Montenegro wine tasting tour

For centuries Montenegro has been famous for its wines and spirits. Montenegro is a typical southern European country, with relatively dry, mountainous and Mediterranean climate. Several of the famous grapes for which Italy is now known for, came from this area of the world, either by sea or up the Adriatic coastline to Venice, and in the modern-day through Croatia and Slovenia. The main producing regions are close to the Capital Podgorica and around Skadar Lake.

Montenigrin wines are made from wide range of grape varieties including: Krstač, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Vranac.
