Wine Season Featured in
A rich harvest of grapes that ripen under the gentle Montenegrin sun is one more good reason to visit this Balkan country in autumn. To try something special, taste two famous beverages that are made of local grapes: dry red Vranac and white Krstac. Both of them have a unique taste and will definitely please gourmet wine connoisseurs.
Almost all grapes for the wine grow at “Cemovsko Polje,” which is famous for its huge vineyards (just imagine about 2000 hectares!). Another place you should undoubtedly add to your “must-visit” list is Virpazar near Skadar Lake. One of the largest wine producers Plantaze has opened its cellars to visitors there; the company has also established in Virpazar an information centre and a special tourist shop where you can taste and buy fresh local wine. Also, you can taste home-made beverages since it is common among Montenegrin people to make it on their own. Sometimes this kind of drink can be even tastier than expensive branded wine!
