Vrsac and its surroundings have been known as viticulture region since the ancient times. This vineyard area covers a great part of the slopes and the bottoms of Vrsac Mountains where natural conditions enable successful vine growing. The viticulture of this region, according to historical data, dates from the Roman rule of these areas and lasts until today.
The first written data on Vrsac wine originate in 1494, when a Budim court steward paid 10,5 golden forint for the barrel of Vrsac wine intended for the Hungarian King Ladislaus.
The significance of viticulture for Vrsac area can be identified by the fact that since 1804, vine has been an integral component of the coat of arms of the town of Vrsac.
In the 19th century, this was the biggest viticulture region in Hungary, and according to certain data, in Europe as well and covered 17.000 acres (10.000 ha). In 1875, a recording harvest took place and one million of buckets of wine was produced (1 bucket = 56 litres). All the crafts and agriculture at that time were directed to viticulture, so Vrsac citizens had to import wheat to provide for food.
In 1880, Swiss wine trader Staub, built a cellar here and called it ”Helvetia” with the capacity of 100 wagons, which is in use even today.
Several centuries old tradition of a successful wine growing in the region of Vrsac vineyards point to favourable climate and soil conditions for vine growing and thus the production of quality grapes, wine and strong alcoholic drinks.
