There is a long tradition of making domestic, exceptional wine in Montenegro. Vranac is a autochthonous red grape that produces excellent full-bodied wines. Locally produced white wines include the native Krstač, sauvignon blanc and chardonnay.
Thirty kilometers from the Adriatic Sea, next to lake Skadar, are infinite rows of grapevines form one of the largest and most beautiful vineyards in Europe – Ćemovsko polje. It covers 2.300 ha with around 11.5 million grapevines.
Company that operates the vineyard - Plantaže - produces 22 million kilos of grapes annually, selling more than 16 million bottled products in over 40 countries in the world.
There are also many family-run wineries around Skadar Lake that organize wine tasting. The hosts will offer you a glass of rakija, traditional alcoholic beverage, with strong burning flavor. It is a good aperitif.
A little warning: after a couple of glasses, wine and rakija from Montenegro will make you think you can sing!
