Vrsac wine festival
We visited Vrsac with our friends Zlata and Sasa in September 2013 to see the
wine fair. Vrsac is a small city in northeast Vojvodina, near the border to Rumania.
From the terrace of the hotel on the side of the only hill in the city.
The central streets were closed to traffic. The market stalls were similar to those found at many festivals in Serbia.
Although this was a wine fair, many other items were sold, like the sausage equipment (metal tubes to the left and right).
Sugar coated tube cakes, traditional Hungarian, were baked on the spot.
Ikons with special wooden frames.
Table clothes, very typical for Vojvodina.
One of many stalls selling grilled meat.
You select your own condiments for the pleskavica, a Serbian hamburger.
Grilling lamb and pig, and cabbage cooking in the large pots to the right
Not very visible, but there is a lot of cabbage beneath all the smoked meat.
One of many “chefs” carving up roast pork
The chimney sweep on the left was selling key rings with miniature chimney brushes.
One of several stalls with sweets.
Part of the garden section.
Festivals always have a stage for dance groups and musicians
At the very center of the festival was the short section for wine.
All wine was locally produced. Many stalls had the same wine from the one large producer in Vrsac.
Wine is sold in both bottles and in plastic jugs.
In this stall grapes were pressed in a traditional grape press and the juice sold in plastic bottles.
It was possible to buy grapes, and the price was around € 0:80/kg.
