The building of the last and, in the opinion of many, the most beautiful part of the cellar, in which oak barrels form the famous seventh street, was completed. As the cellar is situated under the Tisa river, Lederer confronted humidity by building a drainage system which is still successfully functioning today. The highly hygroscopic Tisa river sand is spread on the bottom of the cellar and, several times a day, is replaced by new sand, which has been dried in the sun.
In Second World War, the Lederer family, due to its Jewish origin, had to leave Čoka and find shelter in Hungary. After the war, they returned to Yugoslavia, but their estate was confiscated and declared a national asset.
With a view to providing a continuity of a high-quality and safe raw material base, in September 2007, the Čoka Winery became the owner of the Ohrid Winery in Macedonia. The purchase of the Ohrid Winery is a strategic move and a result of the constant effort to provide wine of supreme quality, which, in addition to the Tisa vine region, is also offered by the Ohrid one, due to its specific topography and climate conditions, the vineyards there being situated at 625 meters of altitude.
Today, the Čoka Winery boasts a history of more than a century – a history of development and discovery of new wine tastes and secrets. In a century and a decade of dedicated work and responsible business, many generations of employees have created a strong winery which has succeeded in achieving and maintaining quality.
