Podrum Vina Aleksandrović
Hilly terrains of Oplenac have been used for growing vine since ancient times. The people of Vinca where the Aleksandrovic family comes from have been producing wine since Roman times. At the beginning of the 20th century, the vineyard and the wine cellar of King Petar and Aleksandar Karadjordjevic were established in this area, and they spread the fame of wine from Oplenac throughout Europe.
The Aleksandrovic family is in the wine business for more than one hundred years. Milos Aleksandrovic was one of the founders of the Vinca vinegrowing cooperative in 1903.
By the beginning of World war II the family had 30000 vines and closely collaborated with winegrowers and vintners of the royal cellar from the very beginning. Grandfathers Zivota and Aleksandar Aleksandrovic continued the tradition.
When Zivan Tadic, the royal cellar master who emigrated to Canada after the Second World War, has found out that the Winery “Aleksandrovic” was restoring vintner tradition of the Oplenac area, he sent an old recipe to Vinca – and that was the brand structure of “Triumph”, which was the best royal wine, widely known at all European courts before the World War II. That is how the Aleksandrovic family started writing new pages of their long family tradition of vine growing and wine production, drawing support from the experience of their ancestors on the basis of an old manuscript, from new scientific knowledge and from modern technologies.
A new stage in the development of the Aleksandrovic Winery begins in 2000., after the political changes in Serbia, when the new winery was built and most of the modern equipment for the production of excellent wines was obtained.
