Description

Plantaže is the biggest wine producer in Montenegro and probably the second biggest—after Tikveš, in Macedonia—among the ex-Yugoslavia countries. Its wines are ubiquitous throughout the entire Balkan region. The winery is a partially state-owned operation and produces over 95% of Montenegro’s wine. Besides the domestic provision, it also exports wine to the rest of the Balkan region, Russia, and western Europe. The winery pumps out a mind-boggling amount of 16 to 17 million liters of wine every year. They fuel this massive production entirely from their own vines, including the largest single-plot vineyard in Europe. This single-plot vineyard stretches over 2,310 hectares with 11.5 million vines planted. The main share of the grapes planted is Vranac, which is about 70% in the vineyards. Most of the grapes are hand-harvest except for those that are used for their most basic wines.

One thing that’s particularly interesting to us is that for such a big-production winery, Plantaže does not focus on bulk wine. Check out our video review below to find out more about its production’s focus, which includes an ancient variety called Krstač.
