's why he regularly travels from Norway and crosses thousands of kilometers on a monetly bases, in order to take part in cultivating the vineyard, harvesting grapes and producing wine.
The Sočanski winery produces varietal wines and grows traditional grape varieties of the Banat climate, optimally matched to the characteristics and composition of the soil, the microclimate and the location of the vineyard. The best quality grapes are carefully selected and hand picked from our own vineyard, as well as from the best vineyards of other local producers. Smaller quantities and the capacity of the winery provide the opportunity to fully focus on achieving high quality. The application of modern production technology in accordance with the leading world standards, along with careful supervision and regular consultations with experts and oenologists, produces quality wines that we are proud of.
The inspiration for the label of the "Classique" comes from Kristina, Dobrinko's daughter's, commitment to music, a vocation that, like viticulture, requires complete commitment and dedication. It is easy to compare wine with a piece of music, which in order to touch us, must contain emotion and a story, to have a "soul". The same can be said for wine. It matures with hard work and a lot of effort, it requires knowledge, understanding, interpretation and a personal interpretation. The "Classique" line of wines represents a combination of two great human passions and testifies to their closeness.
Since 2017, the Sočanski Winery has been the sponsor of the International Chamber Music Festival in Vršac, where every year, in addition to various concerts featuring young talents from the country and the world, an evening of opera and wine is also organized in the winery in the village of Veliko Srediste, near Vrsac.
