About
Montenegrin wines have a long and rich tradition, owing to the good conditions and favorable climate in the coastal areas as well as in the interior, which favor the cultivation of vines. Two autochthonous varieties to which the Montenegrins are particularly proud are Vranac – special taste and color of dark ruby and Krstač – dry wine with a minimum of residual sugar. Tradition of grape growing in Montenegro dates back to the 2nd century BC. The wine is stored in barrels and other wooden drums in almost ideal climatic and technological conditions. In the mid-19th century, the Montenegrin King Nikola Petrović saw the enormous possibilities of this region and the power of local wine … and brought the regulation: “Every soldier from the place where the vine grows must plant two hundred grapevines”! As for Montenegrin wine, a new era began, and Montenegrin Vranac won the first prize in 1907 at a wine exhibition in London.
