Wine Tasting Tour
A must-go for those who love their wine with a touch of soul and history.
Did you know that Montenegro is home to one of the largest and most beautiful vineyards in Europe? Cemovsko polje covers over 2,300 hectares of hills surrounding lake Skadar. Two autochthone types of grapes - "vranac" for red and "krstac" for white wine - have been growing here since the 4th century BC. Unique geographical condition encircling vineyards is combined with the Mediterranean's mild climate, making the soil remarkably fertile.
It was the Illyrians who first thought of growing grapes in Montenegro. A wise decision, given it was over 6000 years ago. Not long after, the Romans spread their knowledge of turning grapes into wine, and as they say - the rest is history.
Montenegro is also a home to 111 boutique wineries, out of which majority is family-run. Each family takes great pride in their fine liquor, first introducing guests to the history and blend of each product, then giving wine-lovers sufficient time to savor the flavors. The melody and verse of antique wine cellars are intertwined with homemade food delicacies and beautiful lush valleys in each direction.
