For the first time ever a Serbian wine was tasted.
Regent Reserve 2009 is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (50%) and Merlot (50%) made by Aleksandrovic winery.
Unexpected surprise, its rich flavors tend towards international taste, lively acidity despite several years ageing.

Serbian wine

There are nearly 70,000 hectares of vineyards in Serbia, producing about 425,000 tons of grapes annually. The majority of Serbian wines are produced in local wineries
The Serbian wine industry is showing signs of significant growth.
The history of wine-making in Serbia dates back to prehistory. Viticulture was rich during the Roman period. Wine has been part of Serbian culture since the establishment of statehood, especially during the reign of the Nemanjić dynasty (1166–1371), which encouraged and promoted viticulture.
Former Yugoslavia was among the top-ten world wine producing countries. At its peak in the 1970s, it produced over 6 million hectolitres annually. However, largely due to the constraints of the socialist state, emphasis was put on quantity rather than quality
